Whip Jones, father of her skiing legacy, a visionary and passionate entrepreneur purchased the land in 1954 and opened the ski area hiring Stein Eriksen, the Norwegian Olympic Gold medalist who founded the ski school in 1958 and bought it instant recognition. Fred Iselin former Swiss National Ski Team racer took up the Highlands baton in 1960s when he became the ski school director.  Highlands has its own charm. One of four prestigious & unsurpassed skiing experiences in Aspen

Known for its Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness, one of the great scenic beauties and revered wilderness of the world. Basking in awe-inspiring views of Pyramid Peak and the burgundy-hued Maroon Bells, great stone prows cleaving the Rocky Mountain skies. Also home to the double black slopes of Steeplechase and Highland bowl representing some of the most demanding lift served terrain. Highlands is engulfed in grandeur, serenity and small resort charm. 32 Estate townhomes nest around the village fringes in brilliantly conceived cloverleaf clusters, designed by Dennis Wedlick capped by steep snow-shedding roofs with wide eaves. On the Maroon Creek side, homes are sheltered in sweet smelling firs, spruces & aspens, views altering between willow valley’s untrammeled wilds and the gleam of Willow Peak.

From the homes perched on Thunderbowl, a sweeping alpine panorama, Buttermilk Mountain, the lush Roaring Fork Valley all the way to Woody Creek, with its quaking crown of aspens.
