In conjunction with the Aspen Snowmass Ski and Snowboard Schools, the Limelight Hotel introduced a new uphill skiing program last winter to introduce and engage guests in the growing sport. Uphill skiing, also known as ‘skinning’ or ‘alpine touring,’ consists of special equipment that allows guests to hike uphill on their skis and then ski down.
The uphill skiing program is free to hotel guests and will take place on select dates on Buttermilk Ski Area from 10AM – 2PM. Expert ski school instructors will guide newcomers to the sport through the process of learning how to use the equipment as well as instruction in the best techniques for uphill skiing. Equipment is not provided but the Limelight Hotel can facilitate rentals for guests through Four Mountain Sports.
