PLEASE NOTE: While Pitkin County is returning to Orange level restrictions, all ASC restaurants remain at the Yellow level under the 5-Star Variance.
All Aspen Skiing Company restaurants, both on and off the mountains have received the 5-Star Variance due to our meticulous attention to health and safety protocols. We continue to operate with an indoor capacity of 50%, in addition to our decks and outdoor seating areas. We still recommend preordering meals and taking advantage of expanded outdoor seating on decks, in open air tents and in public spaces for dining.
At Snowmass, you could spend your entire trip skiing and riding its terrain without covering the same ground twice. From the choice expert terrain of Burnt Mountain Glades, High Alpine and the Cirque, to the long blue groomers and impressive beginner facilities for newcomers, it is an easy choice. But it is not all about skiing and riding at Snowmass. The new Snowmass Base Village boasts an ice rink, climbing wall and the new Limelight Hotel Snowmass.
With the 2019-20 season, Aspen Snowmass introduced the new Sam’s. A $2.5 million remodel transformed the space at 10,620 ft. atop Sam’s Knob into a modern Italian restaurant with sweeping views, an open bar area, live-action kitchen, fireplace with relaxed seating, and a stylish deck. The new Sam's includes quick-serve and grab-and-go breakfast options plus an Italian-style coffee bar.
Also atop Sam's Knob? A new snow stake camera to more accurately measure — and broadcast — the latest snow conditions.
A project ten years in the making has reached its debut: the new Snowmass Base Village opened in December 2018 to great fanfare. Featuring the new Limelight Hotel Snowmass, a five-story indoor climbing wall, a village plaza with ice-skating rink, new retail, and The Collective—a collaborative art, music, culture and activities space—there are a lot of reasons to check it out.
