Aspen Highlands has been the preferred ski area among Aspen residents for more than 50 years. If you're looking for a challenge, this is the ski area for you: more than half of the trails here were carved with advanced and expert skiers in mind, with routes like Golden Horn, Highland Bowl and Olympic Bowl offering stomach-dropping descents.

Skiers love the local feel of this mountain and say it's a bonus that it's rarely crowded. Travelers note the majority of terrain is definitely geared toward advanced skiers who know how to handle steep pitches and deep powder. When it comes to mealtime, previous visitors strongly recommend dining at Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro, which offers breathtaking views of the Maroon Bells.

Aspen Highlands is located about 3 miles southwest of Aspen and welcomes skiers and snowboarders from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day between mid-December and mid-April. Lift passes vary in price and are valid at all four Aspen ski areas. If you're visiting during the winter holidays, consider purchasing lift passes in advance and getting an early start to beat the crowds. You can also save money by purchasing passes online at the Aspen-Snowmass website.
