Tried on the skiing in the snowmass last week of season 05 (first week of april). Must say that snow quality and snow depth were far beyond expectation while the mountain itself was a bit below, if compared to the Alps, say.
The accommodation in Snowmass can not be anything but the "neighbor with the hill" which is super! and the square has a very cozy city feel with shops and restaurants. In my eyes, snowmass is still a place for family skiing and I could not really find myself right, even though I mostly took offpiste, thanking my guide all week, I still think I got a lot of skiing and nice deliveries and most of that There is an experience to find if you go out behind the mountain. There are many "gold grains", just to clean them !!
Other positive criticisms are smooth lift queens and beautiful seasons from all sorts of places in the world, there is also a Swedish crazy photographer from Falun who worked there since he was 19 bast! so some kind of attraction is there even if we do not talk top skiing !!

- family skiing
- no shyssta peaks to look out over
- difficult to get skiing "in addition to the usual"

+ high snow quality and snow depth throughout the season
+ short queues and good lifting systems
+ bright but small town
+ top quality customer service
+ relaxed and nice people (unlike Aspen)

(recommending guided tours, Rhett Armstrong is the snowmass veteran)

Was here the winter 04/05. Incredibly good skiing. The Cirque is the place where you will find amazing offpiste full with deep "ChampagnePowder". The cool thing about Snowmass is that there are seldom liftköer, not many others who go offpiste. Then it's only 10 minutes to Aspen, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk. If you go here, you have to go to Aspen Highlands, they have the best offpiste of the four systems, and there are the locals.
Be sure to go here when the dollar is low !!
