New Base Village at Snowmass
Latest Updates on the Base Village at SnowmassOn-Mountain Improvements
Sheer Bliss Lift
The new $7 million lift replaces the old double chair with a quicker and more comfortable ride. The new lift has been repositioned so that the bottom terminal is slighly lower and to the east and the top terminal is higher. Skiers can now access the Cirque terrain without hiking and can ski into Up 4 Pizza. The quad chair takes nine minutes and can carry 2,000 passengers an hour
Village Express Lift
The existing Fanny Hill chairlift was replaced with a six-passenger lift - the Village Express. A speedy 9.5-minute ride gets you from the bottom of Fanny Hill to the top of Sam's Knob, with a mid-way unloading station. Village Express accommodates 2,800 people per hour, is 10,057 feet long and has 2,174 vertical feet of rise. The lift cuts total riding time in half and eliminates waiting in two additional lift lines to access the same terrain!
Sky Cab (Mall Connector)
A fast and fun aerial link between existing Snowmass Village Mall and new base village joins commercial centers and integrates conference/community activities. This two-minute ride (think of it as an elevator on cables between two villages and retail centers) provides uphill or downhill connectivity to a one-of-a-kind Snowmass Village complex. Cabins are six-passenger.

Snowmass offers 29 lodging properties, ranging from budget to full service deluxe hotels to luxury condominiums or townhouses. In Snowmass, 95% of lodging is ski-in/ski out.
