Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
Aspen Highlands Ski Resort
Terrain options appropriate for any level - although famed for black and double-black-diamond terrain there are actually more green and blue runs.
Locals love Highland Bowl, and this year, there's more to love. Hit the Whole Bowl for a big-mountain experience that manages to keep even our Olympians and world-champ freeskiers happy.
The Whole Bowl - 70 new acres in Highland Bowl - all north-facing, steep and gladed. Additional terrain opening in the No Name Bowl area. Extension of the Olympic Bowl catwalk.
