Ahhh, the view… Ahhh, the snow… and now it’s also “ahhh, the village”! Congratulations to Snowmass, CO, which made it onto National Geographic’s list of “The 20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2017.”

The article mentions Snowmass’s humble beginnings in the ’60s – five lifts and $6.50 for a day pass. Those were the days! The good news:
“But there’s still a way to purchase a lift ticket in Snowmass for $6.50. For one day only on December 15, 2017, tickets revert back to their original sticker price to kick off a season-long celebration marking five decades of powder.”
And there’s dog sledding – what more can one ask for?!?
“Off the mountain, The Krabloonik is one of Snowmass Village’s most unique experiences. The establishment, now under new ownership, is the largest dog sledding operation in the continental U.S., and visitors can not only meet the pups and go for a sled ride, but also enjoy a meal afterward in a picturesque log cabin.”
