Overview

Boasting exceptional accommodations, world-class cuisine, unparalleled skiing/snowboarding, year-round off-mountain activities and a cozy ambiance reminiscent of its storied, mining-town past, Aspen has been offering an authentic Colorado experience since long before the growth of contemporary ski resorts.

Composed of small city blocks, Aspen is best explored by foot.  Stop for a cup of coffee and watch a world of neon-clad local snowboarders and fur-trimmed celebrities revolve around you. Window-shop the city’s numerous high-end art galleries and fashion boutiques.

Nearby Snowmass recently underwent a renaissance – including a host of on-mountain improvements for skiers and snowboarders and the construction of the impressive Viceroy Snowmass resort – that has cemented the Aspen/Snowmass area as one of the premier destinations in North America.

What We Love

Aspen's nightlife is bustling - amazing restaurants, music venues and arts centers host a myriad of events each week.

Aspen is surrounded by four ski mountains, and is connected by a great transit system, which allows for your guests to explore or stay in any of the resorts surrounding areas.

What to Know

Aspen's international popularity commands higher price tags for lodging and other costs as well.

Spring time in the mountains is called "mud season" for good reason... best to plan your wedding beginning in June through October if you want a summer or autumn wedding, and between January and March for a winter wedding.

Not to be Missed

LAKE HIKES

Two of Aspen’s most beautiful hikes are American Lake and Cathedral Lake, especially in September when the leaves are beginning to turn. 

Not a trek for the faint of heart, both trails rise over 2, 000 feet through aspen groves, boulder fields and switchbacks for a 6 mile round trip adventure lasting 2-3 hours.

BELLY UP

Long the top nightspot in Aspen, Belly Up has built and maintained its street cred by bringing the best live acts to the Aspen people. That means everything from local bluegrass bands to hip-hop globalist K’NAAN and intimate, up-close throwdowns with all-timers such as BB King.

No matter who you see, the room will be intimate and alive with great sound.

SHOP

Shopping in Aspen isn’t only for the designer-inclined diva.  Choices for shopping here in Aspen run the gamut from consignment to Prada.  Tried and true outerwear is also on hand for your next mountain adventure. 

Aspen’s Saturday Market (every Saturday from June 13th through October 10th) is another great draw and showcases locally grown produce and artisans while being a great place for socializing too.
