For a private on-resort ski experience, uphill skiing at Aspen Snowmass provides an incredible socially distanced workout. Uphill skiing is permitted during operating hours on Buttermilk, Snowmass, Aspen and Highlands mountains. Additionally, skinners may download on the Elk Camp Gondola. Last October, Aspen completed a multi-year planning initiative to position itself as the uphill recreation destination of North America. “We see this area becoming a hub for uphilling, not only as a draw for users, but for the industry itself, as a test center,” said Steve Skadron, the former Aspen mayor who spearheaded the effort.
