Snowmass received a perfect score in the family favorite category and came out on top as the overall favorite resort in the Rocky Mountain Region. The ratings were based primarily on readers' average ranking, number of reviews, and specific comments made in OnTheSnow.com over the winter season. "More and more skiers and snowboarders are relying on the word of their peers when they make resort choices," said Mountain News President and Publisher Rob Brown, whose company publishes OnTheSnow.com. "We believe the importance of reader advisories will continue to grow each year and these annual awards provide a peek into their thinking." Reviewers were clear in their comments: "Snowmass is a great family vacation and a great learners or expert mountain. There isn't anything here that will not satisfy you… Wonderful amenities. Excellent ski school. It is quiet for those who prefer quiet, but easy to get to the party scene…Snowmass is a great village, plenty of eating options, nightlife (without going into Aspen), and great ground transportation around the village… The terrain at Snowmass was fantastic; plenty for the whole family to do." Snowmass, while part of the Aspen Ski Corp. that includes Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, and Aspen Highlands, is actually a ski resort in its own right. The Big Burn is considered by thousands of skiers and riders as among the best intermediate runs in the world. Click HERE to read the reviews.
