Skier in powder

Skiing at Hotel Jerome

Four legendary mountains, one unforgettable destination


Amazing powder, backcountry adventures, culture, shopping and dining come together for the world’s best mountain town. But at the heart of it all is the stellar skiing that awaits on four incredible mountains—Aspen, Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass—accessible on one lift ticket. More than 5,500 acres of skiable terrain, 300 miles of trails, the largest vertical descent of any resort in North America and views over the valley to the snow-covered Maroon Bells will remind you time and again: this is Colorado skiing at its finest.

Skier in powder

Ski fresh powder on the backside of Aspen Mountain

Board a snowcat for an unrivalled powder experience through prime ungroomed wilderness, covering an average of 1,500 acres of open bowls, meadows and glades on the back of Aspen Mountain. Two guides and a driver lead each 12-person snowcat group, choosing terrain based on daily snow conditions and the group’s experience. Take a lunch break in a cozy wood-stove heated cabin.
Ski the original trails of Snowmass

In the early 1960s, a group of lucky locals were hired to scout the potential of a future ski resort on the vast flanks of Baldy Mountain—and ultimately design and cut its ski runs. “They were all passionate skiers, and that makes a difference,” says Snowmass Ski Area General Manager Steve Sewell. In 2018, Snowmass celebrated 50 years by marking the 25 original trails from the resort’s inaugural 1967-’68 season. Imagine the excitement of an earlier-era skier embarking on the carefully designed runs—or strike out on your own to explore Aspen, Highlands and Buttermilk.
