With breathtaking 360-degree views of the Maroon Bells and an abundance of expert terrain as well as groomed cruisers, it’s no wonder Aspen Highlands has been the locals’ favorite for over 50 years.
Follow the sun! Ski or ride Goldenhorn, Thunderbowl or Steeplechase in the morning when the morning sun is hitting, then head to the Olympic Bowl side of the mountain when the afternoon sun hits.
Free shuttles run between Highlands and Aspen all day long, and there are free shuttles direct from the Snowmass Village Mall to Highlands in the morning, returning to the Mall in the afternoon.
Highlands also has plenty of wide-open, screaming groomers, with two favorites being Thunderbowl and Golden Horn. Ride up the Thunderbowl triple and rip laps!
Be sure to being something to carry your skis/boards on your back for the hike up the Highland Bowl.
Drink plenty of water and make sure you've eaten enough when you plan on hiking the Highkands Bowl. Nothing is worse than bonking on the hike.
If you're an advanced skier make sure to hike the bowl. You can pick up ski straps at the ski patrol at the top of the mountain for a nominal fee.
best kept secret of Colorado- the Aspen Highlands in general, but The Aspen Highlands Bowl is SO sick!
End of the day? Craving powder? Head to the Boomerang glades and Shred It!
The best ski area on the planet. If you miss the back bowl you have not truly lived at all.
By far my favorite of the 4 hills, and if you're feeling gutsy, take a trip to the Highland Bowl. Its well worth the hike.
Don't hike the bowl without picking up some straps ($8) from the Aspen Highlands Ski Patrol cabin at to top of the Loge and Deep Teremity lifts.

On a sunny afternoon, grab a beer on the deck at Out of Bounds and watch the AVSC kids tear down Thunderbowl.
Hit it on a windless day, or beware of icy, windswept faces
If u can make the hike to the top og highland bowl...grueling but worth it!
During the winter months, be sure to hike the bowl at least once. It's about a 40 minute hike, but well worth the fresh powder you get to ski all day! Also, don't miss the Highlands Closing Party!
Get ready For The bowl!!! Perfect in powder days :D #Shreading
THE place for off-piste skiing in Aspen
Stop by the Loge Peak patrol hut to buy a cheap strap for carrying your skis on your back before hiking the Highlands Bowl.
Wear warm clothes!
Don't ski here. Aspen highland ski patrol is super lazy. The closed a huge number of runs at 2 pm. On a day with great weather, sunset 5 hours away and all lifts open. Waste of a ski pass
Love the pre-made wraps at the Caffe Siena in the Ritz and their lattes are awesome!! $10 ttl
Good wide runs, especially for boarders.
Good morning Aspen!
John borie's band played today... If you missed it, come back next Saturday!
