    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.

    Cameron W · January 15, 2014

    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

    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.

    Alastair Tse · February 26, 2012

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

    Good morning Aspen!

    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.

    Alexander Lloyd · January 9, 2012

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

    best kept secret of Colorado- the Aspen Highlands in general, but The Aspen Highlands Bowl is SO sick!

    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.

    Aspen Snowmass · December 7, 2010

    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.

    Aspen Snowmass · December 7, 2010

    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!

    Don't miss Aspen Highlands closing day - it's the biggest party on snow! Read more

    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!

    Aaron Stel · April 20, 2010

    Be sure to being something to carry your skis/boards on your back for the hike up the Highland Bowl.

    Dave Amirault · March 21, 2010

    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.

    Dave Amirault · February 15, 2010
  • Dave A.

    End of the day? Craving powder? Head to the Boomerang glades and Shred It!
