Where is our Aspen Snowmass resort lodging?
The city of Aspen is tucked in the White River National Forest, just under a four-hour drive from both Denver and Boulder. Its Aspen Snowmass ski complex is renowned as a legendary winter playground, and includes four unique areas: Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass. You’ll find some of the best ski terrain in the U.S. here, and not to mention incredible outdoor access in the warmer months. Our Aspen Snowmass resort lodging is peppered throughout the area for easy access to this beloved place, plus they boast incredible amenities.
Winter sports in Aspen Snowmass
There are so many opportunities to find your perfect ski location. Passes range from individual mountain passes to season-long tickets to all four of the mountains, so you can enjoy a tailor-made getaway. Each mountain offers something unique for every skier or snowboarder.
Are you a first-time rider or traveling with children? Buttermilk Mountain is known for its gentle slopes and the Hideout, a kids’ learning center. It’s also the famed site of several Winter X Games, and the park here is a great place for free skiers and boarders to test their skills.
Or maybe you’re looking for more of a challenge. Aspen Mountain has hosted the World Cup Finals and consists of intermediate and advanced terrain, featuring steep descents and high-speed turns. Or you can head to Aspen Highlands, known as a “local’s mountain,” where you’ll find comparably less crowds and more challenging terrain.
As the largest of the four mountains, Snowmass has earned the nickname “Snowmassive.” It’s no surprise why, with over 3,000 acres of skiable terrain and three parks for adrenaline junkies. You’ll find plenty of options for all skill levels here, as you explore 91 downhill trails that span a total of 150 miles ranging from beginner to expert. This family-friendly area boasts multiple restaurants peppered around the mountain atop various gondolas and lifts, for a meal with an unforgettable view. Some even offer live events and music.
