Skico expands its terrain on Burnt Mountain

SNOWMASS VILLAGE - Snowmass will add 230 acres of new terrain on Burnt Mountain this season, bringing total skiable acreage to 3,362 acres, the second largest ski area in Colorado. The terrain on Burnt Mountain features rolling, low-angle meadows, glades and views into the valleys between Snowmass and Buttermilk.

Crews will glade approximately 6.5 acres of terrain to link a series of existing meadows. The area will be marked as advanced black-diamond level of difficulty primarily because of the egress trail from the area returning to the bottom of the Two Creeks lift.

The area is located to the east of the Longshot run, and is accessible by a short hike from the top of the Elk Camp lift. It is scheduled to open before the Christmas holidays.
