Love, Love, Love! An amazing mountain with great trails. Ski School is superb. All you need is snow, snow and more snow. Find the mountain rescue Airedale, Zooey for a photo op. He is a very dignified, noble and charming creature. Learned more techniques here...More

The mountain and the surroundings are stunning to say the least. The elevation is 11000+, so be prepared. Bring sunscreen. We took the nature trail and enjoyed it. Not cheap at $25/person for the gondola trip, but there are a lot of free activities, especially...More

Ajax mountain is quite special. Between the views up the gondola, the layout of the mountain, and the grooming of the slopes, it is skiing at its finest. The position of the mountain as it ascends from the Town of Aspen is quite special and...More

First off there are no green runs here... None/Nada!! Beautiful scenery. The vertical is good. The runs are not super long except from top to bottom. Lots of great blacks, but with poor snow this season I mainly stuck to blue groomers!

Colorado is the place for fine skiing. You have many choices for snowboarding and skiing. When selecting a mountain to challenge your skiing you really need to understand the different runs each mountain offers. If your a great skier you must ski Ajax.

Accessible from the middle of town via the gondola, Aspen Mt is a great place to ski. Trails are usually well-groomed and well-marked, with three main chairlifts servicing the top of the mountain (plus goldola), and several other chairs on the mountain. While it’s nowhere...More

Unless you are seriously fit and have an hour or more to spare, I wouldn't hike up the mountain. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the top while riding the lift so walking it is not achievable for most, I think. I can't... More

Hi Karen, I don’t ski - my other half is the skier. Your best bet is to Phone a local ski shop, ask for a local who skis and have a discussion with them. Just about everyone, in most shops are Aussies who live and work... More
