Snowmass Summer Activities

Although people associate the Snowmass area with world class downhill skiing, locals will tell you the real secret is the summer in Snowmass. Snowmass is especially majestic in the summertime. With warm, sunny days and crisp, starry nights, it’s no wonder so many flock to its pristine mountains year in and year out. Spend the day on a guided nature walk, fly fishing or playing the 36 hole challenging disc golf course up and down the mountain, soak in the sunshine at The Snowmass Club, or explore the mountains via hiking or mountain biking. The Snowmass area is also home to several golf courses, as challenging as they are picturesque.
