Aspen/Snowmass is not one single ski resort, but rather a family of four: Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, and Snowmass. Four adjacent mountains looming above Snowmass Village and Aspen in Colorado serve as homes for each respective resort. Aspen Highlands offers expert terrain, a 12,000-foot hike to its highest peak, and 237 skiable acres. Aspen Mountain offers skiers and snowboarders a mixture of black-diamond and backcountry skiing. Buttermilk is the family-oriented home of a 22-foot superpipe and the 2014 X Games. Snowmass boasts an astounding 4,406 vertical foot peak, 94 trails, 21 chairlifts, and plenty of off-mountain relaxation options


The Ski & Snowboard Schools of Aspen/Snowmass employ seasoned professionals and offer programs for all age and ability levels. Buttermilk hosts the Aspen/Snowmass Freeskiing Open every February, attracting pros from around the world. The Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series, from mid-January to late-March, offers exciting live music in various styles that aim to please.
