    I love Highlands the most of Aspen's 3 ski resorts. If you want shorter lines and steeper terrain, this is the mountain for you! If you want to go off-piste, be ready for a 45 min hike at 7am...

    If you get lucky and a pow pow day, just go to the Bowl and get ready for some of the best rides ever. Get into the trees for more fun and even the bumps can give you some fun (even for snowboarders)

    The best ski area on the planet. If you miss the back bowl you have not truly lived at all.

    Stop by the Loge Peak patrol hut to buy a cheap strap for carrying your skis on your back before hiking the Highlands Bowl.

    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.

    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

    On a sunny afternoon, grab a beer on the deck at Out of Bounds and watch the AVSC kids tear down Thunderbowl.

    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.

    Hit it on a windless day, or beware of icy, windswept faces

    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!

    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!

    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.
