Make the Most of a Snowmass Weekend Trip
Getting in to Snowmass on a Friday evening will leave all of Saturday free for an outdoor adventure.

Your weekend photos are bound to include magnificent backdrops, from rolling hills of wildflowers to colorful autumn foliage. Some activities fill up quickly on the weekends, so if you plan to embark on an adventure such as white water rafting, be sure to book your excursion in advance.
Thanks to the relatively small size of Snowmass, enjoying a meal out at one of the best Snowmass restaurants is convenient from your vacation rental.
