Aspen Ski Areas

Aspen snowmass rentals four ski areas early winter snow

Winter is here and it’s time to book your skiing vacation rentals. Aspen Mountain will be opening up 153 new acres for this season scheduled for November 23, 2023. Usually when it snows like this, we just go ahead and open early.  

Aspen ski areas consist of four distinct ski areas within 10 miles. We have Aspen Mountain, Aspen, Highlands, buttermilk, and Snowmass Village. Snowmass Village which is the largest of our 4 ski areas at 3500 acres. Snowmass has three base areas with lots of shopping and restaurants. Snowmass Mountain has something for everyone. It would take four days of skiing to ski every run from green runs to double black, and even extreme runs. 

Aspen a historic town from the 1880s where there are over 100 restaurants, shops, bars and nightclubs. We have a gondola that takes you to the top in 14 minutes where you can ski 3300 vertical feet back to the town of Aspen. 

Aspen Highlands has the Highlands bowl which is 2200 vertical of some extreme skiing. The is a quant base area with shops, restaurants and skier services.

Buttermilk is more for beginners and intermediates with some black runs on the Tiehack. Every late January Buttermilk hosts the winter X-games which you can watch live on television.
