In this part of the state, cross-country skiing, hiking and mountain biking trails abound through thousands of acres of pristine mountain wilderness. Anglers go after the trout along the banks of two gold medal trout streams, the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan Rivers. Ruedi Reservoir offers the most beautiful setting for windsurfing, sailing and skiing.
Naturally, the skiing in this part of the state is literally some of the best in North America and during winter there is always plenty to do while surrounded with beautiful panoramic views. However, there is no shortage of great activities, making the Town of Snowmass Village a fantastic place to live year-round. A great Snowmass Village tradition is the annual Aspen Snowmass Jazz Festival held each Labor Day weekend.
