Some of the most challenging big-mountain skiing and snowboarding terrain in North America can be found right here in our back yard. Aspen Mtn and Snowmass Mtn open November 25th, then Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk are scheduled to open for the 2010-2011 ski season on December 11th. Lifts open at 9 AM sharp.
Buttermilk is a great beginners mountain and is home to one of the best ski schools and children’s programs in the country. Today Buttermilk is best known for hosting the ESPN Winter X-Games through 2012. With its wide-open trails and infamous terrain park, this mountain offers something for everyone.
Aspen Highlands has been the local favorite for over 50 years and counting. Its stunning 360-degree panoramic views of the Maroon Bells and expert terrain make this mountain a must-ride for the ski season. Hike the 12,392 feet to the summit of the Highland Bowl to experience the greatest inbounds backcountry blitz the Elk Mountains have to offer.
Local snowboard instructor Justin Whitney said, “If you want to ski where the locals ski, ride the Oly Bowl. Most people don’t know about it, unless you live here, but it’s one of the best spots for backcountry skiing in Aspen.”
The Oly Bowl is located on Aspen Highlands. Getting there: Take the Cloud 9 lift to the top, then go up on Loge Peak. Cruise down on skiers left. Enjoy.
