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.

Skiing fantastic and plenty to do in Aspen itself.

05/02/2016 David Peek

Quality and service excellent though as expected a bit pricey at times. Ski slopes wonderfully empty - one 3 minute line at a lift in 6 days skiing!

01/04/2015 Kenneth Moore

I have my own equipment and benefit from the Silver Ski Pass but those renting skis and paying $129 a day for the lift ticket would have found it very expensive this season; prices seem to have risen sharply in the last 2 or three years. It is a great place, though, with excellent skiing, and well worth saving for!

Deep December Powder in Aspen Snowmass

29th January 2016 - Jade Pritchard

I've snowboarded across Europe and I'm possibly the most patriotic ‘non-Canadian’ Canadian imaginable having lived there for two years, but my only experience of the USA before this trip was a long weekend in Whitefish, Montana. Aspen conjured up images of fur clad women wearing Chanel sunglasses...

Winter Has Arrived

27th November 2015 - Craig Charley

November - or should it be Snowvember? - what an incredible month of snow. Pre-season has beaten all expectations and with most resorts now open, the snow continues to fall heavily. If December is anywhere near as good as November, we could be looking at a very deep winter. USA California Last...
