Taking time to explore Snowmass is an exciting opportunity year-round. However, those heading this way over Labor Day have even more to look forward to! Snowmass comes to life with music, color, flavor, and outdoor fun this time of year. The following are just a few of the many Snowmass activities, events, and attractions you won’t want to miss when you’re setting your sights on Labor Day 2022 in Snowmass.
Experience Snowmass Activities
Making the most of Labor Day in Snowmass, Colorado is a captivating experience for visitors from start to finish. However, if you happen to be a music lover and a fan of folk, jazz, blues, country, pop, rock, and beyond, a visit this direction this time of year has even more for you to enjoy! The Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience returns in full force in 2022 much to the delight of locals and visitors alike. This music-focused experience runs from September 2nd through September 4th and is an iconic community event you simply won’t want to miss out on while you’re here. The Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience is a 3-day music festival featuring a thrilling lineup of artists performing in an open-air setting with the mountains acting as a beautiful backdrop to the fun. Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience is hosted at the Snowmass Town Park which sits at 7,914 feet in elevation and can accommodate up to 3,000 guests at a time. While the music is sure to please, the view is just as delightful from this vantage point. Snowmass Town Park offers up exciting 360-degree views and provides seamless access to Snowmass Village. With over 400 vehicle parking spots available on-site, getting to the musical fun shouldn’t be a problem. There’s also a Snowmass shuttle that connects to Town Park when you’re looking to leave the car back at your vacation rental. Three-day passes are available for purchase in advance for those looking to enjoy every moment of the experience to the fullest. In 2022, some of the highlight performances will include Stevie Nicks, Chris Stapleton, Leon Bridges, Black Pumas, Patrick Droney, Marc Broussard, and Little Big Town just to name a few.
Take Time to Hike Your Way Through the Holiday
Labor Day 2022 in Snowmass should bring with it refreshingly mild temperatures. This makes it the ideal time of year for visitors to hit the hiking trails before fresh powder falls. If you’re a traveler with a heart for outdoor adventure and a longing to hike up the boots and explore new pathways, Snowmass has plenty of options to discover. Summit Trail is a great place to start, offering hikers access to just under 2-miles of the trail to follow that starts at the top of Elk Camp. Take the gondola to get to the trailhead or consider hiking from Base Village up the Vista Trail instead. The peak of Summit Trail provides hikers with a tantalizing view of the Maroon Bells in the valley below—something well worth having your camera on hand for.
The Crater Lake Trails is another inspiring option for those hikers looking for a bit more of a challenge during their Labor Day visit. This route is 3.45-miles in length and runs through the base of both the South and North Maroon Peak. This is a legendary scene that has many hikers returning to the trail with each visit to Snowmass. But the scenery doesn’t stop there. The Crater Lake Trail also takes hikers to the Maroon Bells Visitor Center, the Four Pass Loop, and of course, Crater Lake too!
Check Out the Snowmass Balloon Festival if You’re Sticking Around Longer
If your travel plans have you staying in Snowmass a little while past Labor Day, the month of September also offers travelers the option to attend the annual Snowmass Balloon Festival from September 16th through 18th. This annual event is in its 47th year in 2022 and is always an exciting and undeniably colorful experience to check out! The festival is held at 2835 Brush Creek Road at Town Park in Snowmass Village with events running between 7:00 am and 9:30 am daily. Each day of the festival includes a spectator-friendly balloon launch and on Friday evening, guests can gather when the sun goes down to see a Balloon Night Glow event that promises to be one-of-a-kind.
