Aspen Ski Vacations

Aspen Mountain has long been known as the playpen of the rich and famous – and it still is.

But it is also a great place to take a family or a group of friends on a ski vacation.

Christmas time in Aspen is movie-like and especially wonderful!

Aspen Mountain rises above the town of Aspen, with a top elevation of 11,215 feet and a vertical drop of 3,269 feet.

There are 76 trails suitable for beginners, intermediates, and experts, accessible by eight lifts, including seven chair lifts and one cable car line.

While Aspen has much to offer skiers, as well as those who enjoy the nightlife in a gorgeous ski town, you should definitely expect lots of crowds and lift lines on the slopes.

Again, this is the playpen of the rich and famous, and many people choose this ski vacation spot simply for that reason, as they can mingle with them – as well as for the great ski runs and awesome nightlife.

There are numerous places to stay in and around Aspen (Colorado), with more than 100 restaurants to choose from as well.

Ski instructions and ski equipment shops and rentals are abundant in the area, and as most snowboarders know, they are definitely welcomed here.
