Aspen has it all, history, culture, sophistication – this is the quintessential Colorado ski town.
Aspen town is glitzy and chic. With heated pavements, upscale shopping including names like Prada and Chanel and some of the best hotels in the USA, it’s easy to see why this is a winter playground for film stars and celebrities.
On the slopes, Aspen Snowmass is a collection of 4 different mountains to explore, which collectively offer 5000 acres of varying terrain, linked only by complimentary shuttle bus.
Aspen Mountain is located right above the town and accessed by Gondola offering intermediate and expert only terrain. Aspen Highlands is about three miles away. Highlands is for serious skiers, who will love the big mountain terrain and expert skiing in Highland Bowl. Buttermilk is famous for hosting the ESPN Winter X Games and has one of the best terrain parks in the USA. The skiing here is best for beginners. If you stay in Aspen town, decide which mountain fits your passion and pick up the free shuttle bus from the town in the morning.
The fourth mountain is Snowmass, which is the largest of the four mountains and has skiing perfect for beginners and intermediates. Snowmass has a fantastic slope-side village which sits below 3000 acres – making it the second largest mountain resort in Colorado.
Yes Aspen has a glitzy winter image, but it is a working year round town where the vibe is relaxed and friendly and there are accommodation options to suit all styles from modern condos to Victorian elegance. Wherever you stay, you can be sure that you’ll enjoy the western hospitality which is second to none.
We love Aspen for the combination of the historic town and some of the best big mountain ski terrain in North America. It’s also an ideal destination for chic romantic getaways and Snowmass makes a great base for a family holiday with its slope-side village and miles of intermediate cruising.
We offer a range of 3, 4 and 5 star hotels and condos in Aspen and Snowmass. Check out our featured luxury ‘ski-in’ Aspen Hotel from our Platinum Collection.
