An IKON Trip with a Lift ticket available as an additional option

With its impressive terrain ranging from wide-open groomers to playful glades and gullies to steep, backcountry-like runs, Snowmass is a favorite for skiers and snowboarders of all levels and terrain preferences.  Offering a ton of terrain for the intermediate skier, the blue cruisers at Snowmass are meticulously manicured every night (and some are groomed at noon every day).  Challenge-seekers can test themselves in high-alpine bowls with steep pitches and cliffs, tight trees to navigate, and fresh powder throughout the more than 3,300 acres of skiable terrain at Snowmass.

Pandora's - New Terrain at Aspen Mountain

Although we're staying at Snowmass, you might want to ski a day or more at one of the other three resorts that are all reachable with the free bus system: Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk.  You might want to check out the new Pandora's terrain at Aspen Mountain that's scheduled to open this winter:  Beginning in the 2023-2024 season, the area, which has been skied by a small number of people for years, will now be accessed via a high-speed quad and will include 1,220 vertical feet of groomed trails and glades ranging from intermediate to advanced terrain (plus an extension of favorite expert runs such as Walsh’s, Kristi, Hyrup’s). This will be Aspen Mountain’s first significant addition since the opening of the Silver Queen Gondola in December of 1985. Click the link to read all about it!

Our trip includes 7 nights (Sat-Sat) in deluxe hotel rooms at the slopeside Stonebridge Inn with daily breakfast buffet, round-trip air from Washington to Denver (details below), and ground transfers.  Baggage handling is included.

Stonebridge Inn

Selected three years in a row as one of the 50 Top Ski Resort Hotels in the United States by Condé Nast Traveler magazine, the Stonebridge Inn offers comfortable, modern hotel rooms in the style of a rustic lodge.  Located in the heart of Snowmass Village, just steps from the slopes and within walking distance to the Snowmass Base Village, it offers an intimate alpine escape, framed by aspen groves and the 14,000-foot peaks of the Rockies.  The hotel's Artisan Restaurant is one of Snowmass Village’s premier dining experiences.  Cozy up by the fire in the lounge, relax at the bar, or sit down to one of the finest dining experiences in Snowmass.  Experience the convenience of a ski resort in the atmosphere of a boutique hotel.

Hotel amenities include a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, fitness room, sauna, Internet access, on-site laundry facilities, and a ski locker room.  Complimentary shuttles are available to take us around the village.

Queen/Queen Room

Our Q/Q rooms feature extensive amenities including mini refrigerators, coffee makers, and hair dryers.

Single Rooms:  Listed price is for double occupancy; add $1,550 for the single supplement if you want a room to yourself.

Ikon Pass Benefits:  If you're planning to ski at more than one "Ikon" resort this winter, an Ikon Pass may be a better value than the available group lift tickets (see below); it may depend when you buy your pass as prices will increase as winter gets closer.

  • A Full Ikon Pass gives you 7 days at Aspen/Snowmass.
  • An Ikon Base Pass has no benefits at Aspen/Snowmass.
  • An Ikon Base Plus Pass gives you 5 days at Aspen/Snowmass.

Ikon Passes must be individually purchased (not through the club).  You may purchase Ikon Passes directly from Ikon, but we suggest that you visit our Epic & Ikon Pass page to explore the promotional offers that may be available from our tour operators.

Ikon Lift Reservations:  Skiers using an Ikon Pass will be required to make reservations for their ski days by logging into their Ikon Pass account at  You should make your reservations as soon as you sign up for the trip as daily space is limited and could sell out. 

On July 27th, Aspen-Snowmass announced that Ikon reservations will become available on August 1st, 2023:
