At Aspen Snowmass, we are grateful to have the vast wilderness of the Elk Mountains as our playground, and wide open spaces to recreate in. Thankfully, social distancing is a natural part of a life lived outside. We’re doing our part by putting in place procedures that will keep our guests, employees, and community safe and healthy.

It will be a different type of season and things will feel different across our operations, but the underlying spirit and joy of our sport will still be there. We are making a concerted effort to make the process not only safer, but more streamlined and more convenient for everyone. From pre-arrival, to transportation and parking, to rental, retail, dining and ski school, we have designed new operating plans to speed up the process, keep guests on the hill, maximize distancing and spread things out.

With our new digital enhancements, you can skip the ticket office and be on the slopes faster than ever. The new step-by-step Account Portal and enhanced Aspen Snowmass App functionality allows you to enjoy a contactless experience before, during, and after your trip. Read more to plan your visit.

  • While keeping safety at the forefront, Four Mountain Sports will continue to offer you the many benefits it is known for, including the only rental shop with locations at the base of all four of our mountains, free ski storage, and free ski transfer to the mountain of your choice.

    In order to maximize safety, this year Four Mountain Sports will introduce new rental products including ‘Skip A Day.’ If you purchased 4-or-more days of rentals and are taking the day off and do not want to return your equipment, this enables you to rent longer without having to visit a rental shop multiple times during your stay.

    Outdoor tents will be erected for returns at select rental locations and a new virtual queuing system will be implemented. This will allow you to use your mobile device to scan a code to place yourself next in line for ski or snowboard rentals.

    Lastly, the teams will be implementing new concepts during the rental process with the goal of minimizing contact with our boot fitters and ski technicians.
  • Our ski and snowboard pros will still be offering the same acclaimed services, insider intel and commitment to take your skills to the next level, now with new safety measures in place. All group ski lessons will be capped at five people and will require a reservation. Alternative meeting locations that maximize distancing will be implemented. The Ski & Snowboard School staff will be managing the child/teen check-in process for all group lessons to ensure safety. Also, each day our ski and snowboard pros will check-in via a mobile pro health screening, ensuring both the welfare of you and your pro. Childcare out of the Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center will be available for local residents, employees and those who are living in the Valley for the entire season. Due to limited space and to increase safety for all, we will not be offering childcare to children 3 ½ and under for short term visitors.

    Guests can complete required forms in the Account Portal before arriving in order to unlock a more contactless and faster dropoff at Treehouse and Hideout.
