We skied for about five hours and got in about 13K vertical feet on mostly blue and black trails. The mountain did get a little crowded on a Saturday during a holiday week but waiting 10min in a lift line is better than anything in the northeast. The cloud 9 lift offers some great views in the afternoon as does... More

The views, the terrain, the slopes and the spots to eat and drink: an accumulation of the best in the world. There hasn't been a time that any member of my family or I didn't walk away from Highlands with thrill in the heart. An absolute YES for anyone who wants to ski in Aspen.

If you are up for a challenge, hiking the Highland's bowl is a must. The hike is demanding but the views at the top are well worth the effort and the ski down is outstanding. The is definitely a bucket list challenge. I recommend you attempt the hike on a clear, sunny day as it can often be extremely windy... More

Aspen Highlands is a great ski area. It is not crowded and has great runs off of two chair lifts. I have been coming to this ski area since 1992 and I enjoy it every year. All the ski runs are awesome. Just a heads up this is not a beginner mountain. Hope you enjoy your next trip to Aspen.

This has a reputation as the locals' mountain, and I can certainly see why both based on the amount of extreme terrain and the difficulty in matching up the runs on the mountain with what's listed on the map--there doesn't always seem to be much overlap! The signs on-mountain have a vintage look that makes it difficult to tell (through... More

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!!
