WHAT SETS ASPEN HIGHLANDS APART?

  • Highland Bowl - an in-bounds backcountry experience
  • The view of Maroon Bells & Pyramid Peak
  • The duct-tape-to-diamonds mentality of its biggest fans

VISITORS LOVE

  • The sense of discovery at every turn: uncrowded cruisers, long and challenging steeps, and untracked sections in the bowls.
  • Fondue and raclette at Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro — a rite of passage.

     

LOCALS LOVE
