Of the four mountains, Aspen Highlands avoids the spotlight, which is perfectly fine with the locals and in-the-know skiers and riders who tackle its uncrowded slopes. Hike the ridge to Highland Bowl for the sweetest run of your life, or simply cruise along the mid-mountain groomers off the Cloud Nine chairlift. Views over the valley to the snow-covered Maroon Bells constantly will remind you: this is Colorado at its best.
Dropping Into Highland Bowl
It takes 20 minutes of climbing, sometimes in blustery winds, to reach the first drop-in to Highland Bowl. But it is always worth it. Colorado's premier in-bounds terrain is not for the faint of heart, but it is certainly unlike anything else in the Rockies.

Note: Because Aspen Highlands does not have beginner runs, Beginner Lessons are not available at the mountain, but rather at Snowmass and Buttermilk. Childcare facilities are also located at these two mountains.
