The ultimate ski destination for the rich and famous, Aspen is one of those iconic places that has been serving up the goods for over 70 years. In that time, it’s evolved into four separate ski areas: Aspen (also known as Ajax Mountain), Snowmass, Buttermilk, and Aspen Highlands. They’re all linked by a shuttle system, accessible with a single ticket, and clustered around one of the greatest ski towns in the world. There’s more than 5,550 ac of incredible skiable terrain between the four ski areas but if we had to pick one, it would be Aspen Highlands which has fewer crowds than Aspen Mountain and Snowmass. You’ll find some of Colorado’s best expert in-bounds terrain here with the Highland Bowl offering 1,040 ac of in-bounds backcountry at the high-elevation of 12,392 ft! If you’re after intermediate options, though, check out Buttermilk and Snowmass. While the terrain here at Aspen is top-notch, the snowfall can be unreliable compared to other resorts. When it’s thin, the steeps can be rocky so early season visits can be a gamble.
Aspen is the king of après ski with endless dining and nightlife options! Hit up the bar at Ajax Tavern for live DJs or check out Wintersköl, a family friendly festival with ice carvings and fireworks. Powderhounds should go see the gnarly tricks at the annual Winter X Games! For all the glitz and glamour that brings celebrities here, Aspen does come at a price, especially if you want to stay closer to the slopes. You might have to splurge a bit more at Aspen, but if you can find the means to visit Aspen, you won’t regret it!
