Aspen Mountain, the flagship mountain of the Aspen/Snowmass resort complex, rises imposingly out of the heart of downtown Aspen to 11,212 feet. This 673-acre mountain is known for steeps and bumps and is a favorite among upper-intermediate and advanced skiers. For over fifty years, skiers have looked to the steep slopes above town for some of the most challenging skiing in the world. Aspen Mountain is one of the few ski areas in the country which does not permit snowboards.
