Inside Trails

This complimentary mountain biking experience is a highlight of summer. Enjoy the thrills of mountain biking on this guided ride along the beautiful Snowmass cross-country mountain bike trails. A bike Pro from Snowmass Bike Park will meet you in front of the Limelight Snowmass and take you to get outfitted for bikes at Four Mountain Sports nearby.

Experienced locals certified in mountain bike coaching lead these small groups and give an insider’s perspective of the mountain’s most-prized trails.

First Tracks

First Tracks is another adventure designed exclusively for guests of the Limelight. Get ready to enjoy access to Snowmass before the lifts opens to the not-quite-as-lucky general public. Just you, a few others, and miles of untouched corduroy. Of course, if Mother Nature cooperates, your morning could start with a glorious run buried in knee-deep powder. Our fingers are crossed!

Please contact the front desk for more details.

Enjoy the magic and quiet of having Snowmass Mountain all to yourself. In conjunction with Snowmass Mountain Ski Patrol, we’re giving you an opportunity like no other. As part of Patrol’s safety measures, they must “sweep” the mountain every night to make sure everyone is safely down and everything is in order.
