THE LOST FOREST AT SNOWMASS
FAMILY-FRIENDLY ACTIVITIES AT ELK CAMP
Our winter guests know and love Snowmass's family-friendly appeal, but now our summer guests will also flock to the top of the Elk Camp Gondola to experience the new Lost Forest.
The Lost Forest opened in summer 2018 and was an instant success, inviting adventure-seekers to lose themselves amid a secret world of zip lines, biking trails, climbing walls, disc golf courses, rope challenges, and a thrilling alpine coaster.
