Snowmass is a prominent, isolated peak that rises to the west of beautiful Snowmass Lake. Its eastern flank holds an immense snowfield, which descends to a snow-filled basin above the lake. The striking beauty of this peak is accentuated by its remoteness. Snowmass Lake, where base camp is typically established, is an 8.5 mile trek, the longest approach for any of Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks.
