Snowmass Village

Located 200 miles southwest of Denver and 130 miles east of Grand Junction, Snowmass Village is at the north end of the Brush Creek valley within the Roaring Fork valley which stretches from Glenwood Springs in the northwest end to Aspen on the southeast end and is surrounded by the White River National Forest. Snowmass Village encompasses 25.6 square miles and is at the base of the Snwomass Ski Area.

Long before miners discovered silver near Aspen and skiers discovered white gold powder on Snowmass Mountain, members of the Ute tribe inhabited the Brush Creek valley. The Utes originally called the mountain “Cold Woman” because it was often hidden by clouds and was believed to be the source of bad weather. As the nearby Aspen mines grew, settlement encroached and by the 1890s ranchers and homesteaders began to move in. Today vestiges of this ranching heritage can be found throughout Snowmass Village, from the Little Red School house built in 1894 that is still used as a school today, to the Anderson Ranch Arts Center built in the historic Hoaglund ranch buildings.

In 2010 the accidental discovery by a bulldozer operator of fossilized elements of a Pleistocene ecosystem in the ice age lakebed at the Ziegler Reservoir (now fondly referred to as the Snowmastadon site) put Snowmass prominently on the paleontological map of North America.
