Snowmass (1904, 6,899 feet), initially a railroad siding with live-stock pens, became a post office community in 1904. The drive up scenic Snowmass Creek Valley passes scattered ranch houses, among them many old and new examples of log construction. In a spectacular mountain setting known for lavish, worldly resorts, Snowmass offers three otherworldly retreats built by idealists looking to better the human environment.
