Aspen is proud host to four magnificent mountains. Originally a silver-mining town, this characterful village is steeped in history and referred to by many as the world’s greatest ski resort. Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass mountains are the four distinct ski areas, each of which offers something completely different.
Whether it is the X Games, a conference of world leaders or an A list musician performing in a tiny venue, Aspen always has something going on and the bars, restaurants, nightspots, galleries and shops play as big a part as the skiing in attracting all manner of people, from millionaires to seasonaires. A strong sense of culture and philosophy give it a character unlike any other ski resort. Snowmass is Aspen’s sister resort and offers some of the world’s most user friendly skiing.
