Experience Snowmass Mountain During the Winter Season
Terry McEnany, MD, built a successful career as a thoracic and cardiovascular surgeon over the course of 25 years. Most recently, Terry McEnany provided ski lessons in his role as instructor at the Ski and Snowboard Schools of Aspen in Colorado.
Located within driving distance of four separate mountains, Colorado's Aspen Snowmass ski resort offers a wide variety of winter activities to its guests. Snowmass is the largest and most popular of all the mountains, featuring a vertical rise of more than 4,400 feet and an excess of 3,300 skiable acres during the winter season. While on the mountain, both children and adults can take ski lessons, dine at a number of restaurants, or ride any of Snowmass’s 94 trails. Spanning 150 miles, these trails accommodate skiers from beginning to expert levels, though the majority of trails cater to intermediate skiers.
Those who do not wish to ski can also experience Snowmass throughout the winter season. Between November and April, the ski resort hosts a number of guest activities on the mountain, including its weekly Ullr Nights party at Elk Camp. Guests can also go tubing on Snowmass or attend the resort’s annual Thanksjibbing event.
