Wayfarer travel TV exclusive: how Colorado’s Snowmass offers sensational skiing and boarding for beginners and experts alike

by James Wilkinson

Located a short drive from the picturesque town of Aspen in Colorado, the Snowmass Ski Area is one of America’s most popular alpine playgrounds, thanks to its offering of sensational runs for both beginners and experts alike.

In the Snowmass Ski Area, expect 4,406 vertical feet, 3,342 acres of terrain, 98 trails, 21 chairlifts and access to your choice of cruisers, glades, steeps, terrain parks and halfpipes. You could say there is something for everyone here and it comes without the crowds.

The town is also home to some fantastic ski-in, ski-out properties, including one of Wayfarer’s favourites, the Viewline Resort Snowmass, alongside a plethora of dining options.

To find out why the town and ski area is so unique, Wayfarer host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera to Snowmass General Manager Susan Cross and to view the video, click on the YouTube video above.
