Snowmass Ski Tour February 2021

 

We are spending 14 nights in the Aspen Snowmass area to take in the fantastic skiing (and views) of the four mountains available on one ski pass – Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and the “out of this world” Snowmass.  Aspen averages 300 Bluebird days a year…it snows at night so you can have powder days…pure magic.  The majority of our time will be spent at Snowmass with 16 lifts from high-speed gondolas, to double chairs to out of the way places, to make the most of their 8.5km runs.  Choose from 96 long trails spread over 3,339 acres of terrain and you have an amazing skiing experience, in amazing snow.  Groomed blue or black runs, moguls or back bowls, steep or deep, it’s all at Snowmass.  Not to mention the high-class shopping at the Snowmass Mall, restaurants and bars are only 10 minutes walk away.
