Skied Aspen and loved it. Excellent and organized with easy access from downtown Aspen. Slopes are a bit more advanced than other Aspen mountains but still something for all levels. Also, good apres ski drink/eat options. Food at summit also excellent!

It's the best view of Aspen. And don't think it's only for skiers. You cab go all the way up in the gondola and at top there is a good restaurant. Tell the ticket agent that you are not going to ski.

I was skiing the mountain on 1/7/15 and not once did anyone help me at the base. This while three attendants stood around and talked to each... More

Great snow, great terrain, and great staff! We enjoyed a great run with one of the mountain ambassadors and loved the tour of his favorite parts of the mountain. Conditions were impressive for early season, and the terrain here just can't be beat.

Bonnie's is great for lunch! We had great snow and small lines. A world class mountain and you feel like you are skiing alone! Way different than Vail!

what great place to eat outdoors when the sun is shining and watch the activity at the base of the mountain. Great people watching. Don't miss the mussels and frites. Soups are equally as good
