With Snowmass and Aspen Mountain open for winter, ski season is officially here, storms are rolling in and there’s no better time than now to start planning your mountain getaway. Whether you’re looking to get early season turns in, enjoy some mountain town holiday magic or kick off the new year with a January ski trip, Aspen Snowmass offers something for everyone, no matter the time of season.
We have a few tips for when to plan your trip for the best Aspen Snowmass lodging deals.
We’re kicking off winter with Passapalooza, December 13-15, when your season pass to anywhere gets you a $59 lift ticket to Aspen Snowmass. Art, culture and snow sports collide for a long weekend full of art and light installations in Snowmass, festivities such as The Little Nell’s “Party Like it’s 1989” 30th anniversary extravaganza, $99 clinics, $56 demo packages from Four Mountain Sports and food and drink specials throughout Aspen Snowmass.
Beyond Passapalooza, the early season includes Thanksgiving and Thanksjibbing, the 12 days of Christmas, leading up to the holiday season and some of the best deals on lodging that you can find during the winter season. The early season offers a local vibe across our four mountains and the towns of Aspen and Snowmass. There are often even early season dining deals (and plenty of seating) at some of the best restaurants in town.
