Buttermilk Mountain
The best ski spots, terrain and trails on Buttermilk Mountain, home to the ESPN Winter X Games, to go to on  your Colorado ski vacation at the Ritz Carlton Residence Club in Aspen Highlands, Colorado.

Buttermilk Mountain, home to the ESPN Winter X Games, is actually one of the best learning mountains in the country. It's perfectly groomed, gentle slopes and excellent ski and snowboard school make it perfect for families and beginners. However, Buttermilk Mountain does have something for the experts. The legendary Crazy Train Terrain Park, tellingly named after an Ozzy Osbourne song, boasts a 22-foot superpipe. If you're not at that level quite yet, head over to the Panda Pipe, or the ski/snowboard school's park, S3 Park.
