From the lux lifestyle to the killer terrain, skiers associate the iconic destination ski resort of Aspen Snowmass with so many attributes, not the least of which is its terrain park offering. In fact, it's that very aspect that's top of mind to all the ESPN Winter X Games' athletes and attendees who annually descend upon Buttermilk—a mountain that also hosts a slew of other freeski events and boasts 100+ features across seven parks with more than 3 miles of dedicated park runs.
Buttermilk is also the scene for the largest snow half pipe ever built: Red Bull's Super Doublepipe, constructed for the brand's Signature Series. Not to be outdone, Snowmass is the region's other main event when it comes to park and pipe. OnTheSnow readers call Snowmass the spot for when they're looking to "mix in a few park laps with the best day of pow turns.”
Park goers can perfect skills through Snowmass' progression that includes roughly 100 features, with a 22-foot Zaugg-cut superpipe in the mix. Among the mountain's additional offerings in the terrain park department is its Bud Light Big Rail Friday Park competition and free Terrain Park Boot Camp open to beginners of all ages.
