Aerial Approach Disc Golf

Try your hand at one of the fastest growing sports at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola. Located in the Lost Forest, the Aerial Approach disc golf course is one of a kind. In Snowmass, you'll find the first—and only—place in Colorado to boast two 18-hole courses.

When you arrive at the base, stop by Four Mountain Sports at Snowmass Base Village near the Elk Camp Gondola to rent your discs (if you aren't bringing your own). Once you have your discs, take the Elk Camp Gondola to the top and exit. You must purchase a Sightseeing Ticket to ride the gondola.

The Aerial Approach disc golf course is located in the Elk Camp Meadows area, with the first tee near the top of the enclosed surface lift. It is easily accessed by following the gravel path past the Lost Forest Headquarters. If you have any questions, please speak with a Lost Forest employee and they would be happy to point you in the right direction.
