We are excited to return to our most popular destination and one of the most convenient slope side lodging properties. You will be thrilled to know that in the latest issue of "Ski" magazine where they released their latest survey, Aspen/Snowmass was named "Best of the West - Resorts of the year 2019."
The four mountains of Aspen/Snowmass comprise one of the best-known ski resorts in the world. Snowmass is the largest of the four with over 3,000 acres of skiable terrain - so much variety – cruisers, steeps, glades, off-piste, terrain parks, super pipe and the longest lift-served vertical rise in the US. The new Sheer Bliss high speed quad lift provides a very convenient ride to the top of Snowmass. Most of the lifts have built-in maps to review while you ride, too.
Rising out of the heart of downtown Aspen and famous for its steeps, bumps and incredible views, Aspen Mountain and its double-black and tree runs are fun for skiers and snowboarders alike.
Known as the locals’ favorite mountain, Aspen Highlands features extreme terrain, groomed cruisers and breathtaking views. For the ultimate ski or snowboarding experience, hike up and drop into Highland Bowl. Buttermilk also remains North America’s best family learning center. While experts frolic in the new 22 foot Olympic sized half pipe and terrain park, the rest of us can cruise on the wide, rolling trails. All of these mountains are connected by a free shuttle service.
Take the free, 20 minute shuttle to chic Aspen to enjoy the hard to beat selection and quality of shops and restaurants. Entertainment options abound, both in Snowmass and in Aspen. While Snowmass is smaller, it has added to its new base village with 5 new restaurants and bars, making a total of 25 in Snowmass Village.
Slopeside and Ski-In/Ski-Out Accommodations!
We’re staying at our favorite property in Snowmass, the 2-bedroom/2-bath condos at the Top of the Village. The Top of the Village is surrounded on three sides by forests and mountains and reigns as one of the very finest ski-in/ski-out properties in Snowmass. Just a short walk out your door to the slopes, in some units you can literally ski right to your back door. You’ll also be within walking distance of Snowmass Village shopping, restaurants and activities. The condos have a washer & dryer in each unit and the elevators give your tired legs a break when you come home from a full day of skiing.
You will have an early morning flight from Austin and then bus from Denver, arriving at our condos in the afternoon. We'll make a stop for groceries and refreshments. The condos have their own free on-demand shuttle to take you to the Village restaurants, bars and the market. The Snowmass Village shuttle is also free and the buses to Aspen, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk are free too.
