White River National Forest, Colorado
Category: Ski Areas
Office #: 1-800-525-6200
Website: AspenSnowmass.com/snowmass

Too massive to be explored in a single day, Snowmass demands repeat trips. And who wouldn't want to revisit over 3,000 acres of cruisers, steeps, terrain parks and half pipes, splayed upon a Rocky Mountain massif with a vertical drop of 4,406 feet? With 21 lifts and 94 trails, Snowmass defies belief.

The new base village in Snowmass includes over one million square feet of residential, hotel, restaurant, retail and conference space, all strategically located at the entrance of what is arguably the finest ski and snowboard mountain in the world.
