Entertainment & Activities
Our favorite mountain because of the variety of terrain for all abilities from beginner to expert and the on-mountain dining options are exceptional. The Meadows atop of the gondola is perfect for Never-Evers or Rarely-Evers to earn their ski legs while the experts have the Cirques and the Wall to get their adrenaline fix. And for those that want a park experience, Snowmass is hands down the best for the variety for all levels of experience. Snowmass Mountain is also home to Elk Camp Ullr Nights. A nighttime winter wonderland with classic winter activities, such as ice skating, sledding, snowbiking, guided snowshoe, and tubing.

This is where the locals bring their kiddos for the overall easier terrain at West Buttermilk. But, the locals love skinning or hiking up Tiehack on a sunny afternoon when taking a break from skiing/boarding. Buttermilk is also home to the Winter X Games.

What the locals call 'Ajax' this mountain is in the heart of Aspen. On a powder day you'll find most of us taking a few turns before heading into the office or on our lunch break. Stunning views in all directions and off the top of the gondola is a perfect place to hike or snowmobile on Little Annie Road. Ajax (Aspen Mountain) Was also selected to host the 2017 men's and women's Audi FIS Ski World Cup Finals March 15-19. The Finals will be the first outside Europe since 1997 and the return of men’s World Cup in Aspen for first time since 2001.

Know as the locals mountain for its more challenging terrain and the infamous Highlands Bowl. Also known for Cloud Nine Bistro, an on-mountain dining experience straight out of the Alps with views that rival no other. And, of course, 'Highlands' is known for the legendary closing day apres ski party and Schneetag, a ridiculous event in which teams of four descend the slope in a homemade craft and try to cross a pond at the base.

For 125 years, the story of the Wheeler Opera House has been the story of the town. Through boom and bust and boom again, both building and town have proven a resiliency and tenacity that have defied the odds. Now, well over a century after the silver boom came and went through Colorado, the house is the envy of theatres big and small around the world. The Wheeler is privileged to partner with such internationally-renowned groups as the Aspen Institute, Aspen Film, National Public Radio, the Aspen Writers’ Foundation, National Geographic, Mountainfilm In Telluride, the Aspen Center for Physics, and of course the Aspen Music Festival and School.
