Around SnowmassYou won't have to go far to see fall color in Snowmass Village. Right out our backdoor, thick stands of aspen turn brilliant shades ranging from marigold to ochre, with peak color happening in late September and early October.
On weekends through the end of September, the Elk Camp Gondola runs to afford visitors access to hiking and mountain bike trails. For a long bike ride with excellent fall-color sightseeing, take to the Government Trail. Those seeking a wilder experience should proceed to the East Snowmass Trailhead which ascends a scenic valley in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness. Hiking and horseback riding are allowed on this trail, but mountain biking is not.
