Old Snowmass

A quiet place to live and an excellent basecamp for outdoor adventures centered around the Elk Mountains and Roaring Fork River.

Welcome to Old Snowmass

Under wide open skies, Old Snowmass stretches as far as the eye can see. It’s only about 15 miles from Aspen, but the difference between the two is worlds apart. Old Snowmass is all expansive, rolling hills that change colors as the seasons turn, the landscape dotted with ranches and open spaces that add to nature’s sprawl. There is hardly anyone for miles, save for occasional glimpses of horse and white-tailed deer, to name some of the local fauna. Old Snowmass is peace and tranquility in the flesh.
 
Old Snowmass (officially known simply as Snowmass) as a hamlet is both a quiet place to live and an excellent basecamp for outdoor adventures centered around the Elk Mountains and Roaring Fork River. Miles of hiking and backcountry trails weave around town, leading to established recreation haunts and, once in a while, someplace relatively new and pristine. Almost every day is serene, but action kicks into gear in the summer and winter, when outdoor enthusiasts of every manner make Old Snowmass their stomping grounds.

What to Love

Proximity to Aspen

Old Snowmass is an excellent option for those who want the glitz and glamor of Aspen without living there. The ski resort town is only a scenic 20-minute drive southeast of Old Snowmass, the way following the turns of Roaring Fork River. Residents can easily trade the solitude of Old Snowmass with Aspen’s activity for the day and come home when they’ve had their fill.
 

Variety of seasonal activities

Old Snowmass’ collection of trails always offer something different every season. Exploration and discovery—on foot, on a bike, or on horseback—are both highly encouraged. Summer is the prime time for pursuits like mountain biking, hiking, trout fishing down Roaring Fork River, and horseback riding, but these activities are just as enjoyable in the late spring or fall. Come winter, there’s world-class skiing nearby in Aspen, most notably Aspen SnowmassButtermilk, and the legendary Aspen Mountain.
 

Plethora of nearby events

Apart from Aspen, residents of Old Snowmass are also a short drive away from an incredible line-up of annual festivities. These include the iconic Snowmass Balloon Festival in neighboring Snowmass Village. The three-day affair is a signature Rockies event and has been so for nearly 50 years.
