Family-Friendly Activities to Enjoy in Snowmass Village

Have you gone ahead and recently booked your big family vacation to Snowmass Village, CO?  Are you now hustling trying to make a list of activities for the family to enjoy? Snowmass Village is known for its endless amount of outdoor activities, dining, and shopping, but what about kid-specific activities? We’ve put together a fabulous list of family-friendly activities that you and the kids can enjoy, and are sure to make it a memorable trip for all.

Ski Classes

If you're visiting Snowmass Village then there is a good chance you are planning on skiing. For kids who are new to the sport, or still learning, it can be beneficial to book them a ski class. These are readily available and can provide them with the skills they need to enjoy the slopes.

Ice Age Discovery Center

If your kids have an interest in dinosaurs then the Ice Age Discovery Center is the place to take them. Here, kids will get to learn all about a high-elevation ice age fossil called Snowmastodon. This fossil was discovered in 2010 by workers who were building the Ziegler Reservoir. The site ended up providing 30,000 small bones, and 6,000 large bones that belong in 52 different species.
Here kids can check out the replicas and fossils, chat with the paleontologists, walk through the displays, and check out the interactive activities.

Whitewater Rafting

If you are visiting Snowmass Village during the summer months, then it is the perfect time for some whitewater rafting. It's a great way to get the whole family involved and outdoors.

Explore the Trails

For those who enjoy hiking and biking, you’ll find a wide array of trails to explore. They vary in length and difficulty, providing a little something for everyone.

Gondola Rides

Families that are visiting Snowmass Village for the first time must check out the gondola rides that will provide you with a whole other perspective of the destination. There are two different destinations you can check out, and the ride is operational all year round.

A Customized Private Tour

Snowmass also features private family adventures, which provide you with a really special opportunity. You can customize the package by picking the number of activities you want to include, which may be such things as biking, paintball, fishing, camping, or hiking.

Book Well in Advance

While not a family activity, it is important to note that if you’re planning to holiday in Snowmass Village you will want to book well in advance, especially during peak season. Snowmass Vacations is a great source of fabulous properties. You're sure to find that perfectly located mountain escape for you and your family, which will help to ensure the trip is a success.
