Local Lifestyle

Snowmass has the quality recreation of Aspen with more of a family-oriented feel. A unique feature of the Snowmass ski area is its accommodations for adaptive skiing. This program allows people with disabilities to enjoy the sport that the area is known for. Lessons and schools are widely available for kids and adults alike to improve their skiing skills. In the summer, there are endless ways to pass the time. From nostalgic outdoor events to hiking, biking, and fishing in the pristine natural landscape, residents are outside more than inside during the warmer months.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

From family-friendly joints to elegant dining rooms, Snowmass has a little bit of everything. Il Poggio is the best representation of the latter, with authentic Italian cuisine served in a rustically chic atmosphere. The handmade pizzas and pastas, as well as the artisan meats, are decadently delicious.
For a funkier option, Kenichi is a local sushi spot with bright flavors and innovative dishes. Rolls, nigiri, and sashimi are offered in abundance, along with specials like lobster and wagyu nabe.
Fuel is the best way to start an active day on the slopes. This cozy cafe offers healthy and hearty breakfast and lunch options that don’t skip out on flavor. Grab a wrap and an espresso drink or a smoothie to go. Health food lovers will rejoice further at JÜS, a sensational cold-pressed juicer.
For gourmet groceries from a local business, Clark’s Market is a welcoming establishment with a small-town feel. The helpful, knowledgeable staff at Strafe Outerwear can help you stock up on everything you’ll need for the slopes.
For days when the family needs a break from the mountains, Anderson Ranch Arts Center is a community gathering place where children and adults can take creative workshops and see art installations.

Things to Do

Snowmass has a great schedule of events for visitors and residents to enjoy. The JAS Labor Day Experience is a popular music festival that attracts big-name performers. Popular artists like Stevie Nicks and Chris Stapleton have been included among the headliners.
The Snowmass Free Concert Series is a family-friendly summer music event where attendees can enjoy the mountain view and live music. The quintessential summer gathering in Snowmass is the Snowmass Rodeo. An exciting lineup of horse- and bull-riding events makes for a lively night.
The best way to take in the panoramic view of Snowmass’s signature mountains is on a hot air balloon ride. This pastime is a local tradition and can be enjoyed at a grand scale at the Snowmass Balloon Festival. An alternative way to enjoy the natural landscape is the Lost Forest adventure park. Get lost in the woods with zip lines, rope courses, trails, and ponds to navigate.


Snowmass is served by the Aspen School District and the Roaring Fork School District.
