4. Aspen Highlands, Colorado
When: April 14, 2019
Highlands is hands-down the locals’ favorite closing day—which says a lot considering they have four mountains to choose from. The send-off isn’t overly planned (which is what makes it so fun), but here’s what you can expect: Hike the Bowl and crush some BBQ on behalf of Ski Patrol before you launch down the 2,500-vertical-foot descent. Rip a few groomers, pop some Veuve at Cloud Nine, then meet up with more people than you thought the mountain could hold at the base for live music, booze, and true costume-laden closing-day chaos. Didn’t get that many runs in? Change your flight—Highlands is open for two more weekends (until April 28).
