Breathtaker Alpine Coaster

While many of the top attractions in Snowmass are only available during certain seasons, the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster is one that you can enjoy year-round, no matter when your visit is planned. Great for riders of all ages, this coaster promises fun for the entire family!

The Breathtaker Alpine Coaster consists of luge-like sleds that operate independently of one another, unlike a regular roller coaster. Enjoy a relaxed ride up the mountain and then thrilling speeds on the way down, zipping along the elevated track at a pace of up to 28 miles per hour. Each car is equipped with a hand brake, great for those who would prefer a slower ride or for those with children on board. The track is over a mile in length and takes 7-9 minutes to complete.

Who Can Ride the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster?

A maximum of two people can ride together in the coaster, within a given maximum weight limit. While there is no minimum age for children, riders must be at least 38 inches tall. Drivers must be at least 54 inches tall.

Riding the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster in Winter

Riding the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster in Summer

Feel the breeze in your hair and enjoy the beauty of the mountains and forest when you ride the Breathtaker Coaster at Aspen Snowmass in summer! While the coaster itself is a thrilling stand-alone activity, it also pairs well with the entire the full Lost Forest experience. The Lost Forest is a summertime favorite in Snowmass and combines the thrill of the coaster with the excitement and challenge of a treeline challenge course, canopy ziplining, and rugged ascent climbing wall. The treeline challenge course consists of rappels, ziplines, bridges, and ladders all on a course elevated in the trees. Five different courses of varying difficulty make this a fun experience for the whole family!
