DAV Winter Sports

Help Support our Veterans

The DAV Winter Sports Clinic Returns March 26th

It’s almost that time of year again. In just a couple of short months, Snowmass Village will once again be the gracious host to the National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic. This event has been hosted in Snowmass Village annually for 17 years straight, and it wouldn’t be possible without the support of our local community. Not only do our merchants, lodges, and restaurants show these veterans to a world-class experience, but together, we raised nearly $20,000 last year to support lodging and airfare for individual veterans - estimated at $1,600 per individual. Now, we hope to support even more veterans, and we need your help.

We ask you to please help sponsor one or more of these recently disabled vets in whole or in part. Any size donation makes a difference, and it is simple and secure with the help of Alpine Bank. Learn how to donate by following the link below. 
GIS Portal

GIS & Mapping Portal Now Available

View building records and make custom maps online.

Snowmass Village maps have always consisted of fun opportunities (e.g. open space, trails, ski runs, etc.) but who says maps can't consist of much more? Now, thanks to the Town's GIS Portal, countless informational layers are accessible to you.

Using the latest technology, the Town has digitized property records and tied them to their corresponding parcels. This allows you to view records and information for individual properties with just a few clicks. The Town also hopes to deploy many other useful maps for your use, such as; interactive public parking information, affordable housing units, and Village Shuttle bus stop locations.

Stay tuned for tutorials on how to get the most from the portal. In the meantime, you can view the GIS Portal and take a look for yourself at

This is a $25 increase from last year’s $484.00 annual rate, or approximately an additional $2.07 per month.
