Ski Aspen - 8 Night Packages

The philosophy of Ski Aspen revolves around guest service, guest experience and affordability. And despite its 20 plus years experience in this iconic ski town, Ski Aspen are continually refining the form and function of their tours and the service they provide to you. They accomplish this by ensuring they go above and beyond your expectations. Your wants and needs are their highest priority and this is reflected in every facet of their tours.

Ski Aspen is a service company not a tour operator and provide a fully guided and instructional on-snow program. Their staff are on hand 24 hours a day and have a guide to skier ratio of 1:6. While personalised group skiing is their core product, their tours are renowned for much more.

A holiday with Ski Aspen combines many elements – incomparable snow conditions with a huge range of activities both on and off snow. The town provides great cuisine, culture, environment and sport. They add the finishing touches to improve your skiing, foster camaraderie and create lasting memories. Spend your après ski time at one of the many bars or relax and rejuvenate in a therapeutic spa, maybe even The Aspen Club. Add to this the perfectly located accommodation, regular après activities, and the best skiing conditions on the planet.

Founded in 1995, Ski Aspen now enjoys a guest return rate of around 60% each year.

Who Are The Tours Suitable For?

The Aspen Ski Tours are suitable for singles, couples and groups and are an all-inclusive package that run over two weeks. During this time guests will participate in a fully guided and instructional on-snow program and on these days will ski in small groups with their guide/instructor for five hours each day. Lots of miles being the main focus with instruction included along the way. Video analysis sessions are also very popular with guests.

For couples, it doesn’t matter if you and your partner ski at different standards - the great thing about this program is that guests are divided into groups based on speed, ability and daring. And with a total of four additional free days included in each tour, couples and friends still get plenty of time to ski with each other.

The Ski Aspen Tour is a very social experience with a host of après activities included in the package. These tours are as much about meeting new ski friends as they are about skiing and riding the incredible four mountains that make up Aspen Snowmass.
