The destination is ranked #1 overall mountain by Transworld Snowboarding magazine. The village's casual dress code extends to all facets of the town, as locals bike to festival concerts, sip a margarita on an outdoor patio after rock climbing near Independence Pass or grab an early dinner on the way home from a hike.

  • Forecasting Your Snowmass Vacation

    If it's snowing in Aspen, it will most likely be snowing in Snowmass Village (sometimes with more accumulation, depending on the storm). Snowmass is known for its epic snow conditions; by having the second most vertical feet of skiing of any ski area in the United States, the quaint village serves much-needed powder to all the land's gravity sports enthusiasts. Like any Colorado mountain destination, plan for anything; the weather is unpredictable.
