Where Passion Meets Purpose
Welcome to Aspen Snowmass—where four mountains make up one incredible community, and a shift in perspective is only a turn away.

Carving a New Line
As a key initiative of the first sustainability department in the ski industry, this employee-led organization has gifted over $4 million to environmental initiatives since its inception 25 years ago.
History of Aspen Gay Ski Week
What started as small meetups and condo parties in the '70s evolved into the oldest and largest gay ski event in the country, and the main annual fundraiser for local non-profit AspenOUT. Not just a good time, Aspen Gay Ski Week is good for our community, near and far.
2023 Sustainability Report
Our first sustainability report was published in 1999. In 2023, we’re still asking the hard questions. Set to be released in November 2023, look for it in your room at the Limelight Aspen, Limelight Snowmass, and The Little Nell, as well as at Aspen Snowmass ticket offices and on-mountain restaurants this winter.
