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?
Parade of Nations
Fly your country colours and follow the music alongside 50 other nationalities as part of the world’s most diverse community of skiers, snowboarders and travellers. We guarantee you’ll leave the mountains with countless new friends, all hungry for adventure and ready to ski the world.
**Remember to bring your country flag!
Torch Light Decent
Grab a torch & shine bright in Aspen. Join us on the Torchlight Descent, lighting up the mountains on our way down to the best Après around.
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.
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.

Slope-side Disco: For the Pool Hangout
At TSW, we like to follow the call of the disco ball, because we know it leads us to the most fun! Slope-side disco is brand new to TSW and we are so excited to pack up our flares and take them to see the beauty of Aspen this winter. Think studio 54, Bowie self expression, Grace Jones glam, sparkles, sequins and psychedelic patterns - an unforgettable evening of cabaret as we dance the night away under the disco ball.
80s Après-ski: For Basecamp Closing Party
Let's go back to the days of metal bands and big hair, grab some leg warmers, muscle shirts, or acid wash to wear. Grab those leg warmers and tease up that hair, tonight is the night for acid wash wear! Think Cyndi Lauper, think neon leotards, think the most epic 80s après-ski party… need we say more?
Oktoberfest (Tuesday Night)
In keeping with long standing tradition, we choose to wear only traditional German celebratory garb for the Oktoberfest.
