You are supposed to be in Aspen to ski. There are four mountains and plenty of resorts at which to do so. This great ski area has three locations: Central Aspen, East End Aspen and West End Aspen. But, there are other offerings, some just as enticing (and not nearly as cold) as feeling the wind and really cold snow in your face. Sit in the shadow of Aspen mountain while enjoying lunch after shopping for new duds in downtown Aspen. This mountain is home to Snowmass ski resort. Aspen Mountain is suited for intermediate and expert skiers, however Snowmass is family friendly and offers lots of stuff to do for the family on vacation. The Aspen Highlands loom above Highland Village, which offers plenty of shopping and lots of vacation rental homes, villas and condos and ski chalets. Buttermilk Mountain has played home to ESPN’s Winter X Games (no not x-rated, but X-treme) so if you happen to be there while this is going on, get a ticket or get out of the way. There is also plenty of expert ski instruction to keep you safe when you actually do venture onto the slopes yourself.
There are other activities besides skiing, snowboarding and looking like a superstar in downtown Aspen, like dog sledding, back country skiing snowshoeing, sleigh rides and snowmobiling. In the off months, Aspen also offers great outdoor action with target shooting, rock climbing, biking, tennis, golf hiking horseback riding plus much more. Aspen is truly a year round resort, not only for its outdoor offerings but its well known art and cultural scene as well. In other words, splurge on some very cool sunglasses and work on your appreciation of good art, great music and stimulating conversation. Get yourself an Aspen vacation rental home or cabin, and discover the depth of this artistic community that is breathtakingly beautiful and a true superstar of ski resorts.
