Aspen Colorado is a legendary resort mountain town with equal parts scenic natural beauty, outstanding amenities and world-class nightlife. While Aspen is an internationally renowned destination featuring many current luxury amenities, the town has retained the small town charm resulting from it’s Victorian-era past as a silver mining town.
As beautiful as Aspen is during the winter, the locals joke that “everyone comes for the winter but stays for the summer.” Indeed, Aspen’s charm only magnifies as the weather warms up. Summer brings incredible arts & entertainment including the Aspen Music Festival’s concerts, cutting-edge dance from Aspen Santa Fe Ballet and direct from Broadway drama and musicals with TheatreAspen.
The centerpiece of the town is Aspen Mountain, with 3,267 vertical feet of skiing and snowboarding. While there is terrain for beginner skiers at the very top, Aspen Mountain, known to locals as ‘Ajax’ after one of the original silver claims in the area, is best suited to intermediate and above skiers. As well as being the place to see and be seen, it hosts some of the best mogul skiing in the United States. The Hyatt Grand Aspen, the St. Regis Aspen, and the Residences at Little Nell can be found just a few steps away, with coveted ski-in, ski-out access for guests.
