With its extensive 3,362 acre ski area and fantastic childcare facilities, it is no wonder Snowmass is so popular with families. Conveniently situated 15 minutes drive from downtown Aspen, Snowmass offers a great range of ski in, ski out hotels, apartments and luxury chalets. Included within the ski pass is access to the four mountains of Aspen, Buttermilk, Highlands and Snowmass itself.

Just 20 minutes away from the prestigious Aspen resort lies the laidback, friendly ski area of Snowmass. A popular spot for families and groups with mixed abilities, it offers more vertical feet of skiing than any other resort in the USA, with 17 lifts meaning less time waiting in line. It's also famous for having a large number of ski-in/ski-out properties, so if you rent chalets in Snowmass, you don't have to worry about carrying all your equipment to the slopes.
At an elevation of 2473 metres, Snowmass enjoys spectacular views over the four peaks of Aspen Mountain. One of the most famous spots in Snowmass is the Sundeck, a restaurant at the top of the Silver Queen gondola with a wide, flat terrace that attracts the sunshine, and here you'll find skiers stopping for lunch and taking in the panoramic views.
One of the reasons that The Oxford Ski Company recommends Snowmass is because of the great facilities that are nearby. The village has attractions such as an arts centre and museum, and there are many tours available around the Rockies which our staff can book for you. You're also just a short drive from Aspen with its upmarket restaurants, designer boutiques, and luxurious facilities, so there's plenty to do both on and off the slopes.
Ski-in and Ski-out
If you want to beat the queues and get your day of skiing started early, then ski-in and ski-out access is ideal, and hotels such as the The Westin Snowmass Resort allow you to be on the slopes in minutes. If you're with a large group and considering booking a chalet in Snowmass, then the Westin can be a great alternative, as it offers both hotel rooms and suites that sleep up to four. For the ultimate in luxury, the Slope View Suites come highly recommended, with their own ski-in and ski-out access, so you can go straight from your room to the mountainside.
The hotel also has many other impressive features that skiers will love, including an outdoor pool and hot tubs, a relaxing spa, and a great choice of restaurants and bars. It's also just steps away from the charming Snowmass Village Mall, which has specialist ski shops for any items you've forgotten to pack, as well as high end food, gift, and clothing stores.
