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.

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!

something for everyone at Aspen/Snowmass

We stayed in Aspen at the Fasching Haus condo, which is 5 minute walk from the Gondola, or the bus stop, and even closer to the Shadow Mountain lift. We had six guys on this trip, and our Ski.com agent found us this condo with six twin beds in 2 bedrooms plus a den, so no one had to sleep on a couch or a rollaway. The condo was also close to bus stop, which eliminated the need for a car rental. It took a half hour each way to Snowmass and Highlands was even closer.

We're all advanced intermediate to expert skiers, and Aspen/Ajax mountain is a bit steeper than Vail, Breck or Snowmass, so we had no problem. Intermediate skiers would still enjoy Ajax, but they might want to stay up top, riding the Ajax express and then downloading on the gondola to avoid the always skied-off moderately steep Little Nell run near the base. Snowmass is a great mountain with a few adrenalin stimulating steeps, but mostly with lots of blue cruisers for everyone, like what you find at Breck, Keystone and Vail. Snowmass and Aspen Highlands have some steeps that are steeper than what those resorts have, so I love the Aspen area because of this wide variety of terrain. Also, it gets less crowded on the weekends than does Vail or the Summit County resorts, due to its longer distance from Denver. The snow base was only about 30 inches, but the conditions were far better than I was expecting. Some favorite runs on Ajax are Back of Bell, Face of Bell, etc, Walsh's, and Blondies. At Highlands, I thought Soddbusters had better snow than did Kesslers. We did not hike the bowl this year - the hike is tough and I wasn't sure the snow cover would be good enough to make it worth the effort. At Snowmass, we always like the trees and lift line under the Elk Camp chair. Had one day of fresh snow and we did the Cirque Headwall with 6 untracked inches - fantastic. Headwall, at top of Hanging Valley Wall was rocky at the top, but the rest of the trip down, through the trees, was a riot!

On mountain food is great at the Sun Deck at the top of Ajax. I had a chicken stir fry for lunch that was terrific. At Snowmass, the beef brisket sandwich at Sam's Smokehouse was big and very good. Our best dinner was at Asie, an Asian restaurant on Main Street. I had the best Sea Bass I've ever had there, and the other guys were quite please with the sushi. A burger at Bentleys was fine.

Great experience

We traveled to Aspen with our 18 months son. We had a lovely experience and enjoyed our vacation. This was our first time skiing in Colorado, so cannot compare to other resorts in US, but as a European used to ski in the Alps, I can compare to the French Alps. The resort is smaller than the big european resorts like 3 Valleys, but scenery is awesome, there are no crowds (at least in the first week of January), and the snow is fantastic. The town of Aspen is very charming, and the people are very nice and laid back. Aspen has lots of activities for the family (we could even rent a stroller for our son and spare us the pain of traveling with our stroller...)

Aspen Is My Favourite!

I greatly appreciate my ski resort vacation at Aspen during both the summer and winter seasons. Luxury lodging and extensive shopping and dinning opportunities are offered in the many specialty stores, restaurants, and bars. It features over 3,000 acres of terrain for both snowboarding and skiing and also has a rail yard and a superpipe. Guided nature tours by either ski or snowboard are offered for free. In addition, snowshoeing tours are given so that I was able to take in Colorado's natural wonders. It also features an indoor paintball area, a NASTAR course, and tube town. I must say aspen resort has something for everyone to do and enjoy.

Aspen/Snowmass 2009 CCSS Ski Trip

Connecticut Ski club of 26 adults staying at the Crestwood Condo (True ski-in/ski-out) at Snowmass; 7 day, 5 ski days with 4 mountain pass. The condo was very nice and the people were very helpful; pool, 3 hot tubs, steam room, exercise equipment, free laundry in each building. Transportation around Snowmass village, Aspen, and 4 mountains was free and convenient. Snowmass had a lot of good intermediate trails even with the lack of snow. The expert terrain was good at the top, but ice lower down (similar to East coast conditions). Highlands and Aspen Mountain more advanced terrain, but similar snow conditions. Worth the walk (30 minutes) to get to only bowl (Highlands); 40+ degree steeps with some nice trees in knee high wind pack powder. Snowed only once the first week of March, but got 15 inches the morning we left….

I loved Aspen

I had an amazing time in Aspen, despite being there after a month of record low snow fall. There is such a great variety of terrain on Aspen Mountain, but when you add Aspen Highlands and Snowmass, it's truly incredible. The ski instructors are great, as well as all of the mountain personnel. There are lots of great restaurants and shops to keep busy with in the evening.

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.
