With four mountains collectively forming one massive Colorado family ski resort, visitors from all over the world flock to Aspen
for some of the most mind-blowing skiing in Colorado (and perhaps even the planet). With more than 5,300 acres of terrain, four mountains, and one lift ticket, you can finally experience "The Power of Fours."
With immaculately groomed cruisers and expert terrain, the Aspen Highlands mountain offers a variety of trails for all skill levels. If you are looking for challenging, big mountain terrain -- look no further than this mountain.
As the oldest of the four areas, Aspen Mountain provides skiers and snowboarders with more difficult trails, bumps, and steeps. This mountain does not provide beginner trails, so stick to the other mountains if you are a timid or novice rider.
If you are looking for a more family-oriented mountain to cruise down, Buttermilk is the perfect place for you. This ski area provides gently rolling hills and wide-open spaces that cater to newbies and families. However, more experienced and expert riders shouldn't shy away from this mountain just because Buttermilk provides novices with ideal terrain. This mountain is also home to a 22-foot superpipe, two terrain parks, and an X Games-style course.
As the largest of the four areas and bigger than the previous three combined, Snowmass features 96 trails, 21 lifts, three terrain parks, half pipes, and more.
There are plenty of family fun activities and attractions if you are looking to get away from the slopes at this family ski resort in Colorado, including snowmobile tours, ice skating, rock climbing, campfires, and more. The nature-themed Treehouse Kids' Adventure Center offers children fun and educational ways to explore the Colorado mountains. You may not be able to see it all in one trip, so don't bite off more than you can chew.
