Four Mountains to Uphill

Earn your turns on your next ski day. Uphilling has become a favorite winter activity for locals and visitors alike at Aspen Snowmass and we want to share the fun. For those of you who just can't get enough time on the slopes and want a unique on-mountain experience, uphilling is a great workout with a sweet reward.


What is uphilling, you might ask? Uphilling is the act of traversing up a mountain on skis or a split board with specialized equipment including skins (the sticky coverings on the bottom of skis) and specialized alpine touring bindings. If you're new to uphilling, Aspen Snowmass offers uphilling lessons and alpine touring equipment rentals are available at Four Mountain Sports.


All four mountains of Aspen Snowmass accommodate uphill skiers with designated routes to ensure safety as well as a scenic and enjoyable route to the top. Learn more on each mountain's uphill page.
