Snowmass Ski Area

Snowmass is the largest of the four resorts that make up the Aspen Snowmass lift pass and skiing and riding experience with 3332 acres (1348 hectares) of mild to wild terrain. In fact, the resort is so enormous that it is billed as the kind of place where you can spend your entire trip skiing and riding without descending the same run twice and is sometimes nicknamed Snowmassive. The ski area is blanketed in almost 16 feet (5 meters) of snow each winter, with a longer than average season running from the last week in November to the last week in April.
