Aspen Snowmass Update
Updated Friday, November 20

Snowmass and Aspen Mountain will open for the season on Wednesday, November 25th. With limited terrain on Snowmass and Aspen, and our desire to spread people out to support community efforts towards containing the spread of COVID-19, we will also be opening Panda Peak at Buttermilk for beginners starting Thursday, November 26 and running through Saturday, November 28. Aspen Highlands will open the Thunder Bowl lift and terrain for Thanksgiving Day only, Thursday, November 26 before returning to the race training venue for AVSC on Friday and through the weekend. Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk will close after these temporary openings and reopen as scheduled in December.

Ticket offices will be open only for voucher redemption and Aspen Card pickup. Day tickets must be purchased online here, even day of tickets. Those who have purchased lift tickets and passes in advance, and have received a QR code, can pick up their Aspen Cards at pickup boxes located at the base of each mountain. We will not be offering sightseeing tickets over opening weekend and until further notice.

We ask that guests be thoughtful about the limited terrain and do what they can to spread out across the four mountain options and try to avoid the busiest times of day. Please understand this is not a typical opening day and if we want to be skiing in December and beyond, it is crucial that we all recognize this and do our part. We are all excited to get on the slopes and make some turns, but let’s try to each do our part to keep the season alive. Mask wearing will be mandatory in all base areas, in all lift lines, on all lifts and in all available facilities. Please come with a mask (or two) that you are comfortable wearing throughout the day. Masks may be lowered while actually skiing and riding.

With limited terrain and expected numbers, we will be closed to all uphill traffic on open ski runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Tuesday, November 24 through Sunday, November 29. Please respect these closures during operating hours.

Food and beverage services will be limited by state and county regulations and will be limited to 25% capacity for indoor dining, with grab and go items available for outdoor dining. Operational changes, including to on-mountain dining and ski school offerings, may occur before or during your visit based on restrictions as mandated by county health agencies. Our priority is your safety and we’ll strive to keep timely updates on changes here.

Question: Will my Season Pass be refunded?

You may log in to your account to view your credit amount. Credits are valid on all Aspen Snowmass summer and winter passes, lift tickets, activities, rentals, and lessons, including season pass deposits and full purchases, through April 30, 2021.
