Celebrate the End of this Epic Ski Season with Us!

The Apres Festival 2019

End this EPIC Snow Season with Area Events & Celebrations!


Après Music Series April 5-7, 2019

The winter ski season has been epic! Our mountains experienced record snowfall this year. Locals and tourists alike raved about the amazing time had while skiing, riding, and playing in the powder.

Spring has arrived, the sun is shining, warmer temperatures are upon us, and the season is extended. What better way to celebrate then with the ultimate Après party?! Combining live music, skiing and sunshine for 3 days is simply brilliant - thank you Aspen Snowmass! Introducing The Après Festival, a brand new 3-day spring music festival at the base of Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colorado.


The Bands

Our local music venue, the Belly Up, has joined forces with Aspen Snowmass in a series of events which run from April 5-7. Headlining this amazing event, Saturday and Sunday night, is a Colorado favorite, straight out of the Rocky Mountains, The String Cheese Incident! Umphrey’s McGee kicks the party off headlining Friday night. The fun continues all three nights with guest performances by Moon Taxi, The Main Squeeze, Southern Avenue, and ALO.

With numerous pass choices for this event there is something for everyone. Après 3-day passes are available or Après single day passes are available. You may add a lift ticket to a day or two, it is up to you. Fans are buying tickets now! Don’t miss out on this ultimate, springtime, Colorado experience.

But wait, there’s more! Ski or ride for live music on the mountain from 12-2 pm, at Ajax, Snowmass, Highlands and Buttermilk before the festival begins! Bands include Chain Station, Jon Cumming and Bunch of Strangers, Meadow Mountain and The Sweet Lillies. Check The Après Schedule for details as they are posted.


Stay at one of our downtown Aspen vacation rental condos and you have easy transportation to Buttermilk.


End of Season Celebrations are set but closing days may be extended.


Festivities at Aspen Highlands are happening April 14, 2019 but the lifts may remain open a bit longer if the snow keeps falling… Highlands offers “Party at the base of Highlands” full of wacky costumes and a DJ. Or if hiking the bowl is your passion, join the Aspen Highlands ski patrol for their annual closing day tradition of BBQ at the top of the bowl, (weather permitting).


Snowmass steps up to the plate with their end of the year celebration on Saturday, April 20, 2019.

  • Elk Camp Surf & Snow Beach Party happens April 20th, ski down the mountain in your bathing suit!
  • Gondola foot passes up to Elk Camp are FREE!
  • Then head down to Snowmass Base Village for an after party with swimming pools, sand and beach balls. 


Aspen Mountain completes the celebration with an 80’s Prom Party on the Sundeck, Sunday April 21, 2019.
