Snowmass Ski Area’s summer offerings have expanded and will debut Friday. There will be bike demos for visitors to explore the now 50 miles of cross-country trails.
A new, 5-mile trail will descend from the top of the Elk Camp chairlift and will open in phases. The upper section, dubbed “French Press,” will open in mid-summer, and the lower portion, yet to be named, will debut in late fall.
The park is in the second year of a multi-year expansion project. That also includes another short expert trail, opening later this summer.
The Government and Burnt Mountain trails opened yesterday following spring wildlife closures.
