Snowmass Colorado Winter Activities

If you’re visiting Snowmass Colorado this winter there are plenty of fun, exciting activities to keep you and your family busy! From cross-country skiing to tubing to ice skating and more, there’s something for everyone.

For families, there are also tons of indoor fun at the Snowmass Village Recreation Center. It has a climbing tower, an ice skating rink, a fitness center, an outdoor heated pool and more!

Dogsled Tours

Dogsled tours are a great way to enjoy Snowmass in the winter. These sleds can carry two people at a time and are driven by experienced mushers.

This tour is a popular activity, so make sure to reserve your spot well in advance.

These tours start near Snowmass Village and take riders into pristine wilderness areas where you can feel the power of the sled and the team of dogs.

They last about an hour, and are a fantastic way to spend a day outside with the family. They can be done by all ages and abilities, so everyone can enjoy the experience.

Krabloonik is one of the only companies in the region that offers this unique experience, and it has been a favorite of our guests. The sleds are pulled by 8 to 10 Alaskan huskies, and an expert musher guides them.

Snow Tube Run

Snow tubing is a popular activity in Colorado and is offered by many ski resorts. This is a great way to cool off after a day on the slopes.

Snowmass has a snow tube run which is a fun and exciting way to take a break from skiing. This tubing hill is located at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola and is a great option for adults and kids alike.

Another favorite with locals and visitors is the Hideaway Park tubing hill. This hill is open from dawn till dusk and is one of the best snow tubing options in the area.

If your super tiny child is too small to go on a normal snow tubing hill, Copper Mountain has a Squeal Hill where little ones of 36 inches or under can ride on a gentle slope. This is a wonderful opportunity to build memories together as a family!


After a day on the slopes, it’s time to kick back and enjoy some post-ski fun. Snowmass has an array of activities available to visitors and locals from sleigh rides to dog sledding to on-mountain tubing, and even swimming.

Apres ski is a popular French term that means “after skiing” and it refers to a variety of social activities, entertainment, and events that take place after the end of a day’s skiing. This is often a great time to meet with friends and family after a long day of adventure on the mountains.

With a huge outdoor patio facing the slopes, Aurum Food & Wine is a new addition to the apres scene on Snowmass Mountain. Whether you’re looking to cozy up around the fire pit or linger over snacks like Korean fried chicken and signature cocktails, this is a spot you don’t want to miss.


While many people come to Snowmass to ski, there are plenty of things to do that don’t involve a slope. For example, enjoy an alpine coaster ride with your kids at Lost Forest or hike through the serene forests of Elk Camp on a snowshoe tour.

For those who need a little more exercise, try biking along the East Snowmass Trail, a 7.3-mile climb that winds through evergreen and aspen forests before finishing at the mountain’s summit. Aside from getting your heart pumping, you’ll see some of the best views in Aspen and Snowmass.

For those who need to burn off that extra energy of a long day on the mountain, the Snowmass Village Recreation Center offers a variety of fun classes and activities. You can take a yoga class, swim in their unique outdoor saline pools, work out in their cardio and weight rooms, play basketball or even challenge yourself on one of their climbing walls or bouldering caves.
