This Best Mountain on Earth!

The skiing is so good here! A true honor to be able to 'rip' on such a fine mountain! There is endless, amazing terrain and a cool small mountain feel w/ 'Big' mountain skiing!!

A great place to ski in Colorado that is somewhat off the beaten path. So, ski lines are not too long, the runs are well groomed, and after a decent snowstorm, the powder is incredible.

Highlands is my absolute favorite mountain to ski. I can spend a week on Highlands and never get bored. All year I dream of coming back to Highlands. The terrain is varied and allows for variety and the ski school with Jimbo Heard, Weems and Olga is by far my favorite reason to ski Highlands. My skills have improved year... More

the restaurant at mid station,the ski trails and a drink at the bar at the end of the day. A trip in the summer also brings fond memories and the WOW that you exclaim when you realize that you actually covered those steep trails in the winter snow.

This is not for the timid, intermediate skier. Aspen Highlands is for big dogs. Some of the gnarliest terrain around, offering bumps and steeps of the killer variety. So much fun...but your legs will be burning by day's end. Don't take Grandma.

Wonderful terrain, lots of advanced slopes, and usually less people than the other three. Watch out cell service is spottiest on this mountain.... Food is great on mountain, and don't miss out on the left side coming down just because the lift is slower... It can be a screaming groomer!!

The terrain has nice wide open trails and a great selection for more advanced snow enthusiast. I would recommend only hiking the bowl on a clear day so you can see all the views.

I love everything about Aspen Highlands. The runs are amazing, the scenery is incredible, and the staff is awesome. It is hands down my favorite of the 4 ski areas in Aspen. The Cloud Nine area is my favorite. Can't wait to go back!
