The Trip Leaders
Ski or board four super resorts, each with its own special appeal, on one lift ticket. Enjoy slope-side lodging at the Stonebridge Inn. We fly into Aspen, so the bus ride from airport to lodge is a mere 15 minutes. The fabulous hot buffet breakfast at the Stonebridge is available as an optional adder so you can start every day off right. Join Mike and Bruce on this fun trip to see why Snowmass is a favorite of many of our regular travelers. Or, come back because you already know.
Snowmass Ski Area - boasts over 3,300 acres of skiing/boarding with runs for all abilities. Experience 94 trails and the largest lift served descent in North America (4,406 vertical feet). From the gentle dips and drops of Elk Camp to the wide-open cruising trails on the Big Burn to the aggressive, double-black-diamond runs of Hanging Valley, it’s easy to see why Snowmass is among the top-rated ski areas in North America! One can spend an entire trip exploring Snowmass and never ski the same run twice. The Spider Sabich Race Arena has the ability to accommodate six varied courses simultaneously and is one of the finest Recreation ski racing facilities found anywhere. Families enjoy this mountain also because of the Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center, the first of its kind in the snow sports industry. It has a family-friendly climbing gym, teen activities, kids' retail and daycare for children 8 weeks to 4 years. Plus, there are several on-mountain restaurants offering a variety of cuisine
Buttermilk Mountain – Home of the ESPN Winter X Games through 2019 - Buttermilk has a dual personality. On one hand it‘s designed primarily for learning and improving your technique on long and easy runs, with scenic views of nearby Pyramid Peak. On the other hand: boarders! Check out the great bumps on Sterner or learn how to ski the trees in Timber Doodle Glades or drop into the 22-foot Superpipe. Buttermilk has earned the #1 ranking for a fourth consecutive year from Transworld Snowboarding Magazine. The Hideout, Buttermilk’s new children’s center will inspire children to enjoy mountain adventure and explore new challenges. If you’re looking to start out easy ... or looking to be the next big thing in freestyle skiing and riding, Buttermilk is the place to be. Locals head for the black runs on Buttermilk, especially on powder days - one of Aspen's best-kept secrets.
SKI & RIDE Aspen Mountain - This is where it all began some 70 years ago. From the beginning “Ajax” is still one incredible mountain to explore. It’s ideal for intermediate to expert skill levels as it offers some of the most challenging trails in the world. From the steep, gladed runs of the "Dumps", to the incredible bumps on Ruthie's Run, Aspen Mountain is truly the athlete's dream. Shoppers will love Aspen and the variety of shops all over town. Here one will also find two of North America’s best mountain restaurants: The Sundeck and Ajax Tavern. And … It’s Aspen, dude! This is the ski resort that all others aspire to be!
SKI & RIDE Aspen Highlands - has always been a local's favorite with uncrowded slopes, terrific views, a friendly atmosphere, and exciting and diverse terrain. There’s something for everyone here from the gentle beginning slopes, to the beautiful intermediate cruising terrain, to the more challenging Steeplechase. Aspen Highlands is a multi-faceted area with terrain to satisfy every level of skier and boarder. Locals love its hidden stashes of powder and the pristine runs of Highland Bowl. Expert skiers flock to their pick of the steeps off the Deep Temerity lift. There are several brilliant cruisers mid-mountain for beginners and intermediates. Don’t miss the unobstructed views of the famous Maroon Bells, while dining on fondue and raclette from the elevated perch of Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro.
DINE, SHOP, & MORE – Snowmass Village and nearby ASPEN offer many places to eat, shop and explore the nightly entertainment. Snowmobiling, sleigh rides, cross country skiing, hot air balloon rides and dog sledding are also available.
