Christmas Events in Snowmass
Snowmass is on Santa’s itinerary, and you can bring the kids for complimentary photos and gift requests at Santa’s Village in Snowmass Base Village. As the days get nearer to Christmas, the tunes of Christmas carolers can be heard making their way through Snowmass Center and Snowmass Mall. These activities are free of charge and add holiday cheer to the already merry Snowmass atmosphere.
The Christmas season is also a great time to visit the well-loved Anderson Ranch Arts Center. The whole family will enjoy gathering together around the fire for s’mores, hot chocolate, cider, and Aspen Mini Donuts before heading down candle lit paths to view the works of artists in residence. Adults will enjoy selecting original artwork to give as unique gifts, while the kids won’t want to miss making holiday-inspired crafts alongside Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Snowmass Christmas Activities
Get in the holiday spirit with a stroll through Snowmass Luminescence. As you walk through The Tunnel, you will be surrounded by illuminated walkways, arches, and art installations all made of festive lights. Much more than the traditional inflatable snowmen and Santas, the displays you will find here are thoughtful works of art.
Much of what there is to love about an Aspen Snowmass Christmas is easy access to winter activities in fresh powder snow, all with the added glimmer of holiday lights strung about. By Christmastime, skiing and snowboarding runs across all four of Snowmass’s mountains will be fully open, providing miles of downhill thrills.
However, you do not have to be an avid skier or snowboarder to appreciate Christmas activities in Snowmass. There are many other ways to experience the beauty of the season here, including family friendly options such as the alpine coaster or tubing at Elk Camp on Snowmass. End the evening recounting the best moments over cups of hot cocoa stirred with a festive candy cane.
