Snowmass Village is home to Snowmass Mountain, a popular ski area in Colorado with a summit of 4,406 vertical feet that features 3,332 acres of terrain with 94 trails and 21 chair lifts.
There is always something to do in Snowmass whether you're visiting during the summer or winter months. In the summer, try ballooning or paragliding over the area for breathtaking views that you'll never forget or try the rock climbing wall and Eurobungy trampoline. Disc golf is one of the fastest-growing sports in the country, so why not learn how to play it on the side of Snowmass Mountain during your family vacation? Horseback riding, hiking, kayaking and rafting are other popular activities to participate in warmer weather.
During the winter, enjoy cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoe tours or just taking your turn skiing or tubing down the mountain before taking the lifts back to the top.
The 18-hole, par-72 Snowmass Club Golf Course is another vacation must-see. This semi-private course has a learning center, practice area and clubhouse that's home to the Black Saddle Bar and Grille. Also at the golf club are 11 outdoor tennis courts where you can play a pick-up game or take lessons.
If the weather turns sour during your visit, head to Slopeside Lanes Bowling Alley for a night of fun. Here there are eight full-sized lanes and a lounge area equipped with a full bar, locally brewed beers, a wood-fired oven for pizza and upscale bar food.
