More Than Ski Fun in Snowmass Village

Snowmass Village Offers Wonderful Recreation and Accommodations All Year Long

Snowmass village is nestled amidst the #1 rated ski and snowboard destination in the world, according Transworld Snowboarding magazine. As a native Colorado snowboarder myself, Snowmass’s spot at the top of Transworld’s list is well deserved. The four mountains available to skiers and riders from Snowmass Village offer the widest variety of some of the best terrain you will ever find. These mountains are huge, and they provide access to any type of run you may prefer complete with some of the best snow conditions available in the Rocky Mountains.

But to be fair, I’m pretty sure whoever made that decision at Transworld was only considering the world-class skiing and snowboarding that can be found in the mountains that surround the actual town of Snowmass Village, which has so much more to offer than that!

Snowmass Village is for people that enjoy getting out and experiencing what life has to offer. That’s why you’ll never get board here. If you think it’s only about snow sports, than you’re probably like the 15-year-old version of me, who had only visited Snowmass Village during the Winter X Games. So, do yourself a favor and visit Snowmass during the winter as well as all other times of the year to get a feel for everything the town has to offer.

There are a ton of options when it comes to choosing your Snowmass Village accommodations, whether you prefer a ritzy hotel, practical ski-in-ski-out condominiums, a country club type resort, or if you’re on a tight budget. The question shouldn’t be whether or not to stay in Snowmass Village, but where in Snowmass Village to stay.

If it’s total luxury you’re after, you absolutely must check out the Villas at Snowmass Club. They offer just about anything you could possibly imagine from an elegant Snowmass vacation spot except for being ski-in/ski-out. There is, however, a free shuttle that takes only 2 minutes to get you from the club to the slopes.

Popular options for guests looking for affordable elegance with easy access to the slopes are condos such as the Interlude Condominiums or those of the Hayden Lodge. A great option for families and larger groups, the condos available in Snowmass Village offer a wide range of floor plans and amenities, and can be quite affordable depending on the time of year you are looking to book your vacation. Most have kitchens, swimming pools, hot tubs, washer and dryer and more.

Aside from the downhill skiing and snowboarding, residents and visitors of Snowmass can participate in a ton of different recreational activities just by calling or visiting the town recreation center or by asking just about any local you happen to bump into. Local favorites include the Winter Wild Things animal lovers event, Storytelling by the Campfire, the Bud Light Concert Series, and cross country skiing expeditions, just to name a few.

There are also a number of terrific eating and drinking establishments to make sure you check out sometime during your visit. For great, home-cooked food or just a beer with the locals, stop in to Zane’s Tavern and/or The Stew Pot. The Artisian Restaurant is also a great choice for reasonably priced fine dining or just a drink with friends and family.

Whatever time of year you decide to first visit Snowmass Village, rest assured that your experience will be rewarding. Just ask one of the 2,000 residents that live there year-round.
