Aspen Mountain. Ajax (as the locals call it), is the flagship
mountain of the Aspen/Snowmass resort complex. It rises imposingly out
of the heart of downtown Aspen to 11,212 feet. This 675-acre mountain
is known for steeps and bumps and is a favorite among
upper-intermediate and advanced skiers.
Aspen Highlands is known as the locals' favorite mountain.
Located just three miles from downtown Aspen and accessible by free
shuttle, Aspen Highlands' 675 acres feature stunning views of the
world-famous Maroon Bells, and some of Colorado's most challenging
Buttermilk Mountain, one of four mountains in the
Aspen/Snowmass resort complex, is located just three miles outside the

in the country. Most of Buttermilk's 420 acres are groomed each night
and 74 percent of Buttermilk's ski and snowboard terrain is rated
beginner or intermediate.
Snowmass is Aspen's giant mountain, a massive 3,010 acre
mountain offering incredibly varied terrain for skiing and
snowboarding, including half-pipes and terrain parks. It is said to be
the open-glade cruising capital with good terrain for all skills, all
ages, all passions -- and fast lifts and very long runs.
