Local Community Support

Aspen Skiing Company (ASC) contributes more than $3,413,000 in products and services to local nonprofit organizations. Whether it's a fundraiser to pay someone's medical bills, items for a silent auction, or lift tickets for disabled veterans, Aspen Skiing Company is committed to making a difference in the Roaring Fork Valley community. Download our philanthropy brochure highlighting our efforts to support the local community.

2011_HWY_CleanupASC employees are also encouraged to give back to the community.  Our employee volunteer policy provides all full-time year-round employees 16 hours of paid volunteer time. We've built homes with Habitat for Humanity, rehabilitated trails throughout the Roaring Fork Valley, and volunteered with numerous charities. If all eligible employees took advantage of this benefit we'd add 15,500 hours to the non-profit community, worth $330,000.

In 2014-15 ASC employees contributed over 1,600 volunteer hours to the community through events like Komen's Race for the Cure, Shining Stars Winter Games, and the Town of Snowmass Village's Annual Clean Up.

The ASC Family Fund has set aside $5,000 to support employees participating in events that get you outside pushing your limits; such as Bike MS: Colorado, Komen's Race for the Cure, Aspen Town n' Trail 10K, and Boogie's Buddy Race. Through this Wellness Matching Program, each employee is eligible to receive up to $125 in matching funds. ASC employees just register for the event and submit a copy of their registration and proof of funds raised to Matt Hamilton, and a contribution will be donated in their name.


Ski Patrol Field Trip from Outside Adventure Media on VimeoAspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES) brings 350 second grade students from Basalt Elementary, Aspen Elementary, Carbondale Community School, Blue Lake Preschool, Aspen Country Day, and Sopris Elementary to Aspen Mountain each winter to learn about snow science, local animal winter adaptations, and skier safety.

Aspen/Snowmass supports this program donating 100s of footpasses for students and chaperones to ride the Silver Queen Gondola (the first time for many involved). Once atop Aspen Mountain the students  are introduced to the techniques of snowshoeing by ACES educators. The groups then explore along Richmond ridge, taking part in the "winter challenge course" where they act out various adaptations animals have and use to survive and thrive in the winter (becoming weasels and digging into the subnivian zone to look for mice and voles to eat, walking single-file through deep snow like a herd of deer, etc.) After lunch, the students learn about snow science and ski safety from the Aspen Mountain Ski Patrol. This includes avalanche study, snow safety equipment, and working with the rescue dogs as one of the "lucky" second grade students is buried and then found under the snow.
