I can't say enough great things about Snowmass. From the high speed lifts to the near perfect grooming, to the gnarly terrain parks. This mountain is sure to leave a seemingly permanent smile on your face. There is a huge number of groomed blue runs as well as a good amount of blacks and double blacks. You can also find sweet powder stashes in the trees throughout the mountain if you look. The terrain parks are top notch and if you are ever in a bind, no worry, there is ski patrol everywhere on this mountain. If you get hungry there's a great list of restaurants at the bottom of the mountain and even a couple ON the mountain. The only bad things about those is that they seem to open a little late in the day. My biggest complaint is that the mountain is VERY crowded, and the nightlife isn't the greatest at "Snowmass" per say, but 15 minutes away is Aspen. All in all if you like bombing down groomers, creating sick lines in the park, or like to play in the pow, Snowmass has it all. I definitely can't wait to go back.
