Overview 

With some of the most stunning and challenging big-mountain terrain, Aspen Highlands just keeps getting better. Look for expanded terrain in the Deep Temerity area – that’s a bonus on top of the 220 acres which was already added over the last several seasons. Canopy Cruiser, located to the right of Steeplechase and below Hyde Park, will give 18 additional acres of gladed skiing/riding. Also not to be missed: Take a snowcat ride to the ridge where you can hike up and drop into the Highland Bowl for the ultimate in-bounds backcountry experience.
