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. Come see for yourself this winter.

They sneak up on you—those unexpected moments that give way to something bigger. A lift-line fist bump leads to a forever friendship. A lung-busting hike that delivers the run of a lifetime. A lift ticket that doubles as art. A vacation postcard that pushes U.S. senators on climate. At Aspen Snowmass, we believe passion can coexist with purpose and that the best experiences stay with you long after you’ve gone home.

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.
