Established in Aspen, Colorado in 1971 as S&L Travel Partners, Ski.com has since grown to become the leader in ski travel with access to more than 120 of the world’s most popular ski resort destinations.
In 1971, Barry Lefkowitz and Skip Strasbourger started S&L Travel Partners in Aspen, Colorado. According to legend, Barry and Skip began their business out of a two-bedroom hotel suite in the Continental Inn, where they used a makeshift pinboard map of North America to keep track of clients’ travel plans.
After quickly gaining ground as a leader in the burgeoning ski travel industry, the two savvy ski-town entrepreneurs changed the brand name to Aspen Ski Tours in 1974, which would remain the company title for the next two-plus decades. Then in 1999, after purchasing the highly sought-after domain name, Ski.com, Aspen Ski Tours assumed a technology-focused, 21st century brand identity to better showcase its diverse product offerings.
In September 2004, Ski.com acquired Lynx Vacations, GoWest Tours, Adventures on Skis, Sportours, and AnyMountain Tours in order to expand its domestic operations and to provide international and group travel. In June of 2010, Ski.com acquired Rocky Mountain Tours to further solidify its position as the leader in the industry. 2021 marks the 50th anniversary since Skip and Barry founded S&L Travel Partners and to this day, our Mountain Travel Experts remain deeply committed to passing along unforgettable mountain experiences to all of our beloved customers.
