Whether striking off on your own or taking a guided tour, snowshoeing around Snowmass is a unique experience that you shouldn’t miss. Great exercise and you’ll also have some incredible views.

Sleigh rides
Skiing Snowmass is wonderful, but wait until you try an old-fashioned sleigh ride. A horse-drawn sleigh can be a romantic interlude that will be remembered for years to come.

Snowcat rides
A snowcat ride with a tour group is one way to discover the Rocky Mountain wilderness in its unspoiled state.

Dog sledding
You can enjoy a dog sledding tour around Snowmass. Being pulled along pristine white forests by Alaskan Huskies, just the sound of the sled whispering along, can be quite an adventure.

Ice skating
Both indoor and outdoor ice-skating are available around Snowmass. It’s a great way to loosen up in preparation for the slopes.

During the winter season, you can take advantage of the clinics offered in Snowmass. They help a skier improve his or her skills with powder, steeps, terrain parks and more.
