A Small Place with Big Ideas

At Aspen Snowmass, small drops can lead to big dreams—and the small details make a big difference. We’ve got 5,500+ acres of terrain across four mountains—each with its own personality—but we’re not just a ski resort. 

The 2022-2023 winter season was packed with memorable moments. From zipper lines on Bell Mountain and hiking and sending Highland Bowl to steep and deep laps on Hanging Wall and growing our uphill community on Tiehack—we collectively skied and rode 155 days this season, with each sunrise offering a fresh opportunity to gain new perspective.

This winter, we hosted the 2023 Audi FIS Ski World Cup and accumulated more than 360 inches of deep, Rocky Mountain powder. Traditions like the 13th annual Audi Power of Four Ski Mountain Race, the 22nd X Games Aspen, and the 46th Aspen Gay Ski Week were carried on. And new ideas–like exploring why MLK Day Matters in the Ski Industry, opening a brand-new base area at Buttermilk, and preparing Pandora’s (which will add 153 more acres of skiable terrain on Aspen Mountain next season), were introduced.

At Aspen Snowmass, we believe passion can coexist with purpose and that the best experiences stay with you long after you’ve returned home. This winter was no different—thank you for dreaming big with us.

We're just a ski resort. But are we?

Who We Are

Big ideas have always been at our core

In 1946, Aspen installed the world’s longest chairlift with the collective efforts of the local community, veterans of the 10th Mountain Division, and Chicago industrialists Walter and Elizabeth Paepcke—who helped pave the way for a modern Aspen where mind, body, and spirit could be equally engaged. Since then, we’ve led the ski industry in environmental stewardship, hospitality, arts and culture, and of course, skiing and riding... but we’re not done yet.
