There are world class ski mountains that start right in a world-class town. Aspen Mt. is the only one that I am aware of. The skiing is great for intermediate to expert skiers. There are excellent restaurants at the top of the mountain as well as at the base.

We came to Aspen for the Audi FIS World Cup Finals. The town of Aspen is beautiful. People were very nice and there is great skiing. However, when attending the races we found that there was no safety controls for the grandstands. We arrived early to get seats, but some people didn't. The event staff wouldn't allow you to stand...

I was a bit intimidated by the look of the front mountain, but once you take the gondola up, much more blue terrain opens up. The view from the top lodge is stupendous!

I was in Aspen for spring break, not mine; for I am a bit long in the tooth. It was Texas and Colorado's spring break. I had expected crowds and ended up with the mountain to myself! No lift lines. Open cruiser runs. I found all the challenge I could wish for in Ajax 1000 acres .

Its very good but we felt not as nice as the other three. We were not as crazy about the mix of hill. Now it was spring skiing and it was very warm so maybe that had something to do with.

Although this daunting mountain looks like a place for "Experts Only", it has a great selection of intermediate slopes towards the top of the mountain. Don't let the steep slopes visible at the bottom keep you from enjoying the great skiing up top. Plus it is a convenient walk from most downtown hotels & condos in Aspen.

There are many good hiking trails in Aspen. Right in town. Most go up regularly the Smuggler trail. Its about 45 minutes up to a nice overlook. You can also hike up the Hunter Creek trail (along a rushing river) then down Smuggler. Figure a few hours. Hiking up Aspen mountain, to the sundeck and then talking the Gondola down... More

Ajax is my personal favorite in Aspen. If you're going to ski here be realistic with your abilities as it is a tough Mountain. Some steep blue runs here would be blacks elsewhere. Have lunch at Bonnie's mid- Mountain. Great food and save room for the homemade desserts!

Gondola & lifts move people over the mountain really quickly. Mountain facilities are excellent! We were lucky enough to arrive and have 1 day skiing & then a dump of 90cm arrived overnight. Conditions were great, people are very friendly & want you to enjoy their town & come back again. Facilities in mountain are great. Cannot wait to come... More
