Aspen Snowmass is a winter resort complex located in Pitkin County in western Colorado in the United States. Owned and operated by the Aspen Skiing Company it comprises four skiing/snowboarding areas on four adjacent mountains in the vicinity of the towns of Aspen and Snowmass Village.

- Aspen Highlands, located on Highland Peak and Loge Peak just north of Aspen.
- Buttermilk, a low altitude family-oriented ski area just north of Aspen Highlands, but also known for its world class terrain park, host of the X Games.
- Snowmass, the largest of the four areas (bigger than the other three combined), located near Snowmass Village.
