Town Council Adopts Goals

2019 Strategic Goals Re-Affirm Town Priorities

On April 15th, the Town Council unanimously adopted their 2019 strategic goals, which reaffirmed the Town's commitment of being a responsible steward of our community character, the environment, and the Town's values to remain a thriving, charming, fun, resilient, safe, and emotionally connected community.

Because the Mayor and Town Council members were all re-elected in 2018, this year's goal setting process offered a unique opportunity to evaluate previous goals, measure progress, and re-affirm Town priorities. The resulting strategic goals are then used as guides for Town staff to develop and implement policies and projects. 

2019 Strategic Goal Areas:

  • Affordable Workforce and Senior Housing

  • Community Engagement 
  • Community Building
  • Safety, Connectivity, Parking and Transit
  • A Continued Commitment to Resiliency
  • Regionalism
You can read each of these goal areas in detail by following the link below.
NDV Winter Sports Clinic

Thank You.

Community Stepped Up for NDV Winter Sports Clinic

The Snowmass Village community was once again the gracious host to over 400 disabled veterans, and we welcomed them with open arms. Not only did the community raise more than $16,000 to help support individual expenses for participants, but countless volunteer hours made the event a success the world class service that the veterans deserve. 

In 7 days the Westin and volunteers served 9,268 delicious meals and moved a few hundred thousand pounds of luggage, and it wouldn't have been possible without the support of all who volunteered. You can find a thank you letter from the Westin to the community by following the link below. 

To top it off, the Girl Scouts of Colorado donated over 30,000 boxes of cookies to the National Disabled Veterans, and over 10,000 boxes were brought to the Winter Sports Clinic and distributed by local Girl Scout troops 17959 from Carbondale and 15015 of Basalt. 

Thank you for your contributions, whatever they may have been, and we look forward to doing it all over again next year. 

Thank you from the Westin...

Trail Conditions

Trail Conditions and Closures

Burnt Mountain Closed Thursday, April 25th

Be sure to check the latest trail conditions and closures as the weather warms up this spring. Several local trails are now closed to protect sensitive wildlife habitat, and we ask that you respect the following closures to give wildlife a much needed break after a long winter.

Winter / Spring Season Closures:

  • Rim Trail North, including the North Mesa Equestrian Trail: December 1 - May 16
  • Sky Mountain Park trails: December 1 - May 16
  • Seven Star Trail: December 1 - May 16
  • Tom Blake: April 25 - June 21
  • Sequel / Anaerobic Nightmare: April 25 - June 21
  • Government - Burnt Mountain: May 15 - June 21
The south portion of the Rim Trail, Highline, and Lowline trails are open year-round. 

Top 3 Reasons to Respect Trail Closures:

1. Wildlife need a break
Local elk populations have a rough winter and enter the spring with high calorie demands. Combine that with increased recreational pressures, and it becomes even more critical that we give wildlife some time to recoup.

2. Help keep the elk population from dwindling
We’re fortunate enough to live in an area where humans and wildlife can (hopefully) co-habitate successfully. We are able to recreate in the area for the other 10 months of the year, and you’re likely to see wildlife here that rivals many of our national parks. For just 2 months, we ask that you give them a break and let them take the area for themselves. Trail closures help elk calve undisturbed, and forage and nurse in peace which means better birth rates, more successful calves, and a stronger population.  

3. You could face some big fines
All closed trails are clearly marked with gates and signage, so there’s really no excuse to enter a closed trail—and violators will be fined. Fines can range from $100 to a maximum of $5,000, and we’re sure there are plenty of other things you’d rather do with that money.
