World's Smallest Big City

Legendary for a Reason
How it all got (re)started. With four towering mountains, Ajax (Aspen Mountain), Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snwomass, there is something for all. Snowmass is home to 3,000 family friendly acres, amazing steeps and cliff skiing, and the longest runs in North America. Highlands is the locals mountain, with Highlands Bowl offering up the closest thing you will get to Alaskan descents. Buttermilk is of course home to the Winter X-Games, and you can ride the park. Ajax, or Aspen Mountain, is a tightly packed panoply of goodness. Mines, shrines, bumps, dumps, and it all drops you off right in the middle of town, so bring your bathing suits and go get strait in that hot tub with a glass of Champaign. Of course, the day does not stop there. Aspen is home to world class dining & nightlife, so bring your dancing shoes.
Think Aspen is just a winter wonderland? Guess again. The summer is locals favorite season. As the saying goes, you come for the winter, but if you stay for a summer, youll never leave. We can confirm.

Beautiful weather every day, a vast trail system for hiking, biking, and running. Three sensational rivers for fishing, rafting, kayaking, and SUPing. Outdoor dining and 9 pm sunsets. And that’s before you remember that Aspen is home to the Food & Wine Classic, The Aspen Institute, The Aspen Music School, The Santa Fe Ballet, Jazz Aspen / Snowmass, The Aspen Physics Center, Aspen Entrepreneurs, The Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, Aspen T.R.E.E., The Motherload Volleyball Classic, Ruggerfest, and oh so much more. There is not a place on the planet you can pack so much into one day under the shadow of such beauty. Period.
