About Aspen Highlands
Known as the locals' favorite in the Aspen area, Aspen Highlands is all about expert skiing. The views from Aspen Highlands are amazing and when combined with a lift ticket that's good at all four Aspen Resorts, Aspen Highlands makes for an epic ski trip.
This is not the place to go if it's your first time on your skies or snowboard. Aspen Highlands has lots of expert terrain: chutes, steeps, trees, bowls, moguls, cliffs. You are sure to have a blast riding down the 3600 feet of vertical steeps Apsen Highlands offers. You can ride double-blacks from the Summit all the way to the base at the Highlands.
There are some easier green and blue runs in the middle of the mountain, but a true beginner would have more variety and like-minded people over at Snowmass or Buttermilk Mountains.
Hike to the Highlands Bowl for deep snow and epic lines on a powder day. Every way down from Highlands Bowl is a double-black, so be ready to shred. There are great trees through Canopy Cruiser on the way back from this Bowl.
Downtown Aspen is a short drive or shuttle ride away. There are plenty of dining, shopping, and lodging options within walking distance of the slopes.
Reasons to Go:
Aspen Village; Expert ski terrain; Power of Four- your lift ticket is good at all four Aspen Resorts: Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Snowmass and Buttermilk.
