Welcome to Snomass -

The Power of Four


The Resort:

Snowmass serves as the "Mountain Village" for the Aspen ski areas, and as the resorts tag line suggests it is actually made up of four distinct ski areas, Ajax or Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snomass Mountains. Each area has its own characteristics and there is a tremendous amount of all types and classifications of terrain. There truly is something for everyone, and no chance of anyone running out of areas to explore. Aspen is a real skiers area.

Ajax Mountain, rises out of the heart of downtown Aspen and is famous for its steeps, bumps and incredible views, it  is exhilarating for skiers and snowboarders alike. Aspen Highlands, known as the locals’ favorite mountain features extreme terrain, groomed cruisers and breathtaking views of the Maroon Bells. For the ultimate skiing or snowboarding experience, hike up and drop into Highland Bowl. Buttermilk Mountain is the home of the ESPN Winter X Games, and is also a premier mountain for beginners. While experts frolic in the terrain park, the rest of the family can cruise on the wide, rolling trails. Snowmass Mountain, with 3,128 acres of cruisers, steeps, terrain parks and halfpipes, defies belief. So many runs, so much variety, and all of it fun for the entire family.

The village of Snowmass is a family orientated resort and has a wide selection of condos townhomes and private homes from which to choose. It provides a high proportion of ski-in ski-out units and as with any purpose built resort, has great access to the mountain. Whilst not seen as quite as glitzy as the Town of Aspen proper, Snowmass Village can offer the visitor everything that you could possibly need in a ski area and at a fraction of the cost! The big advantage of Snowmass is that you have the biggest ski area on your doorstep and you have access to all of the other three mountains on the same lift ticket.
