Aspen Snowmass is a mountain resort located in the central Rocky Mountains of Colorado. In winter, it is famous for four mountains of skiing and riding. But by summer, snowy slopes are replaced with meadows of wildflowers, and activities shift to mountain biking, hiking, gondola rides, family-friendly camps, disc golf and more, all concentrated on Snowmass and Aspen Mountain.



Hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails can be found in the mountains surrounding the resort, including the pristine and spectacular Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area.
