Local's Choice

Mountain Biking

You are in luck. The Snowmass Bike Park is accessed at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola right behind the Limelight Hotel Snowmass, and offers more than 50 miles of freeride, downhill and cross-country trails. Learn more.

Road Cycling

The road to Maroon Bells is always a popular choice, but for an epic ride reminiscent of a Tour de France stage in the Alps, ascend Independence Pass east of town. (For experienced, in-shape road cyclists only).


The incongruently named Rio Grande Trail follows the Roaring Fork River (and not the Rio Grande River), offering a mellow grade, plenty of shade and beautiful views of the Roaring Fork.
