Snowmass Village is the small resort town that supports Snowmass Ski Resort. It has several restaurants and higher end shops. The town itself is small but has everything that most skiers will need while on vacation. During the summer there is great hiking in the area and some very pretty mountains to enjoy.



Sights and Activities

  • Snowmass Ski Resort is the main attraction and the only reason why the village is there. This is full service ski resort with plenty of ski options and other recreational activities. There are several deals for people looking for Ski School lessons, equipment and lift tickets. Official Website:



Getting There

By Plane

The nearest airports are Aspen Airport, Grand Junction Airport and Eagle County Airport.

Aspen Airport (IATA: ASE, ICAO: KASE) has service with United Airlines, Delta Airlines and Frontier Airlines. Most flights are from Denver although there are daily flights during the winter from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago.

Grand Junction Airport (IATA: GJT, ICAO: KGJT, FAA LID: GJT), known as Walker Field, has direct flights to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Dallas, Salt Lake City, Denver and Phoenix. Most of the planes flying out this airport are small and considered puddle jumpers.

Eagle County Airport (IATA: EGE, ICAO: KEGE) is a larger airport then the other two and handles larger airplanes. Most of the flights are seasonal and include cities like Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Houston, Newark, Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Minneapolis-Saint Paul.

By Car

Take I-70 to Highway 82 then go south.



Keep Connected


There is a very small internet bar/cafe culture in the USA. Even then most of the internet bars/cafes tend be located in major urban centers. Accessible WiFi networks, however, are common. The most generally useful WiFi spots are in coffee shops, fast-food chains, and bookshops, but also restaurants and hotels more and more have a network to connect on. Some of them might require you to buy something and you might need a password too, especially in hotels.


See also International Telephone Calls

The general emergency phone number is 911. The USA has a great landline phone system that is easy to use. The country code for the U.S. is +1. The rest of the telephone number consists of 10 digits: a 3-digit area code, and a 7-digit number. Any small grocery store or pharmacy has pre paid domestic or international phone cards. These phone cards are very cheap and offer good rates. The once ubiquitous pay phone is now much harder to find. Likely locations include in or near stores and restaurants, and near bus stops. The cellphone network in the states is slowly getting better but is still not as good when compared to other western countries. Cell phones tend to operate using different frequencies (850 MHz and 1900 MHz) from those used elsewhere in the world (2100 MHz). This used to prevent most foreign phones from working in America. Phones must be tri- or quad-band to work in the U.S. Fortunately, technology has meant that most phones should now be able to pick up one of the U.S. networks. Prepaid phones and top-up cards can be purchased at mobile phone boutiques and at many discount, electronics, office supply and convenience stores. A very basic handset with some credit can be had for under $40.


The US Postal Service is a very good and well priced mail system. There are post offices in every small and large town for sending packages internationally or domestically. Although some might keep longer hours, most are open at least between 9:00am and 5:00pm. If wanting to send a letter or postcard it is best just to leave it in a blue mail box with the proper postage. First-class international airmail postcards and letters (up 28.5 grams) cost $1.10. There are also private postal services like FedEx, UPS, TNT and DHL, which might be better value sometimes and are generally very quick and reliable too.
