Right out our backdoor are the slopes of Snowmass, an aptly named ski resort that has been delighting skiers for 50 years now. From first tracks to last light, it is the kind of mountain that keeps revealing its secret stashes many years after your first visit. But that’s not all. One lift ticket gets you access to all four mountains in the valley, and you’d be remiss to limit yourself.Here is a guide to each of the four mountains, starting with those closest to the Limelight Hotel Snowmass.
One of three Snowmass terrain parks, the largest is the true test of one’s skills. Throw-down with the locals.
We love food trucks, but you don’t see them often on ski slopes. Unless you are at Snowmass, that is. The Sled is exactly as it sounds: a mobile kitchen pulled behind a snowcat.
The terrain off the Big Burn lift at Snowmass is perfect for groups of varying degrees of skill. Long easy groomers? Check. Expert glades, too? Check. Secret powder stashes? Yep.
Lynn Britt Cabin
For a midday dose of sunshine on a bluebird day, nothing beats a drink at the Lynn Britt. Grab an Adirondack and soak up some rays.
