Celebrate 75 Years Of Aspen Snowmass!

New Terrain on Aspen Mountain

What’s better than skiing on Aspen Mountain? More skiing on Aspen Mountain. Debuting in the 2023–2024 winter season, the new Hero's terrain and high-speed quad will add 153 acres of cold-snow goodness to the upper, eastern aspects of Aspen Mountain. This will be the mountain’s first significant addition since the opening of the Silver Queen Gondola in December of 1985.

Hero’s will increase Aspen Mountain’s lift-served terrain by more than 20 percent. The mix includes nineteen chutes, three infinitely explorable gladed areas, and four cut trails. The project also extends some of our favorite existing runs, including Walsh’s and Kristi, lengthening vertical drop to 1,220 feet, and eliminating the hike out at the bottom. And while expert skiers have the most to celebrate, the project also adds nice helping of intermediate glades and groomed runs.

The setting is as idyllic as it gets. Views travel up Independence Pass and down to the valley floor, where the Roaring Fork River carves a meandering line through the snow-blanketed North Star Nature Preserve. It’s a gorgeous section of the mountain, peaceful, and serene.

Famous For Families!

Aspen Snowmass’ kids programs and child care are a big reason why Aspen Snowmass has become the resort of choice for countless families. Managed by their acclaimed ski & snowboard schools, these programs seamlessly blend playtime with ski instruction for young children, as well as high-quality childcare for infants and toddlers ages 1 year to 4 years. There are dedicated kids programs, child care, camps and lessons and two world-class facilities — the Treehouse Kids Adventure Center at Snowmass and The Hideout at Buttermilk. Teens love the beginner terrain parks, and 12 and under enjoy on-mountain surprises, which include fun art installations and kids-oriented trails and terrain full of adventure.

After ski, from 5-8:30pm the whole family can participate in infamous Ullr Nights! Ullr Night starts with a Gondola ride to Elk Camp – Snowmass where you’ll enjoy a bonfire (s’mores & hot chocolate available for purchase), tubing and Breathtaker Alpine Coaster with unlimited, kids tubing and kids snowbikes for ages 3 -5, and fire dancers! Ullr Nights have limited capacity and pre-purchased activity passes required. Did we mention Kids Ski Free?!
