Snowmass in USA Resort Guide
Born2ski recommend Snowmass for its superb all round terrain and excellent ski in out accommodations.
With some of the best Off piste ski terrain also it truly is a great all round ski resort.
Having skied here many times - and had more than my fair share of top powder days - the snow record and lack of major queues make it one of my favourite ski areas - I hope you get chance to experience all that it has to offer.
At 4,406 vertical feet, Snowmass has the most vertical in the USA. And with 3,132 acres of terrain, 91 trails, 21 chairlifts and easy access to a superb selection of blue cruisers, deep snow covered glades, steeps, and with world class terrain parks and halfpipes, Snowmass really does offer something for everyone.
