– Aspen Mountain – located in downtown Aspen
– AspenHighlands – steeper, southwest of downtown, fewer crowd
– Snowmass – our personal favorite for snowboarding
– Buttermilk – also excellent for snowboarding
The Roaring Fork Valley (Aspen, Carbondale, Basalt, Glenwood Springs corridor) has AMAZING FREE public transportation. There are many stops to get you where you need to go, including around town, to the ski resorts, restaurants, and lodging.
Pablo and I pack two bags each. We each take a medium-sized duffel bag (or carry-on suitcase) and a snowboard bag.
Having these two bags allows us to easily maneuver public transportation and walk around the airports.
