Lift tickets and ski lessons should be booked in advance, especially if visiting during the peak season.
We visited in March, but you can have a skiing adventure here anytime there's snow on the mountain.
A day in Aspen during the ski season is all about hanging out on the slopes. Start your day with delicious diner fare at Poppycocks Cafe, then let the kids burn off some energy at Wagner Park Playground. Now it’s time to hit the slopes! After a few runs on Buttermilk Mountain, head to the Aspen Fire Department and Museum, where aspiring firefighters can learn from the pros. Enjoy a healthy dinner at 520 Grill, and you’ve got yourself a perfect day in Aspen for kids.
