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!

The hike to Highland Bowl is a nerve-wracking experience soon after the Cat leaves you and you find out quickly why the Cat can go now further. Let's just say snow conditions determine degree of difficulty for that bootpack with skis on your back (using straps Ski Patrol supplies at nominal cost), but when we were there it was about...

The Aspen Highlands mountain is a wonderful mountain for beginners, intermediate and expert skiers. It is a beautiful mountain full of great trails. But if you are looking for a chalenge, try hiking the bowl and skiing it down, it's really a challenge but once you finish you feel like you are on top of the world. Be prepared to... More

Aspen Highlands has a great layout, small crowds, great snow, and some of the best terrain I've ridden. It has everything from some of the steepest runs around to perfectly mellow terrain for beginners.
