Snowmass Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Snowmass is a word of many distinctions in the area around Aspen. It’s a wilderness area, a large world-class ski resort boasting the most vertical in the state (4,500 feet), a town, a creek, and most importantly (in this case) a mountain. Snowmass Mountain is a gigantic mass of granite that sits a little over 2 miles south of fourteener Capitol Peak in the Maroon Bells / Snowmass Wilderness.
Its large East Face bowl collects snow throughout the winter months, which oftentimes does not melt out until August or September. Together with its neighbor down the street—Mount Sopris and the Thomas Lakes Bowl—these two peaks offer over 3,000 feet of continuous skiing in a massive bowl, providing a descent akin to skiing a Cascade Range volcano in the Pacific Northwest."
