The allure of the Rocky Mountains is fully expressed in the charming nature of our Snowmass Village vacation rentals in beautiful Colorado. Surrounded by peaks and valleys, this ski resort village is a self-contained, family-friendly resort that offers a little something for each member of your varied group. From intense glade skiing and park riding to hot air balloons and photography, our Snowmass Village condos and getaways are the launch pad for adventure.
Located nine miles from downtown Aspen, and operated under Aspen/Snowmass Resort, the Snowmass ski resort boasts over 3,300 acres of varied terrain. Expert and local skiers/riders flock to Snowmass for its intense rides in the Burnt Mountain Glades and The Cirque, and park enthusiasts love the runs in the Snowmass Park and Superpipe. First and foremost, however, is this mountain's accessibility to all levels. In addition to the exceptional ski/ride school and friendly service, there are nine on-mountain restaurants to unbuckle and regroup while enjoying remarkable views. Sign your children up for ski lessons and child care services at the Treehouse Kids Adventure Center, while you ski and ride at your own pace (with breaks for adult beverages), or take an adult lesson!
Extreme mountain enthusiasts will want to sign up for First Tracks - a run with the Snowmass staff first thing in the morning, before the lifts are even running. Families will thoroughly enjoy Ullr Nights, every Friday night of the season. The celebration of the Norse god of snow includes some mountain tubing, winter eats, and ice skating.
Snowmass offers guests various opportunities to experience the mountain in the winter. Strap on the snowshoes for a naturalist-guided snowshoe tour (also available as a ski/snowboard tour) to experience Snowmass as an ecosystem. Try out Nordic skiing, or visit the Ice Age Discovery Center to learn about the recent archaeological discovery at Ziegler Reservoir.
This Colorado town winds down in the summertime, transitioning from a high-intensity ski resort to a peaceful, local haven. When you stay in a Snowmass Village condo with Vacasa, you'll have access to all the fun. Late spring through the fall mean warm days spent outside: biking Snowmass - one of the summer highlights for locals and visitors alike - hiking the alpine meadows, or strolling through Snowmass Village and downtown Aspen. Take an early morning hot air balloon ride and watch the sun kiss the tops of the Rockies, or plan a trail ride with a local stable. The Snowmass Recreation Center offers year-round athletic classes, a pool, and a rock climbing gym - or try your hand at outdoor climbing! Parents looking for an opportunity to take a couple's hike/bike ride will love the kids' day camps offered for a range of age groups.
There's always something to do in Snowmass Village - there are free concerts every Thursday night in the summer, bonfires and s'mores during Valhalla Nights, and the Jazz Aspen Labor Day Festival. While Aspen is close at hand for more activities, Snowmass is its own entity, boasting a grocery store, and even a bowling alley!
Though known for its outdoor, adventurous lifestyle, this luxurious Colorado town isn't just about skiing/riding, the biking, the hiking, or even of the surroundings. It's the feeling of connection - to the mountains, to the people, to the land - that makes a stay in a Snowmass Village vacation rental a truly special one.
