Beginner skiers will thrive at Buttermilk and Snowmass, both have beginner and kid-friendly facilities, and designated “learn to ski” zones designed for adults and children. All-in-all Aspen Snowmass is an intermediate skier’s heaven, since the overwhelming majority of all four mountains, aka the “Power of Four” terrain is designated as intermediate terrain. Beginner skiers, especially first-timers, are discouraged from skiing at Aspen Mountain, because there are no green trails.
On the flip side, expert skiing is what Aspen Mountain or "Ajax Mountain" and Aspen Highlands are known for. There’s no better place for top-to-bottom runs thanks to Ajax’ Silver Queen Gondola’s 3,267 foot vertical ascent. Aspen Mountain is famous for its long, steep mogul runs and challenging fall-line. Those with a spirit of adventure can also get their kicks by hiking the 700 vertical feet to the top of famed Aspen Highland Bowl. You’ll be rewarded at the Bowl’s summit with one Aspen Snowmass’ best views and an unparalleled off-piste experience.
