Aspen/Snowmass is ready to welcome skiers this season with safety protocols to keep you and your family safe and healthy. Social distancing, face coverings and occupancy limits on indoor facilities will be strictly followed. Guests can avoid the ticket office by using the new Aspen/Snowmass Account Portal. The Aspen/Snowmass App allows guests the ability to purchase lift tickets, ski rentals and lessons online before arriving at the resort. The App guides you through the steps to complete confirmations, digital waivers and registrations. Guests can track skier days, trail reports, snow conditions, weather updates and parking lots and passholders have access to exclusive App Rewards.
At Snowmass there will be 28 acres of new snowmaking providing early season skiing
in the Alpine Springs area. The Big Burn lift will be replaced with a new six passenger high-speed chairlift, whisking skiers up the mountain in only 7 minutes.
Snowmass Skiers welcomes two new on-mountain restaurants: High Alpine and the
Alpin Room for traditional mountain fare and Sam’s modern Italian restaurant and coffee bar at Sam’s Knob with sweeping views of the Elk Mountains.
Snowmass Base Village
The Snowmass Base Village continues to expand with new restaurants and shops around the Collective Snowmass community building, the new Snowmass Limelight Hotel and the opening of One Snowmass ski-in ski-out luxury residences. The Treehouse Kids Adventure Center houses children’s ski school, rentals and childcare all under one roof. The center has been redesigned for better flow to help parents and kids get out on the hill faster and safely.
