Our Favorite Ski Mountains in Aspen

Skiing

With four mountains to choose from, we want you to experience them all through us and decide which mountains suit your needs best on any given day. Aspen Highlands is our church – a please to get away from the crowds and ski some of the steepest and deepest terrain in the valley. We love Aspen Mountain on a powder day so we can do gondola laps until our legs give out. Snowmass is our place to go on gorgeous days with family or with a pack of friends, and Tiehack/Buttermilk we go to for our skin + ski days, or to learn a new sport.
