Snowmass Mountain is part of the Aspen Snowmass resorts group of mountains which includes Snowmass Mountain, Aspen Mountain (formally known as Ajax), Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk. All four resorts are located in Colorado in the United States. By having four resorts located in the same vicinity, you get access to four mountains on one lift ticket offering skiers/boarders a large variety of terrain covering 5,300 acres and close to the town of Aspen giving you access to a large amount of dining, nightlife, and shopping. Each mountain has its own personality. Shuttle buses travel between all of the mountains, the town, and almost all condominium complexes. All of this makes Aspen Snowmass one of the world’s most popular ski resorts and one of the best overall resorts rated by Ski Magazine.
