We recently spent 5 days in Aspen and wanted to share some of the delights of this fabulous ski resort with you:
SPECIAL OFFERS ASPEN SNOWMASS ENQUIRE
Sky Hotel, Aspen - THE party hotel
We stayed in the Sky Hotel, known for its legendary nightlife & celebrity watching. The 39 degrees bar & lounge were certainly buzzing and the cocktails superb, but the rooms surprisingly quiet. Sky Hotel Aspen is "ski in", you can virtually ski into the pool(!) and a very short walk out to the gondola. With its whimsical giant lobby chairs & light shade you feel a bit like you're Alice in Wonderland when sampling the "altitude adjustment" nightly apres ski. The stylish rooms have faux fur throws and you'll see guests parading around in the leopard & zebra print bathrobes!
Aspen Snowmass ski resort Colorado USA We managed to squeeze in some skiing between property tours... Aspen / Snowmass has had around 300 cm of snow since Oct 1, conditions are amazing and there's a huge amount of terrain for all ability levels. Highlands bowl opened during our visit and is an unbelievably experience for advanced / expert skiers. We even found some fun black runs off the Tiehack lift at Buttermilk, traditionally a more gentle ski area for beginners, so ideal for families with some beginners & some more advanced skiers.
From the historic ghost town of Ashcroft just outside Aspen we took a magical moonlit sleigh ride to the Pine Creek Cookhouse for dinner. Alternatively guests can choose to Snowshoe or cross-country ski to lunch or dinner. We also partook in apres ski at the famous Ajax Tavern at the base of the gondola in the Little Nell Hotel Aspen - oysters, crab legs, fondue & champagne, not a bad start to the evening! For late night entertainment we headed to "Belly Up" - THE place for live music with over 300 concerts each year.
