Ease of Access

Aspen started life as a silver mining town and has evolved over 130 years or so into a year round mountain holiday destination. Its core retains a heritage feel yet a modern day Aspen ski holiday is home to dozens of restaurants and bars giving it a reputation as one of the brighter apres ski resorts in North America.

Aspens ski resort's appeal extends to the slopes too, with 5,300 acres of terrain across four mountains offering something for every skier and boarder to enjoy. Dominating the town on your ski holiday to Aspen are the slopes of Aspen Mountain, lifts departing from and trails returning to the edge of the resort. Here a mix of slopes awaits, including some tough blacks and glade runs.

Snowmass is the largest of the four mountains and offers a great variety of slopes. Families and mixed ability parties will find the mountain a joy. As with all of Aspen’s resorts that you will discover on your ski holiday to Aspen, the grooming is marvellous, so novices and intermediates who love to cruise will have a blast. With the US’s greatest vertical at 1,340m and a number of tough glades and chutes advanced skiers and boarders will also find much to enjoy. Snowmass also has three terrain parks and a super pipe.

A few minutes by shuttle bus away is Buttermilk, which is a great place for beginners, with some excellent learning terrain. Buttermilk also attracts those that relish terrain parks, having often hosted the Winter X Games on its 3km long park, which has 100+ features and a massive super-pipe.

Nearby Aspen Highlands has some delightful tree-lined trails, but it is best known for the infamous Highlands Bowl, where dramatic off-piste plunging down from a narrow ridge – experts need to hike up the ridge, but are rewarded by some challenging steeps.

An Aspen ski holiday has a high end reputation, but it is more than accessible on a budget too. As it existed before the coming of ski holidays there is a true town feel to the place, with regular shops alongside the gift stores and boutiques. There are plenty of choices when it comes to eating and drinking, from casual dining to exclusive restaurants, traditional pubs to sleek bars.

Whilst many visitors will choose to stay in Aspen, Snowmass has a growing, purpose built resort village and offers several slopeside lodging options. Nightlife is quieter but there are still several restaurants to choose from and is great for families. You can also easily access the main nightlife and après ski in Aspen town. No matter where you stay on your Aspen ski holiday all 4 mountains are accessible using the FREE shuttle buses and the service between Aspen and Snowmass village operates until 2am.

Activities at Aspen Snowmass Ski Resort

Beyond the art galleries and boutiques, Aspen Recreation Centre has a pool, skating and other activities. Snowmass has a recreation centre with outdoor pools and other facilities. You can also relax at one of several spas. There are several cinemas and arts venues in town. Amongst other diversions off the slopes, you can ride a Snow-cat to dinner in the mountains or take a guided snow-shoe tour.
