One of the most picturesque places in Colorado is the Roaring Fork Valley. Snowmass events overlook the valley for a sight that photos don't do justice. In the Summer, Snowmass Mountain transforms into a beautiful Amphitheatre where Snowmass events like the Jazz Aspen Snowmass festival take place every Labor Day Weekend. Free concerts featuring top notch entertainment also take place on Snowmass mountain through out the summer. Other Snowmass events include the Wednesday Rodeos, the Snowmass Double Volleyball Tournament, Tough Mudder Competition, craft beer festival and the food and wine festival. In the winter, Snowmass events include snow sports comps, free concerts, the New Years Even Torch Light Parade, Moonlit trek and dinner and much more.
Other things to do besides Snowmass events.
Snowmass Golf Club, world class mountain biking at the Snowmass bike park, fly fishing, the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster, Disc Golf, Tubing and whitewater rafting.
The Snowmass Rodeo takes place every Wednesday during the summer in Snowmass. It started in 1973 and has been going string since. This is great family fun and a great way to step back and take a look at how wild west was tamed. Events at the Snowmass rode include: Bareback Riding, Team Roping, Saddle Bronc Riding, Barrel Racing and Bull Riding. Before the rodeo there’s a petting zoo for the kiddos, mechanical bull rides for the adventurous, and cowboy dinner and saloon.
Snowmass is part of the Roaring Fork Valley and four mountain destinations. Those include Aspen, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk where the XGames take place every January. Free bus service connects all four mountains. Snowmass is the largest of the four mountains with 3332 acres of skiable terrain, 21 chairlifts and 94 trails. One lift ticket gets you into all four mountains. Snowmass Village is like a European ski Village with restaurant and shops. There are also multiple rental companies ready to gear you up.
