Aspen/Snowmass, with two towns, four mountains (Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk), 4,993 acres, 42 lifts, 335 trails and the steepest vertical drop in Colorado, offers the best terrain and greatest variety of Rocky Mountain skiing at a single resort.

Aspen Highlands is known as the locals' favorite mountain. Located just three miles from downtown Aspen and accessible by free shuttle, Aspen Highlands' mountain features stunning views of the world-famous Maroon Bells while you ski within the White River National Forest.

Aspen Highlands continues to challenge the skills and courage of snowboarders and skiers, from beginner to expert. Steeps, glades and powder stashes drop from the sides of long, groomed cruisers. What the mountain lacks in the park/pipe department, it makes up for ten fold in the vertical area. Known for its amazing bowls, Aspen Highlands is the place for big-mountain skiing in its world famous Highland Bowl, Olympic Bowl and Steeplechase. "Where else do you think our Olympic medalists hang out?" the website boasts.

Enjoy the wide-open runs or, for the ultimate ski/snowboarding experience, step it up a level with a snowcat ride to the first access gate then continue to hike to the renowned descents of the recently expanded Highland Bowl.
