An Austin Skiers Favorite!!

"ski-in/ski-out" Lodging - Top of the Village



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 October 2018 issue of "Ski" magazine, their latest survey named Aspen/Snowmass "Best of the West - Resorts of the year 2019."

The Skiing:
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 Sheer Bliss high speed quad lift provides a very convenient ride to the top of Snowmass. The run is a long-groomer 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 with 675 acres of skiable terrain - 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 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. 

The Towns:
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 it has a total of 25 restaurants and bars 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 and 3-bedroom/3-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


Transportation: 
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.

Ski Lessons:

For those interested in ski & snowboard lessons from their acclaimed pros along with several videos from "edging" to "the power of the pole plant."
