In the meantime, guests can stay either at the condominiums just across from the Club or elsewhere in Snowmass.

All of the club's extraordinary recreational amenities remain operational. Its year-round facilities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, two heated outdoor swimming pools, and two indoor tennis courts. In summer, guests have an 18-hole golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay, 9 outdoor tennis courts, and access to mountain bikes. In winter, shuttles deliver skiers to the downhill slopes of any of the region's four areas. Cross-country skiers have 30 kilometers of groomed track virtually right outside the lodge door.

With a large local tennis membership, the Snowmass Club remains one of the premier places to play in the valley. Although the courts are open to the general public, for obvious reasons members and those staying in the Residences have first priority—a bigger issue for the indoor courts, especially in winter. With so many courts outdoors, however, non-members can generally be accommodated. The weekly calendar lists a variety of activities, including clinics, power drills, men's and women's round robins, a variety of junior clinics and summer junior camps, and private lessons. There is also a large summer tournament. Given the state of the lodging, even more of these activities than usual are geared to local members; however, the staff has always been good about integrating guests into the whatever is going on.

Tennis Staff. Kevin Arias took over as head pro in the summer of 2017. He is a member of a notable tennis-playing family—his father Antonio was instrumental in developing the modern power tennis game and his brother Jimmy was a Top 5 ATP Tour player. Kevin himself played No. 1 for the University of Arkansas and went on to be ranked in singles and doubles on the ATP Tour. But he turned to coaching, working with such Andre Agassi, Monica Seles, and Bethany Mattek-Sands.
Tennis Programs. He inherits a mature program but has added exhibitions on Monday nights with top college players, local pros, and himself and hopes to bring in his brother Jimmy for clinics and exhibitions.
Courts & Fees. There are 9 outdoor hard courts and two indoor hard courts. Court fees: Outdoor, $16/hour for guests, $20/hour for public; Indoor, $24/hour for guests. Non-Prime Time (1-7 p.m.), $12/hour.
Altitude Caveat: The Snowmass Clubs stands at just over 8,000 feet above sea level. High-altitude balls can only partly compensate for the elevation difference (you'll need to prepare early for every shot). More important, the danger of sunburn is extreme, so use plenty of sunblock and wear a hat or visor.

Here's what others have had to say about Snowmass Club.

  • 4½-Ball Rating "I live in the Roaring Fork Valley about 15 minutes from the Snowmass Lodge and Club. My kids have been participating in the junior tennis clinics for the past two years and it is outstanding. The class ratio in the winter is 5 to 1 and in the summer 12-1. Great instruction with Jeff and Sean overseen by Gayle Goodwin. I myself have participated in several of the adult clinics and tennis mixers and they are fantastic! Overall a great place for tennis families with instruction and mixers for everyone."—D.E., Int., April 2012
