When I was living in the Midwest, I was told Snowmass was the best resort in Colorado. After living in Colorado for 25 years, I can tell you that Snowmass is the best for top to bottom ski runs, and a giant resort that servers all level skiers. Great backcountry options in Snowmass for those who like to get out of bounds and come back into the resort. At Snowmass, you could spend your entire trip skiing and riding its terrain without covering the same ground twice. From the choice expert terrain of Burnt Mountain Glades, High Alpine and the Cirque, to the long blue groomers and impressive beginner facilities for newcomers, it is an easy choice. But it is not all about skiing and riding at Snowmass. The new Snowmass Base Village boasts an ice rink, climbing wall and the new Limelight Hotel Snowmass.
