Aspen Mountain (a.k.a. Ajax)
Rising out of the heart of downtown Aspen, Aspen Mountain serves up a vertical smorgasbord of double-black and gladed runs for skiers and snowboarders. Opened in 1947, Aspen Mountain's steeps, bumps and incredible views have been famous for decades.

Aspen Highlands is the locals' favorite. With an abundance of expert terrain, groomed cruisers and breathtaking views of the Maroon Bells, it's no wonder. Then, there's Highland Bowl - Colorado's ultimate off-piste experience - where a 30-minute hike to the summit will reward you with 2,500-vertical-foot descents down pitches as steep as 45 degrees.

Home of the ESPN Winter X Games through 2012 (an unprecedented run of eleven consecutive years), Buttermilk is also widely regarded as the place for beginners and families to cruise wide, rolling trails. Olympians, X games champs and other park kids brave the giant features in the legendary terrain park. JUST ADDED...a high-speed quad up Tiehack.

Too massive to be adequately explored in a single day, Snowmass demands repeat trips. And who wouldn't want to revisit over 3,000 acres of cruisers, steeps, terrain parks and halfpipes, splayed upon a Rocky Mountain massif with a vertical drop of 4,406 feet? With 21 lifts and 94 trails, Snowmass defies belief.
