Bacon Day + Uphill
Sunday, April 8
We are often asked, "do you close with Bacon Day at Buttermilk because of buttermilk pancakes?" And we always reply, "clever, but no. We just love bacon. Don't you?" For Buttermilk's final day of skiing and riding, guests can enjoy as much bacon as they can handle. Look for members of our Ski Patrol, who look forward to this day every year.
Party at the Base
Come join in the fun
The base area of Aspen Highlands is a natural conduit for all skiers and riders coming off the mountain, and it's also a natural gathering place to close out another successful season. Enjoy a live DJ, hilarious costumes and a festive atmosphere as locals and guests say "until next time" to the slopes of Aspen Highlands.
Highland Bowl Gathering
Informal, Super Chill
The Ski Patrol at Aspen Highlands has a closing day tradition of hiking up to the top of Highland Bowl and hosting an informal BBQ (weather permitting). Its the local's choice for closing day festivities.

Smith Optics Grudge Match
Sunday, April 15
Near the base of Snowmass on closing day, watch as competitors take on a plaza-style terrain park in the Smith Optics Grudge Match. This event has a fun twist: competitors spin a "trick wheel" to see what maneuvers they need to shred.
Sunday, April 15
Schneetag simply means "snow day" in German, but in the Roaring Fork Valley, it has turned into something else: a closing-day party filled with silly skits and crazy homemade sleds that descend mid-mountain at Snowmass. A chilly pond-crossing awaits at the bottom, often with hilarious results.
