A popular winter resort location for skiing and snowboarding, the town is best known as the location of the Snowmass ski area, the largest of the four nearby ski areas operated collectively as Aspen/Snowmass; however, in 2010 the accidental discovery by a bulldozer operator of fossilized elements of a Pleistocene ecosystem in the ice age lakebed at the Ziegler Reservoir put Snowmass prominently on the paleontological map of North America.
