Vacaciones de ski en Aspen

Como un patio de recreo para los ricos y famosos y el hogar para cerca de 7.000 residentes durante todo el año, Aspen está lleno de rebosantes opciones. Algunos resorts pueden ofrecer una experiencia excepcional de familia, algunos excelentes opciones gastronómicas, y otros ofrecen un paraíso para los esquiadores expertos o pistas de ensueño para los intermedios, pero pocos pueden ofrecer todo ésto envuelto en uno de los mejores resorts de ski junto con los escenarios de la vida nocturna en Norte América . Unas vacaciones de esquí de Aspen son perfectas para cualquier persona gracias a las cuatro montañas del resort convenientemente ubicadas: Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk y Snowmass.

Como variado es el terreno, la gastronomía de Aspen también ofrece a los visitantes una multitud de selecciones desde el Restaurante Japonés de fusión Iron Chef Matsuhisa - único y de alta categoría – al Food & Wine Magazine´s Chef´s Club en el St. Regis, a la pizza, a la mexicana y hasta comida de buen precio en los bares.  En Aspen, si usted quiere, todo lo que tiene que hacer es preguntar!

Esquiar en Aspen

Los esquiadores principiantes prosperarán en Buttermilk y Snowmass, cada una de las cuales cuentan con instalaciones amigables para principiantes y para los niños, y están diseñadas con zonas para "aprender a esquiar" que atienden tanto a niños como a los adultos. Pero Snowmass en Aspen es el paraíso para un esquiador intermedio, por la inmensa cantidad de pistas azules que tienen las montañas. Los esquiadores principiantes, especialmente novatos, se desaniman a esquiar en la Montaña de Aspen porque no hay pistas verdes.

Por otro lado, el esquí experto es por lo que Aspen Mountain y Aspen Highlands  son reconocidos. La película clásica de ski de los años 80, Aspen Extreme, fue filmada en las pistas de Aspen Mountain, o "Ajax". Los lugareños jóvenes cargan felices la antorcha del ski extremo y agresivo de Aspen.  Y no hay mejores pistas que funcionan de arriba a abajo gracias a los 3267 pies de ascenso vertical del Ajax’ Silver Queen Gondola.  A las personas con espíritu aventurero, se les recomienda escalar 700 pies verticales de la parte superior de la famosa Aspen Highlands Bowl.  Usted será recompensado en la cumbre con una de las mejores vistas de Aspen / Snowmass  y sus excelentes pistas.

Perfect spot for family stay

Quiet, accessible and quick walking distance from downtown.

I have been skiing in Aspen since 1970 and have been there at least 35 times. We now come every year in the spring. This was another great trip.

We normally ski on Ajax because we like groomed black runs.

Everything you could want in a ski vacation

All aspects of our vacation were A-One. A little tough to get to compared to some other resorts but well worth it for us. $ mountains to choose from, free public transportation to all, so we didn't need a car. (Flew in to Aspen Airport, just a short ride from there to the Prospector.

Incredible in all aspects

No complaints at all, everything was a 10. Great diversity in skiing, dining, shopping and sightseeing options. Don't be turned off by the Aspen "mystique", we find it very competitive price wise vis a vis places like Vail and Beaver Creek. and the people are very friendly and down to earth, can't do enough for you. Of course, you have the additional element of the "star watching'", e.g., how about Ringo Starr and Ralph Lauren and all the International ski racers in town/at the Limelight on this visit? Weather was great also. Once you go you'll have difficulty going somewhere else! At least we do, we've been going there for years.

Wonderful, magical town, with great mountains, hiking, and scenery.

The variety and quality of the terrain and conditions is impressive -- although all of my non-Aspen experience has been in the Northeast :) The ski area staff, ski instructors, and shops are all so welcoming and friendly, which just contributes to the whole experience. This year I had all of my (non-on-slope) meals at the Little Nell because the food was so good and I saw no reason to leave the wonderfully relaxing environment, but I know from past experience that the food options are more than enough to keep one interested indefinitely.

Fun in the sun

Skied at Aspen, Snowmass and Aspen Highlands. Snowmass is by far the biggest and for us, being from the east, we stuck to the wide groomers. Aspen and Aspen Highlands both had a smaller feel and the off piste skiing was easy to find and world class. If the snow is good, and you are an expert skier, the hike to the back bowl at Highlands is worth the effort.

Once in a lifetime trip

Two years ago I decided to make a "once in a lifetime trip" to ski in Aspen. I hadn't been skiing in 20 years, and never in the West. I picked Aspen because I had been there once in the summer many years ago, and because of its reputation. I made the arrangements through American Express, but they in turn went to Ski.com to put the package together. The trip was so wonderful that it has become an annual event, and if anything has been better each time. A list of the details of what makes Aspen special is perhaps to one side of the point. Many places have great hotels and restaurants and mountains. Aspen is simply much greater than the sum of its many great parts. Every aspect of the venue holds its own delights.

wonderful place

It was our first time in Colorado. I was really impressed with the city, particularly the gastronomy side of it. The fact that we could also get from one mountain to the other in no time was also a plus. We had the snowest week of the season, and the experience was trully satisfying. The snowboarding experience was great for me at Snowmass, and my wife, a beginner, also had a great time at Buttermilk. It is definetely a place for the whole family. It is certain that we will return to the city--and next time we'll bring the kids along!

Over the past two weeks I had the pleasure of staying and playing in the Aspen Snowmass area. I cannot begin to explain the beauty that fills the valley this time of year.  The days were warm and the nights were cool, just the way I like it. The flowers and grass were blooming and truly made my experience that much better. I took advantage of biking on the Cozyline trail, which was so much fun I immediately wanted to ride it again. Great for intermediate riders. There was live music to be found, the restaurants all had their outdoor patios open, and the seasonal food, cocktails and beers were just awesome. I would highly recommend a summer vacation in the Aspen Snowmass area to someone looking for a town that is easy to navigate with stellar service no matter if its at your hotel or in a restaurant, and simply amazing access to nature!

Aspen is graced with one of the finest ski Mountains around. Ajax, as the locals like to call Aspen Mountain, is not huge (673 acres) compared to the other 3 Aspen/Snowmass mountains operated in the Aspen area, but it is one of my favorites. There is no beginner terrain on the mountain; mostly it is intermediate, advanced and expert. I love its quirkiness; it has numerous homemade memorials and tributes that you can find hidden in the trees of the mountain created in honor of famous people such as John Denver and Elvis. The town of Aspen is right at the base of the mountain, and it is really special by any standard. There you will find incredible dining, unique and amazing shopping, and some of the finest lodging options anywhere. I find that the convenience of the free skier shuttles is tops. You can get to any of the 4 Aspen area ski mountains quickly and easily. There is always something great going on in the area, whether it is the X Games in late January, or the Aspen Music Festival and the Food and Wine Festival in the summer. Aspen truly has it all. Call me; I can help you put together a package customized for your needs and interests.
