Looks like there will be plenty of fresh pow for your trip. Looks like Snowmass may get up to 2 feet.

It's been a few years since I went there.. But will agree snowmass was m favorite, but if u like park and big features if x games course is still up like it was when I was there buttermilk was a blast... I only rode those 2.. And I rode snowmass 3 days and buttermilk 1.. We stayed right there in the middle of snowmass.. Still to this day best time I've ever had riding.. It was when I still lived in Iowa and first trip to Colorado.. First real experience with some fresh pow.. First day rode snowmass was awesome.. 2nd day went to buttermilk with 1 ft of fresh pow and was mind blowing coming from Midwest lol.. The next day we got about 2 ft and rode snowmass again and funniest day ever got first chair on a ton of pow.. And last day we just stayed at snowmass again because there was still a bunch that we hadn't rode yet.. That trip was a big help in choosing college's lol.. And moved to Colorado right after highschool.. 25 now and still like a little kid everytime I hit the mountains

Just updating. Today was my last day, we did two days at snow mass and one at highlands.the highlands bowl was amazing, if anyone was wondering I was the guy crawling up the mountain on Friday because my ankle is still slightly sprained haha. The view was amazing, but I was also scared from that height and the narrow passes. I maned up and hiked it even though it was painful as shit on my ankle but I had to keep going.i would say that was just as scary as sky diving, if not more because of the straight down rock falls. The tree runs were amazing at both mountains and overall this trip blew my previous two away. My only complaint is all the god damn moguls that kill your legs. My ankles were throbbing on some runs and got very swollen after the day. Either way I would recommend that trip to everyone

Snowmass is definitely my favorite but for the type of terrain you're looking for I would recommend Aspen Highlands or Aspen mountain.

But hey, the lift passes cover all 4 mountains and they are all within 15 minutes of driving from each other so realistically you could try out at least 2 in one day.
