For the outdoor adventurer, Snowmass offers miles of fun and exploration. From snow sports in the winter to hiking and biking in the summer, there’s never a shortage of activity options in Snowmass. Even for those who prefer a more relaxed vacation, this town’s rugged mountain terrain offers a spectacular backdrop for enjoying a scenic view while dining or curling up by the fireplace. Whether you plan to race at top speeds down the epic slopes in Snowmass or sip a warm drink as you enjoy the snowy landscape from indoors, these are a few things to consider when planning your Snowmass vacation.
When to Go on a Snowmass Vacation
For the best conditions for the many snow sports offered in Snowmass, consider planning your mountain Aspen Snowmass vacation for December-April when the powder is at its best. Summer is also a popular time to visit Snowmass, with warm temperatures in the 70s great for hiking and biking. Both summer and winter are considered the peak travel seasons in Snowmass, so be sure to book ahead if you plan to travel during these times. If you’d prefer to avoid the crowds and score better deals, consider a fall trip to Snowmass. You’ll be treated to spectacular fall foliage and fewer visitors on the trails!
What to Do
Approximately 200 inches of snowfall per year means that Snowmass becomes a winter wonderland ideal for snow sports. Downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, and tubing, among others, are all great ways to enjoy a Snowmass winter.
On the other hand, if you’d prefer to explore the scenic terrain of Snowmass during warmer temperatures, consider planning your Aspen Snowmass vacation for the summer. Summer in Snowmass means biking, hiking, and attending festivals under a sunny blue sky. Over 80 miles of trails through the White River National Forest are easily accessed from Snowmass, providing a vast network for exploration. Snowmass Bike Park also offers an extensive network of off-road biking trails for riders of all levels. And activities such as The Lost Forest and the Snowmass Balloon Festival provide other options for enjoying the area even without a rugged adventure.
