About Snowmass

Snowmass Village is nestled in the valley beneath large Rocky Mountains near Aspen. It is home to the second-largest ski resort in Colorado, with beautiful terrain for ski and snowboard activities. 

Not only a winter town, Snowmass offers activities from fly fishing to whitewater rafting, hiking, and mountain biking. Weekly rodeos during the summer often feature the great-great grandchildren of ranchers who settled the city over a century ago. 

Snowmass is easily accessible to the mountains and only 9 miles from Aspen. The nearest airport is only 6 miles away with national flights and international connections.
