Where Aspen is the glitzy ski resort town people from the world over flock to, Basalt is homey, sophisticatedly low-key, and incredibly local. The town only has around 4,000 residents, and most people know each other. In Basalt’s downtown core, the chatter is lively, with conversations covering just about everything under the sun. One topic, however, is always talked about: Basalt’s immaculate mountain wilderness, all thanks to its location in the Roaring Fork Valley.

But for those who want pastimes other than skiing and snowboarding, Snowmass Village also has other offerings. A myriad of activities take place over the summer, from high-altitude races to live music and dancing. And when the snow thaws, Snowmass Village is just as beautiful.


The mountainsides come alive in a display of vivid colors, with lush carpets of alpine wildflowers covering the grounds. White River National Forest fully surrounds Snowmass Village, with over 750,000 acres of undisturbed mountain wilderness that can be explored all year round.

True to Snowmass Village’s first love, the local real estate includes luxury ski-in, ski-out properties in neighborhoods such as Two Creeks and The Divide, perfect for those who want easy access to the slopes during ski season. Upmarket single-family homes and slopeside condominiums are also available. Snowmass Village real estate comes at a premium as the market has low inventory due to its location, making each home and parcel of land highly sought-after.


Snowmass Village’s ski-in, ski-out properties are situated right on the slopes or along the ski lifts of Snowmass, which offers different kinds of terrain to match any type of skier. About 95% of the properties in town are under this category, allowing easy access to fresh powder runs especially during peak ski season.


White River National Forest offers plenty of seasonal outdoor recreation for residents and tourists. And as one of the largest sections in the country’s entire National Forest system, nature’s display here is at full force. Popular activities include multi-day hikes (White River covers a total of 2.3 million acres of public land), bird-watching, camping, fishing, caving, horseback riding, and of course, winter sports. All of these can be enjoyed in any of White River’s eight wilderness areas.


People always look forward to ski season in Snowmass Village, but the town has a long list of highly anticipated events, too. These include the three-day and colorful Snowmass Balloon FestivalJazz Aspen Snowmass, a summer music festival founded in 1991; Snowmass Rodeo, Colorado’s longest running rodeo; Heritage Fire, an annual fête dedicated to live-fire cooking and drinks; and Cidermass, one of the best ways to sample libations from different parts of the country.
