Aspen, Colorado, is the snow-encrusted jewel of the Rocky Mountains. With massive amounts of snowfall every winter, Aspen is home to four different mountains, Aspen Mountain, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk, which are perfect for ski season. The purchase of one lift ticket gives you access to all four mountains. Aspen Mountain is perhaps the most unique due to its easy access from downtown, numerous lodging options, the pop-up champagne bar hosted there every Friday, and the large number of black diamond plus runs for advanced skiers.
Whether you want to stay in downtown Aspen or in a resort butting up to one of Aspen's mountains, you have many choices in lodging. A variety of accommodations in downtown Aspen offer the charm of a European ski lodge, and the modern flair that Aspen loves to show off. Numerous resorts are adjacent to the mountains, offering plush amenities such as great spas, mouthwatering fine dining options, and transportation right to the lifts.
In this ski town, you won't find a lack of dining choices. Beer aficionados can enjoy some local brews during a visit; The Aspen Brewing Company brews some of the most unique and beloved beer in the state, and they're particularly known for their Ajax Pilsner and Brown Bear Ale.
