WARNING: Warming temperatures increase the probability of wet slab avalanches. It is strongly recommended that you limit your uphill and downhill skiing and riding to the morning hours. Details

Exercise caution and judgement on and below high angle terrain. Pay attention to the daily freeze/thaw cycle and be aware if it did not freeze the night before. The ski areas are closed and no avalanche mitigation has occurred since March 14th. Please treat the ski areas with the same care you would in the backcountry and stay aware of your surroundings at all times. You assume all risks when entering the ski areas. Call 911 for emergencies and rescues. Learn more.

UPHILL POLICY

Aspen Snowmass allows uphilling at all four ski areas. Please read each mountain's specific uphill policies by clicking on the links below.

Please keep in mind that uphilling is a privilege and not a right. Our rules are put in place to minimize conflicts between uphill and downhill traffic on the slopes and maximize everyone’s safety and enjoyment.

Please be aware that no ski area services, including Ski Patrol, are available during hours that the ski areas are not open for business. Please call 911 in the event of an emergency during non-operational hours. You are responsible for your own safety at all times while on Aspen Skiing Company property.
