Ski down Aspen Mountain
The most popular activity in Aspen is skiing, with a range of slopes full of powder so close it’s hard to resist the thrill of coursing down through the alpine air. While the area has many ski resorts, Aspen Mountain draws snow lovers to try their luck on its black-diamond runs and other difficult routes. Novice skiers tend to drift towards Aspen Highlands, which offers a backcountry experience and great views at every turn, or Buttermilk, which hosts the Winter X Games. Whether enrolling in ski school or taking a cross-country tour through the mountains, skiing in Aspen is great entertainment.
