Winter in Hip, Glamorous Aspen Colorado Has Arrived

Ski and snowboard enthusiasts are pretty intense about their sport and there is no better place to take advantage of this than Aspen, Colorado's Rocky Mountain Range.

Offering awe-inspiring ski and snowboard vacations for snow lovers, Aspen is a top-notch winter vacation destination boasting the best of everything from charming hotels and five-star resorts to world-famous, well groomed ski slopes and terrain.

The top picks for the 2007 ski season are Buttermilk Mountain which is great for beginners, Aspen Mountain (AJAX) which touts challenging slopes best suited to expert skiers, and Aspen Highlands, a local favorite. Travelers with a hankering to sample the surrounding slopes will be delighted to find that Vail is close enough for a quick day trip at just seventy miles away.

Aspen, which was developed into a ski resort in 1940 after a long history of silver mining, affords travelers the opportunity to create once-in-a-lifetimes memories in this unique vacation destination. The ski town with an A-list a mile long and celebrity sightings around every corner offers many family-friendly activities. Snow activities like snowmobiling, dog sled riding, outdoor ice skating, and cross country skiing, top the list.

Aspen Colorado, a quaint village known for its fashion sense, offers days of pampering with world-class spa treatments and deep tissues massages at luxury spas. The Aspen Recreation Center, an 83,000 square foot recreation facility boasting an NHL-sized ice rink, an aquatic area with a two-story water slide, and a 32-foot climbing tower, is a must for adventurous families. The Aspen Historical Society focuses on the historic preservation of the Aspen area by sharing its unique history with travelers through their West End Walking Tours. Other cultural favorites include the Aspen Art Museum and Wheeler Opera House. Aspen Colorado flaunts the perfect balance of scenic wilderness, lively entertainment, and activities year-round.
