With the abundance of water & wildlife, the Elk Mountains were the summer hunting grounds of the Ute Indians. Early settlers saw the rich grassland and wildflower meadows of Brush Creek Village during the 1890s as great ranch land for their cattle. By 1894 a one-room schoolhouse was built, currently used as a preschool.

William Janss, a California developer, and former ski racer who envisioned a ski resort, purchased the majority of the land at its base during the 1858s. Skiing in Snowmass began with snowcat powder tours on Big Burn and Sam's Knob. Snowmass Village matured into a ski resort and a great attraction for arts and culture. In 1966 resort developers requested Paul Soldner, ceramicist select a ranch from the acquired land to use for artisans and their students. The Anderson family sheep ranch is today Anderson Ranch Arts Center, its original log barns augmented by new residences.

More than a mountain, known for the Snowmass Wine & Jazz Festival, Chili Pepper & Brew Fest, the Snowmass Wellness Experience, Octoberfest and Aspen/Snowmass Ride for the Cure. Take a ride on a hot-air balloon through the scenic mountains, raft or swim in the Roaring Fork River, visit the Snowmass Rodeo, dine at Krabloonik after a dogsled ride. Snowmass is a destination for connoisseurs of all levels. Surrounded by scenic wilderness, Snowmass also connects to groomed Nordic trails, over 40 miles of hiking and biking trails and boast two eighteen hole golf courses.

Mountain Living is being redefined in Snowmass Village. Related WestPac, a joint venture partnership between Related Companies and Westpac Investments Colorado LLC., initiated the groundbreaking of 32 hectares of highly anticipated residential opportunities amidst world-class hotels, signature retail, restaurants and entertainment amenities in March of 2007.
