The four mountains of Aspen/Snowmass comprise one of the best-known ski resorts in the world.
Snowmass is the largest of the four with over 3,000 acres of skiable terrain - so much variety – cruisers, steeps, glades, off-piste, terrain parks, super pipe and the longest lift-served vertical rise in the US. The new Sheer Bliss high speed quad lift provides a very convenient ride to the top of Snowmass. Most of the lifts have built-in maps to review while you ride, too.
Rising out of the heart of downtown Aspen and famous for its steeps, bumps and incredible views, Aspen Mountain and its double-black and tree runs are fun for skiers and snowboarders alike.
Known as the locals’ favorite mountain, Aspen Highlands features extreme terrain, groomed cruisers and breathtaking views. For the ultimate ski or snowboarding experience, hike up and drop into Highland Bowl.
Buttermilk also remains North America’s best family learning center. While experts frolic in the new 22 foot Olympic sized half pipe and terrain park, the rest of us can cruise on the wide, rolling trails. All of these mountains are connected by a free shuttle service.
Take the free, 20 minute shuttle to chic Aspen to enjoy the hard to beat selection and quality of shops and restaurants. Entertainment options abound, both in Snowmass and in Aspen. While Snowmass is smaller, it has added to its new base village with 5 new restaurants and bars, making a total of 25 in Snowmass Village.
While in Snowmass we will be staying slope side in 2-bedroom/2-bath condos at the Top of the Village. The Top of the Village is surrounded on three sides by forests and mountains and reigns as one of the very finest ski-in/ski-out properties in Snowmass. With some units you can literally ski right onto the slopes! Others are just a short walk out your door to the slopes.You’ll also be within walking distance of Snowmass Village shopping, restaurants and activities. The condos have a washer & dryer in each unit and the elevators give your tired legs a break when you come home from a full day of skiing.
