Ajax mountain is quite special. Between the views up the gondola, the layout of the mountain, and the grooming of the slopes, it is skiing at its finest. The position of the mountain as it ascends from the Town of Aspen is quite special and...More

take the gondola up or hike up and enjoy the scenery! good up top is awful compared to what it used to be (last visit 3 kinds of BEAN soup was it). but it's worth it. try Ruthie's run too!

First off there are no green runs here... None/Nada!! Beautiful scenery. The vertical is good. The runs are not super long except from top to bottom. Lots of great blacks, but with poor snow this season I mainly stuck to blue groomers!

Colorado is the place for fine skiing. You have many choices for snowboarding and skiing. When selecting a mountain to challenge your skiing you really need to understand the different runs each mountain offers. If your a great skier you must ski Ajax.

Locals talk about how Ajax's 675 skiable acres "ski big for its size". With a lift almost everywhere you turn, and impeccable grooming on a highly interconnected set of trails, Ajax lives up to that billing. I found it easy to ski from one side...More

Unless you are seriously fit and have an hour or more to spare, I wouldn't hike up the mountain. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the top while riding the lift so walking it is not achievable for most, I think. I can't... More
