A DIFFERENT KIND OF SKI EXPERIENCE
On the snow
Our guests have full access to our renowned on-snow ski program. With some of Aspen’s most qualified and experienced ski-pros, you’ll explore all 4 of Aspen’s mountains while getting as much or as little tuition as you want. Our group sizes are capped at six guests and offer you an experience we’re sure you won’t have had anywhere else. And if you want to focus on a specific area of your skiing, we’ll tailor workshops to help you reach you goals quickly.
No body understand the Aspen aprés scene like us. We know exactly where to go and when for you to get the most our of your after-skiing experience. And we have a number of free aprés events for you to join. If you’re looking for the most sociable ski experience, you just found it.
We know through feedback from thousands of guests that our blend of on-snow action, aprés events and free days works extremely well for a wide audience. Our 10 night ski Aspen experiences offer you 6 on-snow days with our team, leaving you plenty of free time to explore Aspen’s town or re-visit your favourite mountain. Our goal has always been to provide the most inclusive experiences while offering lots of time for number one.
Something that our returning guests look forward to each year. Let us develop your skiing skills and help you both on and off the snow to reach the next level. Our 10 night experiences will offer you 2 video analysis sessions to help you see and work on your skiing.

WHAT SETS US APART?
We’ve created the following itinerary as an example of what to expect on our 10 night ski experiences.
Day 1: Arrival Day
You’ve arrived in Aspen. Welcome. It’s not a challenging flight from the UK. A short domestic flight from many locations in the US sees you landing on the same day that you took off. Our team meet you as your plane arrives at Aspen airport and transfer you to your accommodation in our private cars. For the rest of the da you can relax, settle in and prepare for the ultimate Aspen ski experience.
Day 2: Welcome & Orientation
Today begins with a group meeting of all guests on the trip. Meet our full team, other guests and collect your lift pass and any other resort info. We’ll also assist anyone who wants to hire equipment or choose their brand new FREE skis right away. It’s an exciting morning for everyone.
In the afternoon we’ll take anyone for a warm up ski on Aspen Mountain. Get your ski legs back with some cruisey runs and we’ll have our hosting team provide you a mountain orientation.
Tonight our partners Aspen Sports offer a welcome event with free drinks, appetisers and exclusive in-store deals and advise for our guests only.
Day 3: The on-snow program begins – Skiing Buttermilk
Our in-resort hosts take you to your first on-snow day with our ski-pros at Buttermilk. You’ll spend today warming up and getting into the Aspen way of skiing. Empty slopes and no lift cues will open your eyes to an entirely new ski experience. Today you’ll also begin to see why our on-snow program is so unique. Unlike any regular ski school program, our groups offer full flexibility. Today begins by dividing groups on ability, speed and daring and with group sizes capped at 6, you get as much or as little attention as you want. From today you’ll have the opportunity to push yourself in one group or take it easy in another. It’s this flexibility that has helped us achieve a 75% guest return rate each year.
After skiing today you’ll return home, then prepare for another welcome drinks provided by our property team at Frias Properties of Aspen.
Day 4: Skiing Aspen Highlands
Today we’re off to Highlands where you’ll meet our ski-pros.
