In the summer issue of the 1981 Snowmass Affairs, many activities were offered in detail in the Guide to Summer, including guided hikes, the “parcours, a trail patterned after the famous Swiss jogging course, golf, tennis, jeep tours, whitewater raft trips, swimming and of course, horseback riding with hayride cookouts and the professional Rodeo to end a perfect summer evening in the Colorado Western Mountains.”
