The Aspen Skiing Company allows uphill traffic with few restrictions on all four of our mountains. Please keep in mind ascending is a privilege, not a right. Respecting these guidelines preserves this privilege. All of our restrictions are in place to minimize conflicts between uphillers and downhill traffic on the slopes. All uphillers must have a valid lift ticket or pass to ride up any lifts.
Uphillers are asked to be extra vigilant when ascending. The ski areas operate 24 hours a day and snowcats, snowmobiles, other skiers and snowboarders and all types of equipment can be operating at any time. Uphillers are asked to keep to the sides of runs and remain visible from above at all times.
Please be familiar with the rules on the mountain you are ascending:
• Aspen Mountain: Uphillers must be at the gondola by 9 a.m. No dogs are allowed in the winter. The designated route is America’s Uphill course and it is marked. It starts on Little Nell run, goes up Bingo Slot, Spar Gulch, left into Deer Park and onto Silver Bell.
• Aspen Highlands: To go beyond the Merry Go Round, uphillers must have reached the mid-mountain restaurant by 9 a.m. There is no designated route up the mountain. Uphillers are asked to travel along the edges of trails, and in single-file formation. Dogs are not allowed at Highlands.
• Buttermilk: Uphilling is allowed on Buttermilk all day long. The route is designated on Main and Tiehack by orange disks. The Tiehack route goes up Eagle Hill to Ptarmigan, for the most part on skier’s left. The route up Main follows the disks from the base, snakes back in the woods and then crosses Midway Avenue to Ridge Trail to the top. The Main route is closed during X build, games and tear down. No dogs allowed. Please hike single file and stay to the edge of the trail. The downhill skier or rider has the right of way. Do not stop under breakovers. Downloading is allowed on Summit Express chair and foot passengers must sign release before downloading. No downloading allowed on Tiehack Express. Straying off the designated route may take the uphill privilege away from everyone.
• Snowmass: Snowmass is the only place where dogs are allowed with uphillers throughout the day; however, they must be on a leash. There is no designated route and no restrictions, other than to obey closed signs.
