Snowmass Mountain may be best known for winter activities, but when the snow thaws, there are even more activities to take advantage of. Hop on board the Elk Camp Gondola with your mountain bike and experience Snowmass’ thrilling trail system. Or access 36 holes of disc golf, miles of hiking trails, paintball and even a kid-friendly climbing wall and Eurobungy. The Elk Camp Lift will take you even higher — to a summit of 11,325 feet — where the views stretch on for miles. Sign up for a naturalist hike with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies and get to know the alpine ecosystem a little better.
For more information on the below activities, please contact the Concierge.
