Painful. A vanity trap; all about money. Basically hugely overcharged for the access of white river natl forest. Same hotels as every where else at 1000percent markup. The biggest rip off in the country.

Since we couldn't go to a more affordable world-class ski resort in BC, Canada, we booked a third year of ski holidays and conference in Colorado. Many international airports offer flights to Vail's Eagle airport or to Aspen, but the times are limited, and these regional airports shut down frequently due to weather warnings. Thus, our drive comprised 5 hours... More

The is a professional outfit with a demanding clientele. They need to get the service right, as they do. From buying lift tickets to loading skiers through the gates utilising RFID technology onto the Silver Queen Gondola and onto groomed mountains, they have a slick operation that works. We had no complaints, only praise. Vail now needs to emulate this... More

Been coming here since 1976. Some of the best resorts in the world, thankfully all under one ticket. For size, variety, and ski school quality, it's hard to beat Snowmass. For all three factors, a reason to come here with large groups. Something for everyone. However, dramatic price increases are getting out of hand. Great place, just not sure of... More

Even on a hot summer day a ride (@ $ 28 per person uphill, free downhill) in one of the ski lift gondolas to the top of the Aspen Mountain was a trip. You get a terrific view of the city of Aspen from the gondola as it makes its trip up and down the mountain. There is a restaurant... More

Trying to book lessons for my beginner kids was an experience in futility and bad advice. Not sure which was worse - having to buy a package with lift tickets were included (even though we already had them) and told to come back after skiing for a refund (really - why did we have to jump through hoops?), or my...

Ski magazines often rank each of Aspen's four mountains separately. This is a disservice as all four mountains are really one resort, with one ski pass and connected transportation. My guess is that they rank each mountain separateley because otherwise Aspen would be ranked #1 every year! There is a ski mountain for everyone. Buttermilk is just excellent for beginners... More

At about $120 per day for a lift ticket, and the rest of the prices (food, drinks, parking, rentals) to match, a family of 4 can spend approx. $7,000+ for a 6-day, modest vacation while skiing the mountains of Aspen. With less than mediocre snow for the winter vacation this year, their prices went up again. Shameless! The slopes are... More

Snowmass mountain has some incredible trails for mountain biking during the summer. You can ride the lifts up, and bike down. Snowmass is a wonderful mountain for all levels of skiing. The grooming is some of the best in the world, and the employees are always friendly and helpful.
