Snowmass, Colorado is probably best known for its white slopes and its five-star ski resorts where people flock in the cold months. Spring offers some of the benefits of both winter and summer in the area. During this time of the year, visitors can enjoy fresh snow dropped at night and beautiful weather during the day. During the spring, you can work on your tan and practice your skiing. To help you plan your perfect spring Snowmass trip, we’ve listed some of our favorite things to do in Snowmass in the spring!
Day 1: Skiing
Every ski resort in Colorado is open through March, with most being open into April as well. What most people don’t know is that Colorado ski resorts often see their deepest snow bases during March, since its typically still snowing in the spring and this time of year tends to pack a much heavier moisture content. Some years, Snowmass will actually still see snow in May, and many resorts will even have a short re-opening for Memorial Day! Due to the altitude of Snowmass, sunny days are felt much more intensely. This leaves visitors the ability to have fresh snow on the ground yet lay out and catch some sun. Some even venture out and ski in summer clothes!
Day 2: Enjoy the Weather
One of the best things to do during the spring is to get outdoors and enjoy the truly bizarre combination of snow on the ground yet warm temperatures. This weather is perfect for enjoying outdoor dining. With COVID-19 affecting indoor dining, outdoor dining is a perfect way to stay safe and enjoy the natural beauty of the area during your CO trips. We suggest taking the Sky Cab up to the top of the mountain to truly take in the sights!
Day 3: Local Museums
Snowmass and Aspen both have a beautiful collection of art and history museums. The Aspen Art Museum offers an amazing selection of international contemporary art for your enjoyment. This non-collecting institution presents the newest and most important evolutions in international contemporary art. There’s always something new to view when you visit this fascinating museum. Next, take a look through local history at the Historical Society’s Wheeler/Stallard Museum. This facility hosts various exhibits and maintains archives of Aspen’s most interesting history and pre-settlement past. After that, we suggest wandering around the town and peeking into the various smaller galleries. There is an adventure and things to do in Snowmass around every corner!
