As an outdoor enthusiast in the Winter the Jerome has it’s own dedicated ski shop and valet that will store your equipment for you each night and have it ready for you as you hop in your own private car to get shuttled to any of the 4 mountains. Aspen Mountain, known locally as “Ajax” is 3 minutes away, while Buttermilk and Highlands are 10 minutes and Snowmass is 15.
