Snowmass offers 3,300-plus skiable acres and intermediate trails make up about half of that total acreage. Intermediates truly have an abundance of pristine blue groomers and playful blue glades at Snowmass.
Nearly half (about 47 percent) of Snowmass' terrain is marked as blue square, making Snowmass a true intermediate skiing paradise. The best Snowmass intermediate skiing is extremely accessible from three main chairlifts. These include Elk Camp, Alpine Springs and The Big Burn.
Elk Camp chairlift not only provides unadulterated views of Maroon Creek Valley, but access to a collection of fun, rolling blue runs, including one of the longest runs in North America, Long Shot, which affords more than five miles of intermediate skiing. To access the trail, there's a short, easy hike, but the small effort is well worth it! If you'd rather not hike, head looker’s right off the Elk Camp chair. There, you'll find plenty of rolling Snowmass intermediate terrain, like Sandy Park and Grey Wolf.
The Alpine Springs chairlift provides intermediates with excellent afternoon skiing, because that area typically gets groomed in the morning and after lunch, too. The rolling slopes of Naked Lady run are top-notch for lapping the Alpine Springs chairlift.
The Big Burn high-speed quad accesses some of Snowmass' best intermediate terrain. Big Burn accesses an abundance of long, world-lass groomers and several awesome intermediate tree runs. It's easy to spend a whole day skiing the Big Burn chair without ever tiring of playful, zippy runs like Sneaky’s or Dallas Freeway. In fact, you could practically spend a whole day in the Big Burn area and ski a different run every lap.
