Aspen is considered by many as having the world’s best skiing, and is ranked as the no. 3 resort for 2022 by the readers of Ski Magazine. It sits high on the list for terrain, challenge, service, weather, on-mountain food, dining, apres-ski, and off-mountain activities. Aspen is a unique blend of history, culture, festivals, sports, restaurants, and music which makes this famous Colorado, Rocky Mountain town a very special world-class resort. And if you also enjoy people watching, celebrities flock to Aspen. Your five-day lift ticket also includes access to Snowmass, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk.
Have you ever wanted to ski up to four ski resorts in one week without packing a bag? Now is your chance as Ski Magazine's Readers' poll ranks Aspen Snowmass (Aspen, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk) number three for 2022!
Aspen (Ajax) Mountain packs a big punch in its 675 acres. It has 76 trails packed into a narrow area that has a vertical drop of 3,267 ft (996m). Aspen Mountain has no beginner runs at all, and is well known for the many blue cruisers for strong intermediates, and the black diamond steeps and bumps. The terrain split is 48% intermediate, 26% advanced, and 26% expert. Beginners head to Buttermilk.
Snowmass has come into its own. It is not only a cruiser’s paradise, but in the Hanging Valley area where inbound back country skiing is permitted, there are enough “cornices, glades, cliffs, bumps, and jumps to make an X-Games producer swallow his cell phone.” Skiers won’t be bored with over 3,300 acres and a 12,510 foot summit that offers a major vertical rise.
Aspen Highlands' major asset is the Western Slope weather that produces beautiful powder during the night and gorgeous blue-sky days to ski it. The resort is noted for its "superbly efficient lift system". Yet, this mountain is uncrowded with fewer skiers than nearby Buttermilk. Buttermilk, well known for its family programs and learning center, is a haven for intermediate skiers and boarders looking for groomers!
