Snowmass has gained quite a reputation over the years for being a hot spot for Rocky Mountain Summer fun. While the resort may have built its reputation on classic summertime activities like hiking, biking, and fishing, what the future holds in store is even more exciting thanks to the addition of a new on-mountain adventure area called the Lost Forest
. Here’s a look at the attractions that lie within the Lost Forest at the top of the Elk Camp gondola.
Rugged Ascent Climbing Wall
Complete with custom auto-belays that leave no room for human error, the Rugged Ascent climbing wall is lined with dozens of thrilling climbing routes. Strap on a harness to push your limits on a challenging new route or cruise up an easy one and check out the view from the top.
Canopy Run Zipline
Throw on a helmet and harness before flying through a network of ziplines and tree-top platforms that make up the Canopy Run Zipline experience. Get a birds-eye view of the forest and feel your adrenaline peak during this unique three-hour-long guided adventure.
Treeline Trail Challenge Course
Afraid of heights? Then the Treeline Trail Challenge Course might not be for you. However, if you want to challenge that fear or love the feeling of being on the edge, this is an experience not to be missed. At 40’ off the ground, this ropes course guides participants through five different paths, each of which has its own unique level of difficulty and obstacles to navigate.
Breathtaker Alpine Coaster
The Breathtaker Alpine Coaster
is ready for its summer debut after a winter of exciting thousands of riders. This excitement inducing adventure hurtles riders through the alpine landscape on aerodynamic coaster cars built for speed. Enjoy a ride alone or with a friend.
Rounding out the activities within the Lost Forest are the Ariel Approach Disc Golf course, Trout Hook kids fishing, and Timber Territory paintball. Those looking for more relaxing experiences can enjoy the mountain atmosphere and views available at Rayburn’s Pond Gathering Deck and the Maroon View Gathering Deck.
