Thanks to Isabelle, and the crew at Aspen Snowmass, we have been working with them for several years now. If you are ever in the Colorado area, be sure to check them out!
With a vertical drop of 4,406 feet (boasting the most vertical in the USA) and 3,132 acres of terrain, the sheer volume of Snowmass demands repeat visits. After experiencing a slice of all the cruisers, glades, steeps, terrain parks and halfpipes, we guarantee you’ll be back for more.
