Aspen : Ski Resort Feature

When it comes to winter destinations - from fantastic skiing and riding, to cultural activities, great shopping, exciting nightlife and one-of-a-kind restaurants - Aspen/Snowmass offers the complete vacation experience.
It's not just one mountain. It's Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk. Decide which mountain fits your passion. Four choices and nearly 5,000 acres, on one lift pass.
Snowmass: With 3,100 acres of cruisers, steeps, terrain parks and halfpipes, splayed upon a Rocky Mountain massif with a vertical drop of 1,343 meters. Snowmass defies belief. So many runs, so much variety, and all of it fun for the entire family.
Aspen Mountain: Rising out of the heart of downtown Aspen and famous for its steeps, bumps and incredible views, Aspen Mountain and its double-black and tree runs are fun for skiers and snowboarders alike.
Aspen Highlands: Known as the locals' favourite mountain, Aspen Highlands features extreme terrain, groomed cruisers and breathtaking views of the Maroon Bells. For the ultimate ski/snowboarding experience, drop into Highland Bowl. It's as much about the hike up as the trip down.
Buttermilk: Home of the ESPN Winter X Games through to 2010 (for an unprecedented nine consecutive years!), Buttermilk is also a premier mountain for beginners. While experts frolic in the terrain park, the rest of the family can cruise on the wide, rolling trails.
