It´s a great place to ski. Aspen Highlands have such great tracks. It was amazing if you like hard ones. Cons - prices.

I liked Aspen Highlands a lot. It's the more difficult one out if the four aspen mountains. If you are a seasoned rider, you should def make the hike up to highland peak. The views are amazing and the ride down is even better.

Fantastic ski runs and views from many vantage points. Shops and cafes at the base are excellent along with Cloud 9 for a great lunch stop. A must for any skier!!

The mountain is not very big, but has some of the best lift-served and non-lift-served skiing in North America. There is also very good intermediate skiing.

We visited Aspen the week before Christmas and skied all the local areas. Aspen Highlands had the best snow as it is the highest elevation in the area. Mostly blue/black runs (so not the best resort for beginners). But great for intermediate to advanced skiers.

Some say it is the "runt" of the litter or the less glamorous of the four mountains, but it is really beautiful. Great scenery in the summer and challenging skiing in the winter. Not nearly as crowded or a pretentious as some of the other locations.

Highlands usually has fewer people, and I've grown to love the adventure offered here. There are steeps with ungroomed slopes for experts, and they finally added another chair life over past Steeplechase. There is a large bowl- but check conditions before setting out on the long hard climb to get up there. Within easy chair access there are some marvelous... More

This is the skiers' mountain in the Aspen/Snowmass area. Less frills and tree cutting going on here. If you cannot ski the steep on a single and double fall lines do not come here. The slopes are not designed for traversing the blacks (Thank God!). The crowds are typically smaller and move better than Ajax. This is my favorite in... More

Lots of vertical and STEEP! Fast lifts get you up the mountain quickly. Not for beginners, go to Buttermilk. Near the very best of America's ski mountains. A great mountain with excellent runs and trees. It's a bit steeper than Ajax (Aspen Mountain), but the 4 mountains make this North America's best ski destination. Great food in town, the only...
