Uphilling has quickly risen to popularity in the ski community. Instead of a leisurely ride on the Elk Camp Gondola or chairlifts, you can earn your turns traversing up the mountain on alpine touring skis or splitboards. Aspen/Snowmass allows uphilling all day, 7 days/week. This workout with a reward is an awesome way to change up your on-mountain experience but comes with rules to ensure everyone’s safety. Our rules are put in place to minimize conflicts between uphill and downhill traffic on the slopes and maximize everyone’s safety and enjoyment.
Please be aware that no ski area services, including Ski Patrol, are available during hours that the ski areas are not open for business. Please call 911 in the event of an emergency during non-operational hours. You are responsible for your own safety at all times while on Aspen Skiing Company property.
Please familiarize yourself with these uphilling policies.
Respecting these rules preserves this privilege. Failure to follow these rules could result in the loss of skiing and riding privileges.
Lessons and equipment rentals are available at all four Aspen/Snowmass mountains. For more information click here.
