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.

A wonderful holiday. Skiing was superb. Biggest challenge was the drive to and from Denver on rather icy roads, but then again it was winter and we did want the snow!! Excellent resort with well groomed pistes and a wide variety of skiing options and some really challenging runs. Particularly appreciated the inter area transfer of hired skis, which made a huge difference. Aspen has changed since we last went five years ago. Some of the more traditional bars and breakfast places have gone and been replaced by more high end retail outlets.

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.

Possibly the Tastiest Cat-Ski Experience in the World

21st September 2018 - Andy Knights

The Little Nell Powder Cat Experience with Aspen Snowcat Powder Tours is new to our programme this winter. I went to try it out in February this year as part of our new Colorado Cat-Ski Safari and can honestly say this is a flavourful cat-skiing experience like no other. Introducing The Little Nell...
