Spending 3 days in Aspen in January

Hey guys. I'm wondering what we should stick to when we go considering we're only there for a long weekend. Should it be...

Snowmass
Aspen
Aspen Highlands

Skip Buttermilk?

The only reason to go to Buttermilk is if you want to ride park. Otherwise, it's pretty much a learning mountain.

Ok cool thanks. Do you think it's worth going to Aspen Highlands then? Especially if we skip Highland Bowl?

Aspen Highlands is steep all the way around. Highlands Bowl is the showcase terrain, but there is a lot of other stuff. That one is up to you.

If I had 3 days, I would do 2 at Snowmass and 1 at Aspen Highlands.

You would skip Aspen if you've never been?
