With an elevation of nearly 8,000 feet, there’s no doubt that Aspen, Colorado is way above ordinary. Famous not just for the people who frequent it, everything about Aspen is five-star, from the world-class dining, renowned lodging and, of course, the legendary mountains that make this small Colorado town a skier’s paradise.
Over four days — one for each mountain in the resort, if you so choose — carve through the more than 5,000 acres of skiable terrain and 13,000 feet of vertical rise, with miles of runs for every skill level. Each day your skis and boots will be waiting for you at the private ski valet, and one morning you’ll have the opportunity to beat the lift lines — not that they exist much anyway — and make first tracks on the iconic Aspen Mountain.
You’ll stay steps away from the slopes at The Little Nell, a five-diamond property that is the only ski-in, ski-out location in town. Your room includes a fireplace, a full-stocked bar, soaking tub and heated marble floors, along with plush bedding to ensure an ideal recovery after each ski day.
When the chairs stop spinning, enjoy everything Aspen offers après, including a performance at the Wheeler Opera House following a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the venue which is listed on the National Historic Register of Places. Dine at Aspen’s finest, including the exclusive Caribou Club and Matsuhisa, created by world-famous sushi Chef Nobu Matshuhisa.
Toast a final glass of champagne to the mountain at Chair 9 before heading to the nearby airport where you’ll depart as only Aspen’s truly elite do — privately.
