The town of Snowmass Village, which is where the Snowmass ski area is located, is 25.5 square miles – with just over 1,800 residents. Snowmass Mountain is the largest of the four Aspen-Snowmass mountains with over 3,300 skiable acres.
The local gas station sends you back in time with that small-town, local hangout feel. A new Clark’s Market is tucked away near the post office and local shops. Two villages on Fanny Hill are within walking distance; you can also take the Snow Cab Gondola, which shuttles you up and down the hill.
Recently discovered was an entire Pleistocene ecosystem from the Ice Age in the Ziegler Reservoir. Snowmass’ new nickname is “Snowmastodon,” and you can experience some of the great finds at Base Village Mall.
