Having fun on Snowmass Ski Area isn’t limited to the winter. Tucked among the trees at Snowmass you'll find our newest attraction — Lost Forest. The alpine adventure park, built mid-mountain near Elk Camp, is a whole new world offering excitement for all ages. From challenging obstacle courses and zipline thrills to calm pondside fishing and disc golf, the Lost Forest is a place you’ll want to find.
Canopy Run Zip Line
What better way to see the Elk Mountain forest than from the top of it? Eight ziplines and three sky bridges connect tree-top platforms—the only of its kind in Colorado—for a 3-hour tour above the ground, reaching heights of 90 feet.

The experience is guided and participants tour the entire course, rather than pieces of it. Pro tip: The course is progressive so it starts out easy and then ends with a 1,300-foot double-zipline so you can enjoy the forest canopy with a friend.

Breathtaker Alpine Coaster Aspen Snowmass

Breathtaker Alpine Coaster
The speedy alpine coaster drops 400 vertical feet across a mile of track through a wooded forest. Riders control their own speed with handbrakes—going as fast as 28 mph—and though the course is full of twists and turns, the ride is comfortable and smooth. The Breathtaker is open during summer and winter as well, so you can enjoy this thrill ride year-round!

Pro tip: Hoot and holler on the way down to tease people who can hear you while being tugged uphill for their first ride.
