The Ski Week has planned some incredible activities & awesome adventures to immerse you in the local culture as much as possible. Where applicable, make sure you sign up for activities in advance so you don’t miss out. Think now, not when. Book and Pay in Advance Bubbles and Brunch What’s better than a hot and hearty breakfast on a fresh winter morning? Well, in our view, pairing that meal with champagne! Join us at Gwyn’s, for bubbles & brunch. Trust us, there is no better place on the mountain to raise a glass to the local delicacies, not to mention that spectacular view of Aspen Snowmass! Tickets available on your TSW booking profile. Cost: $100 Other details: Includes a choice from a mouthwatering brunch menu and mimosas! When: Friday at 10am. Note: This is for the week and weekend guests.

Oktoberfest

Shed your outer layers and embrace the traditional Bavarian garb - that means one thing and one thing only, Oktoberfest is here! Join us at an authentic private 3-course dinner and raise a stein to the good times! Sing german drinking songs with a full stomach and fuller heart, and celebrate a week of new friends, epic victories, and world class adventures. Tickets available on your TSW booking profile. Cost: $50 Other details: Includes a 3-course dinner, stein of beer or glass of wine and dancing till your heart’s content! When: Tuesday Note: This is for the Week guests only.

Yoga

Onsite yoga sessions produced by the team behind Lululemon Aspen, prepared with the active skier in mind and designed to get you warmed and ready for a day of adventure among the elements. Make a connection with your new wellness friends and you might find yourself exploring entirely new areas of the mountain after the session. Cost: Free. Mats will be provided on site. When: Thursday Friday and Saturday morning @ The Timberline.

First Tracks

Have you ever wished you could have a mountain of fresh powder and perfect corduroy to yourself? Our First Tracks experience will make your wish come true! Let The Ski Week crew get you out on the mountain while the rest of the resort is still waking up. You know what they see... the early-bird get the worm. Or in our case, the freshest powder. Note: This is for the Weekers as oppose to the Weekenders.

Pond Skim

Prepare for the ultimate challenge. The crowd pleasure. The pond skim requires a combination of skill, style and showmanship. You have only one goal: waterski across the pond and stick the landing on the other side. Gather all the courage you can muster, your crew are rooting for you and the MC is calling your name, this is your time to claim the throne. One false move and you will end up very wet, but smiling nevertheless. Will you make it?

Ski Teams

Need a ski buddy for the day? Our TSW guides will show you around the mountain, get you familiar with the slopes, and show you our favourite spots. Join one of our teams until lunch.

Other Activities Include:

    • Ski School
    • Wax Clinic
    • Skating
    • Ajax Day Trip (Aspen Mountain)

Onsite Themes

Après-ski chic (all après-ski parties)
To honour the pioneers in the great American legacy of skiing, we dress for retro vibes on Aspen Highlands, culminating in a finale 80s Après Ski party. This means vintage ski gear, rad 80s vibes, denim shorts, woolen sweaters and fast sunglasses. The thrift shops in Aspen are a literal goldmine, and the modern internet is a hotbed of outfit sourcing inspiration. Remember to apply zinc, and happy hunting! See here for some style inspiration!
Oktoberfest (Tuesday Night)
In keeping with long standing tradition, we choose to wear only traditional german celebratory garb for the Oktoberfest.
