Opening Day and the Aspen Way!

Ajax Gondola

Opening EARLY on Aspen Mountain! Come ski with us on November 17, 2018! Snowmass will open on November 22, 2018!


With all the recent snowfall in Aspen and Snowmass, we are optimistic about the upcoming ski season. The Ski Company announced Aspen Mountain will open five days early on November 17, 2018!!  Snowmass will open on Thanksgiving Day! What a great way to begin the holiday season with family and friends. Imagine waking up in the morning, hitting the mountain for a few hours, making a few turns, working the summer kinks out, then spending the rest of the afternoon eating turkey, watching games, and celebrating Thanksgiving. We hope to have a fabulous turn out for the opening day of the 2018-2019 ski season!  Book today for additional savings!!

Snowmass Base Village Grand Opening is December 15, 2018!


This summer, construction began on the new $600 million Snowmass Base Village project. Over the past decade, Aspen Ski Company has invested millions of dollars in and on Snowmass Mountain to make it a premier family resort. The Treehouse Kid’s Adventure Center and ski school is top notch for kids. A third Limelight Hotel will be opening its doors soon. Traditionally, the Limelight Hotel caters to locals and tourists alike. This one will feature a 5 story climbing wall, a restaurant, ski storage, and hot tubs abound. In the center of the plaza, a huge lawn area, which doubles as an ice-skating rink in the winter, will be a community gathering space.



As a Snowmass local, I’ve witnessed, firsthand, this dream become a reality. It has been something else – hats off to the construction team for keeping the area clean, organized, and hidden behind sound proof barriers. Snowmass ski resort and the mountain terrain is Aspen’s best kept secret. I really enjoy the small ski town resort vibe Snowmass exudes and am a little torn on the expansion. We will soon see what the new additions bring to this sleepy resort. This phase is scheduled to be complete on December 15, 2018. All in all, exciting things on the horizon for Snowmass!
