We are good intermediate skiers of an advanced age (75yrs) who felt comfortable skiing the blues at Buttermilk and Snowmass. Not so much at Ajax but we loved riding the gondola and taking in the view. Spectacular. $25/pp and $10 goes to food at the...More

I knew I would love Snowmass (and I do!). Ajax, however, took me by surprise. The mountain provides an impressive variety of beautiful otherworldly terrain. The long-lasting top-to-bottom trajectory is followed by a refreshing 14-minute gondola ride to warm-up/cool-down. And how magical is it to...More

Can be a little busy and very steep runs. Also can be icy on most of the runs but still fun especially with the great bars down below. Check out the Little Nells bars

Wow! It doesn't get much better than this! After two days on Aspen Mountain, the report is two thumbs up! Day one was a snow day, with ample powder and few people. Day two brought the crowds, and the powder was replaced with some played...More

Unless you are seriously fit and have an hour or more to spare, I wouldn't hike up the mountain. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the top while riding the lift so walking it is not achievable for most, I think. I can't... More
