Aspen Snowmass, Colorado

Aspen Snowmass is made up of four separate ski resorts that are within a 15km radius of each other: Aspen Mountain (aka Ajax); Snowmass; Aspen Highlands; and Buttermilk Mountain. Aspen Mountain looms above the town of Aspen, Snowmass is a 20-minute drive from downtown Aspen, and Buttermilk and Aspen Highlands are only a few minutes away from town. With so much variety, it’s a good thing all four mountains can be skied on one lift ticket. Although the resorts are not interconnected, a free shuttle runs between Aspen and the ski resorts.

Experience the extraordinary town of Aspen which features the kinds of restaurants, nightclubs, shops and art galleries that most cities in the world, let alone mountain towns, would envy.

No day is the same at Snowmass. In fact, you can go your entire trip skiing and riding its terrain without covering the same ground twice. Snowmass has trails to suit all abilities, from expert terrain of Burnt Mountain Glades, High Alpine and the Cirque to long blue groomers and impressive beginner facilities.

Aspen Mountain
At Aspen Mountain you can ski down the same runs that have hosted World Cup races, ride through gladed powder stashes and finish off with a toast at the world's first on-mountain champagne bar, Oasis Champagne Bar. And all of this is just steps away from downtown Aspen.

Aspen Highland
Aspen Highlands is a local favourite as the slopes are uncrowded. Hike the ridge to Highland Bowl for the run of the day. Views over the valley to the snow-covered Maroon Bells are magical.

Buttermilk is best known around the world for being home to the Winter X Games and the Red Bull Double Pipe event. The mountain is an icon for freestyle riders and skiers. But the mountain is also ideal for beginners and families, boasting uncrowded beginner terrain and The Hideout, an innovative learning centre for young skiers.
