Aspen Snowmass Closing Days 2024: Celebrations to Remember

Stephanie Kroll

As we bid adieu to the ski season, Aspen Snowmass prepares to close out with flair, each mountain offering its own unique celebration. From bacon-filled festivities at Buttermilk to thrilling pond skims at Snowmass, the closing days of the 2024 season are not to be missed. Here's your guide to making the most of these bittersweet celebrations.

Buttermilk Closing Day - March 31, 2024

Kick off the closing celebrations at "The Biscuit" with Bacon Appreciation Day. This family-friendly event is a savory treat for all, featuring bacon waffles at The Cliffhouse and bacon doughnuts from ColoraDough. Wander the mountain to find bacon samples aplenty before rounding off the day with a bacon-and-beer happy hour at the newly named Buttermilk Mountain Lodge. Starting at 10:30 am, this day promises a delicious farewell to Buttermilk's ski season.

Aspen Highlands Closing Day - April 7, 2024

Aspen Highlands knows how to throw a party, and its closing day is no exception. Don your most outlandish costume and hit the slopes, making sure to hike the Highland Bowl for a high-five from the barbequing ski patrollers at the summit. Cloud Nine and Picnic Point are must-visits for champagne and stunning views. The day culminates in a dance party at the base, with the DJ spinning tunes until sunset. For a truly immersive experience, consider a stay at The Ritz-Carlton Club, right in the heart of the festivities.

Snowmass Closing Weekend - April 13 & 14, 2024

Snowmass stretches its closing celebration over an entire weekend. On April 13, Elk Camp hosts its famous end-of-season party, complete with free leis, hot tubs, and the highly anticipated pond skim. Continue the party into the evening as festivities move from Elk Camp to Base Village. The following day, soak in the last of the season with DJ sets at Ullrhof and participate in the Aspen Snowmass Gelande Quaffing Championship, a test of your beer sliding (and slamming) skills.

Aspen Mountain Closing Day - April 21, 2024

Aspen Mountain wraps up the season with historic traditions and new fun. Join the "Bump Off" race at 1 p.m. for a thrilling descent under the gondola, then dance the day away at the Sundeck with a live DJ and costume contest. The apres-ski scene heats up at Ajax Tavern and Chica, ensuring the celebrations continue well after the lifts have stopped.
