ASPEN/SNOWMASS—Snowmass, Aspen Mountain and Aspen Highlands (Buttermilk is the fourth) were recently ranked among the top 20 resorts in North America and the magnificent Snowmass Ski resort was ranked the eighth best overall resort by SKI readers. “Can one resort be all things to all skiers? Snowmass tries,” writes local journalist Cindy Hirschfeld in the SKI magazine. Snowmass has plenty of acreage (more than 3,100 acres and rising, due to this season’s Burnt Mountain expansion), long well-groomed cruisers, and a growing reputation for its extreme terrain. With its kid-focused ski school and facilities, as well as a vast inventory of slopeside condos, “You couldn’t ask for a better family resort,” one reader commented in the survey. Time to plan your holiday in Snowmass and book your accommodation and ski equipment!
