Aspen Snowmass ski resort encompasses four ski areas: Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands & Buttermilk and two elevated communities: Aspen and Snowmass. The resort unifies people from all walks of life, offering expansive
terrain for every type of skier and rider. However, the experience is more meaningful than just getting people up and down ski runs. The Aspen Skiing Company is committed to being socially responsible and believes in doing the
right thing by the community, its’ visitors and the environment; a coined termed “The Aspen Way”. Aspen Snowmass is the original modern mountain resort: heart-pounding, mind opening and spirit refreshing. It is the quintessential
story of skiing in North America; a cultural hub, an intellectual center, a training mecca, a capital of cuisine, and a bastion of the arts. In short, it is a place like no other creating the ultimate guest experience by pairing world class standards with small town charm.
The identities of Aspen ski resort and the city of Aspen are intertwined. Both are rooted in a silver mining past, and both are forever moving forward in the pursuit of pleasure today. For visitors, joy can come in many forms here: excellent skiing and riding on the mountain, followed by world-class dining and shopping in town. When it comes to terrain, Aspen skiing is unlike any other ski mountain in America, offering an abundance of options.
A dash down the Face of Bell is a rite of passage for expert skiers the world over, while those in search of groomers can cruise down the same runs that hosted the 2017 Audi FIS World Cup Finals. When the Aspen skiing day is done, watch the action on the mountain fade into town at Ajax Tavern, the iconic après ski spot at the base of the Silver Queen Gondola.
Situated in between Aspen Mountain and Buttermilk, you will find a true original – Aspen Highlands. Rising 3,635 feet (1,108 meters) from the base area, this narrow ridge presents
a dramatic reveal as you ride the chairlift up — blue and black runs dive down its flanks, while glimpses of the iconic Maroon Bells in the distance leave little doubt that you are on
the one-and-only Aspen Highlands. Once you are at the top, you’ll find the real reason whythis mountain is adored by locals: the hike-in terrain of Highland Bowl, rising another 717
feet above the last lift. Over at the newly renovated Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro — where the après ski scene goes into overdrive around 2 pm — rub elbows with an eclectic mix of locals,international skiers and the occasional celeb over pots of steaming fondue and glasses of champagne.
Represents the quieter side of Aspen Snowmass. Here you can enjoy excellent beginner terrain, the smooth but steep advanced runs of the Tiehack area, and the amazing scenery of nearby Pyramid Peak. Try some new tricks at the Ski and
Snowboard Schools, Terrain Park or the Buttermilk Terrain Park, which despite its international fame (courtesy of the X Games Aspen) still has a mellow vibe to it. At Buttermilk, lift lines are a rare sight, allowing you to enjoy as many turns as you can squeeze into a day. At the base, the new Hideout — an innovative learning center for children — invites young kids to find their way into the sport of skiing through gentle slopes and interactive play areas.
