“Aspen area's best ski mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Local's favorite and best kept secret. Don't miss the Highlands experience! The Cloud 9 Bistro perhaps the best restaurant in the valley and definitely the best views! I was an Ambassador/Mountain Guide there for ten awesome years! Highlands boasts the most extreme in-bounds skiing in North America but lots of fantastic intermediate riding too!

“So glad we spent a day here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

As an intermediate skier who loved Snowmass, I'm so glad we spent one of our 3 days skiing at the Highlands. The Highlands has the same friendly staff, an uncrowded lift area, and plenty of wide open trails ... great change of venue.
