Aspen has a huge ski area, a captivating town and some of the best après bars in the country.

Rising above this iconic town, Aspen Mountain is one of its four fantastic ski areas. There are local lifts in town, while efficient buses shuttle you to the other ski areas on your pass.

For challenging days, Aspen Mountain and Highlands are our favourites, while the intermediate paradise of Snowmass is the largest area. Buttermilk is best for beginners and, for snowboarders, the X Games terrain parks are fantastic. Offering such huge variety, Aspen ski holidays are great for longer breaks, and the slopes are noticeably quiet.

The pretty town has authentic Victorian buildings, with posh boutiques and a huge range of dining options. The nightlife and après bars are excellent too - Mezzaluna is particularly good, as are the margaritas at Blue Maize. And while Aspen has a glitzy reputation, this is also a locals’ town with down-to-earth options for smaller budgets.

Aspen has more than enough to keep you busy, or you could experience more of the region on a Colorado Ski Safari - ask our Colorado experts to tell you more.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Something for everyone from beginners to expert. Don't think this is just rich people showing off their jewellery. Although you can do if you want. Lessons are not cheap but very good. I took two group lessons - one group had three in it the other was just me. Same for the lessons my wife took.

Local free bus services between the 4 skiing areas are excellent. There is a lot of variety in the skiing these areas offer.

Plenty of skiing, good atmosphere, high standards of service. Long drive from Denver. Increase you card spending limit in preparation - but worth it!
