RESORTS IN THE AREA

Rising from the vibrant heart of downtown Aspen, this is where it all began in 1946 with the single-seat chair, which immediately became the longest lift in the world. That mentality of “go big or go home” has always been the foundation of the mountain they still call “Ajax.”

Known for hosting the World Cup Finals, Ajax is not a mountain for beginners. The terrain is best suited for intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders.
