Ski and Snowboard

Snowmass mountain is massive. 96 trails, 3,339 acres of terrain, and 4,406 vertical feet of skiing and riding. From the gladed trees of Burnt Mountain and expert couloirs in Hanging Valley, to miles of intermediate cruisers like Sneaky's and beginner areas for learning, Snowmass is boundless. And that's just the skiing. The Breathtaker Alpine Coaster offers lap after lap of giggles along its winding turns and The Treehouse Kids' Adventure Center takes great care of your kids with custom themed playrooms like the Bear Den. Tie it all together with the terrain parks and the hundreds of top-notch Ski & Snowboard School Pros and you'll understand why families keep coming back year after year. Check out the Snowmass ski area map here.

And that's just what's outside the door. 

A short free shuttle ride will take you to the other three ski mountains of Aspen, Aspen Highlands, or Buttermilk - all accessible with a single lift ticket or your Ikon Pass.

Where to park in Aspen for skiing?

Parking at any of the four mountains is possible, but lots fill up quickly during peak times and on powder days. There are plenty of local public transportation options, including the free RFTA bus routes and the Village shuttle system within Snowmass Village. We highly recommend using public transportation.
