Located in Snowmass Village near Aspen, Colorado, Aspen Snowmass is a four-mountain destination that offers world-class skiing in a pristine environment that's teeming with natural beauty. Fortunately, slopes exist for all skill levels, including those who have never so much as strapped on a pair of skis and sailed down a mountain on newly fallen powder.

Beginner slopes on Aspen Snowmass are ideal learning environments for fledgling snow sports enthusiasts because the area attracts top-quality ski instructors from all over the world. Both private and group lessons are available for beginners of all ages. Aspen Snowmass also has packages tailored specifically for beginners that include savings on lift passes and equipment rentals.

Buttermilk Ski Area

Known for its family-friendly amenities, the Buttermilk Ski area features some of the best slopes on Aspen Snowmass. West Buttermilk is suitable for beginners, while Main Buttermilk is ideal for those who have mastered the basics and are ready for slightly more challenging terrain, but the Tiehack is best left to experts.


Snowmass is the largest of the four ski areas, comprising slightly more than 3,100 acres. Gently sloped Assay Hill is a favorite of many beginners, and there is a small area located at the bottom of Elk Camp that has been designated specifically for use by beginners.

All of the beginner programs found at Aspen Snowmass use a unique instruction technique called Terrain Based Learning, which is based on familiarizing beginners with mountain ski conditions using custom built snow features.
