Full review

Skied Snowmass, Aspen Highlands, and Aspen Mountains. Did not ski Buttermilk, as all advanced skiers, though heard good things about it for beginners. We found skiing conditions to be 5 stars, as we got 12-18 inches of fresh powder every night we were there! Enjoyed the Highlands and Snowmass the most, but was nice to ski Aspen Mountain and walk around town afterward. As an "adult family" we have skied Utah (Alta/Snowbird/Park City), Jacksonville Wy, and Stowe, and this, for conditions was the best yet! Also wife does not ski and the town of Aspen provided entertainment for her to enjoy. Also bus system made getting around a non-issue. Bottom line, we would all go back! Only downside was distance and difficulty getting to Aspen. Flew to Denver and drove (or took Epic van). You really do not need car as long as you are close to bus route. Leaving ran into avalanches, and missed flight, but that gave us opportunity to ski Copper. All +++++ but distance from Denver!
