Aspen's 4 mountains are fantastic. The ski area operations are first-rate. The ski co. also gets involved in catering, lodging, restaurants and events. They push all the other stuff...but their strength remains in the skiing and mountain operations.

Decided to take ski lessons as I have NEVER tried it before. Im 42 and was worried I would end up in a group with a bunch of children. That DID NOT happen. Over my 6 days of classes, I was with 3 different instructors who were all wonderful. I made lasting friendships with people from all over the world,... More

To get a feel for the range of ski towns in Colorado one need only to travel to Aspen and Vail both towns are as different as can be ,like night and day. Vail is patterned after alpine ski resorts in Euroland, quite the pristine and proper chalets and modern amenities. A rather large clock tower looms in the center... More

If you count happy employees, sensational service, caring attitudes and attention to detail as meritorious of being one of the best companies around, then Aspen Skiing Company is it. Because this company pays well, their employees are just sensationally different than other large ski operations. For instance, the ski instructors are simply the best in the business. All the top...

In other words, the Ski Co is the 800 lb Gorilla in the room. What the ski company says goes, but that does not imply they've been making wrong decisions, as they have not...the Ski Co makes snow for us to ski upon, it grooms the runs so the ski experience can be expanded and appreciated more. It is in... More

The Aspen Ski Company Employees are great and helpful. Very hardworking and always there to answer any questions you may have. A great opportunity if you are not sure which ski's you might want to buy to take some out for a demo run.

Aspen mountain is a wonderful ski area with lots of history and a real town at the base of the hill. From town, the visable portion of the ski hill is rather intimidating as all the easier runs are located at the top, not visible from town. This is a good mountain for experts. Beginners and intermediates should go elsewhere... More

There wasn't much choice but to use this company to buy ski lift tickets and lesson tickets - but they were efficient and friendly. We hired skis at Inclide - a different place to support a different business as Aspen Ski Co still had a few thousand dollars from us for lift tickets and lessons!

ASC does a tremendous job. We've been coming to Aspen for 20 years +. The lift systems are wonderful. The automated ski passes are wonderful. The grooming conditions are wonderful. The skiing variety is wonderful. The bus transporation is wonderful. And, we believe, for this year they FINALLY changed the advance purchases so you could buy a 5 out of... More
