- Studio condos are great for two travelers. Families will fit comfortably in one- and two-bedroom condos, both of which can accommodate up to two kids 12 or younger for free. Each comes with a full kitchen, and some have gas fireplaces.
- The onsite The Edge Restaurant & Bar serves Alpine-inspired food, including Swiss cheese-infused beer soup and three types of wurst.
- The resort has a slope-side heated outdoor pool and hot tub.
- You can grill, picnic, and relax on a 1,200-square-foot sun deck with panoramic mountain views.
- Warmer months open up the mountain to a number of activities, including gondola rides and golfing at Snowmass Club.

Snowmass Village, Colorado: Quaint Alpine Village and Gateway to Rocky Mountain Recreation
Hidden in the Rocky Mountains of central Colorado, Snowmass rounds out a quartet of popular ski resorts in the area, along with Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk. There’s still plenty to do in the summer and fall here. Snowmass’ Elk Camp Gondola lift is open in the summer and select weekends in September and October, whisking hikers and mountain bikers to higher spots on the mountain, amid miles of trails. Other popular pursuits include fly-fishing, golf, rock climbing, horseback riding, and whitewater rafting on the Colorado and Roaring Fork rivers.
Aspen is less than 9 miles away. The city’s historic downtown area is lined with red-brick buildings housing upscale boutiques and fine-dining restaurants. You can find a number of art galleries and museums here, too, including the Aspen Art Museum, located in a structure built by renowned architect Shigeru Ban. This gallery-like space hosts contemporary art exhibits, activities, and lectures form local and international artists. The Wheeler Opera House, situated in the cradle of downtown Aspen, is also worth a visit. Built in 1889, it’s now used as a venue for movies and concerts.
