And why not save yourself money during your ski holiday to the Colorado Rocky Mountains? We offer discounts and deals on airfare, lodging, transportation, lift tickets and rentals for a great Aspen ski package - when you book your ski vacation package with us we help take care of the little details all at once. And speaking of details, here's a little information about what you'll find when you get there:

Aspen Mountain
It's been 60 years since "Ajax" first opened to the delight of skiers the world over, and since then it has grown to be the winter destination of choice for a wide range of skiers and riders. The mountain's 673 acres are comprised of 48% Intermediate and 52% Expert terrain, providing an opportunity to challenge experienced skiers and riders.

Highlands
Aspen Highlands was introduced in 1958 and currently has 131 runs spread over 790 acres. It's best known for its 300 inches of annual snowfall and as a smorgasbord of expert and extreme terrain-there are enough steeps and bumps to satisy the thrill seeker in anyone! Be sure to check out the beautiful Highlands bowl while you're there-not only will the scenery catch your breath, but you'll enjoy some of the best open bowl terrain in Colorado.

Buttermilk
Buttermilk is renowned for its celebrated ski school and its affection for snowboarders. At 420 acres, Buttermilk is the smallest of the four and also has the most forgiving landscape for beginners. As the home of the ESPN Winter X-Games, they have also committed themselves to creating a snowboarding wonderland with a terrain park-complete with a superpipe, over 25 rails and an abundance of other features-stretching down the slopes for over two miles!

Snowmass
Snowmass, at over 3,000 skiable acres, is one of the largest resorts in Colorado. The village has everything you could want or need, including a variety of stores, restaurants and pubs to peruse when you're not on the slopes. Of course, at the Snowmass Ski Resort you may be too busy schussing down one of the 84 runs-the variety of terrain and their attention to detail in accommodating skiers of every skill level unsures that everyone will find a favorite.

Reserve an Aspen ski package and come see what all the fuss is about. All four mountains are constantly improving with new lifts, more terrain and additions to the base villages, which will make your skiing vacation to the Colorado Rocky Mountains one to remember for a long time.Read Less
