Great place to stop for lunch or to grab a few drinks at the end of the day. Pricey but not out of line for where it's located,

This is not a mountain for beginners, but decent and expert skiers will enjoy it. Probably has the best food of any of the mountain restaurants I visited in the area.

Not a mountain for the weak of skill. If your just learning or even with a few years under your belt, you would enjoy Snowmass much more. This is a steep tough mountain with amazing trails and one of the more epic ski views in Colorado. The dining is not bad up top and the apres ski is ample and... More

I got up early for 'first tracks' on Ajax mountain for the last 5 days of my 14 day stay in Aspen and I wish I'd started this morning ritual on day one. We were lucky with dumps of snow while we were there and one morning, after 11 inches of snowfall the night before, were snowboarding through powder up... More

The only mountain that is actually in the town. Not for beginners. Also does not have a ski school (Buttermilk and Snowmass do) so not really ideal if you have kids (unless they are older and very good skiers).

I love Aspen. Everyone is so friendly. It is so convenient - the town is right at the base of the mountain. Blue skies and great skiing...hard to beat!!!

The location is super convenient for anyone staying in Aspen, you can walk right on the gondola and be to the top of the mountain in minutes, the layout is a lot of front to back and top to bottom - not a lot of side to side or traversing.

We just returned from skiing in Aspen/Snowmass. My husband and I skied Aspen 27 years ago and loved it. Since then we prefer to ski a different mountain every year and have traveled all over Canada and US. This year we decided to return to the resort that started our yearly ski trips. We loved Snowmass and Aspen Highlands but... More

There is a good reason this is an excellent place to take the family skiing - it's got so much to offer. The accommodation options are wide ranging and if you go off-season as we did, availability and price is comparable to other places - not way over the top prices as we initially thought might be the case.
