Aspen Snowmass is not just one mountain – it’s Snowmass, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Aspen Mountain. It’s almost unfair. Four mountains with more bowls, chutes, cliffs, gullies, glades and wide-open groomers than you can possibly handle. And that’s just the in-bounds.
But before Aspen Snowmass became one of the world’s best-known winter resorts, it was a mining camp, a town, a community. It was a place to work hard so you could play even harder. A place people dreamed about, then devised ways to get even further, higher and deeper in these mountains. This passion is what shaped the Aspen we know today.
While the media widely talk up the glitz and glamour of Aspen, the core product is often overlooked. Aspen Snowmass is four mountains on one lift ticket. 332 trails and runs up to 8 km long. And no lift lines. Fresh and dry Colorado powder snow like you’ve always dreamed about covering 2300 hectares of skiable terrain with an annual snowfall of 300 inches (762 cm) and 40 lifts to get you to the top. And at the end of the ski day, 120 restaurants and bars beckon. This is the real Aspen – and it’s the Aspen we’ve been showing people for over 23 years.
