i visited this ski area during a weeklong stay in Aspen. I found it to be a well organized ski area with friendly staff and service. On the downside it is a small area compared to Aspen Mountain and Snowmass. However what it lacks in variety it makes up for in service including groomed runs and helpful staff. If you... More

Highlands is the local's favorite, though it attacts skiers of all abilities. Summer is also great....and is the place to catch the bus to the Maroon Bells, which is a MUST see in the summer.

Had a great day skiing in Aspen Highlands. Wide open trails, not too crowded at all. Definitely preferred this mountain to Ajax.

Starting visiting Aspen Highland as a teenager with my family staying at the old lodge at the base of the mountain. Had not been back in 30 years. The lodge is gone, but the skiing is still excellent. Visited Aspen Mt/ Ajax on this trip for the first time and wished we were back at Highlands.

Steeper mountain than Ajax; depends what you're looking for. The institution that is Cloud 9 is worth the visit and the experience assuming there's a party happening at the same time. Views from the top are stupendous and worth the trek.

Skied Aspen, Aspen Highlands, and Snowmass. We loved each mountain for different reasons, but had to review Aspen Highlands because of the awesome ski Ambassadors: Kevin and Peter (on 2 separate visits during our week these guys made us feel like they were welcoming us to "our own private mountain"!) We have spoiled our family with this vacation, and will... More

The Highlands is 'the locals' mountain for a reason. A radical experience for the advanced skier in top condition and confidence. A hike up the ridge to Highlands bowl should be led by fellow skier w/ 'bowl' experience. Try Steeple Chase first. If you can handle that then…earn your 'locals' badge in the bowl.
