Aspen Highlands to open for a bonus weekend, April 27-28
Aspen Highlands remains open for daily operations through April 21 with the official closing celebration Sunday, April 21. Aspen Highlands will close April 22-26 and reopen for Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28.
With breathtaking 360-degree views of the Maroon Bells and an abundance of expert terrain as well as groomed cruisers, it’s no wonder Aspen Highlands has been the locals’ favorite for over 50 years. Hike the 12,392 feet to the summit of Highland Bowl for the ultimate inbounds backcountry rush. Or take the Deep Temerity lift to access the recently-added 237 skiable acres. It all adds up to some of the most challenging big-mountain terrain in North America.
