Aspen Snowmass is a place where locals and visitors alike come together to enjoy the outdoors, culture, adventure and glamour. Four ski mountains on one lift ticket (within a radius of 14 km) offer thrills when you need a rush and scenic groomers when you need to unwind. Off the slopes, the action continues with world-class après ski, dining, arts, and events.

PLAY

Spend an hour exploring Highland Bowl, a day at Buttermilk, a week at Aspen Mountain, or a whole season discovering Snowmass – no matter how long you stay, you will never have the same experience twice. Aspen Snowmass is more than just four mountains. It is a destination for living well. It’s a place where the mountains challenge you by day, and a vibrant cultural scene greets you at night.
