Aspen, Colorado

Stay with Inspirato in the posh mountain town of Aspen while enjoying access to The Ritz-Carlton amenities at Maroon Creek—located near the base of Aspen Highlands. Bear Paw is one of the larger homes here and offers a secluded feel close to downtown. Three-bedroom Copper Gulch, located at the base of Aspen Mountain, is just steps away from world-class skiing and restaurants. And located in the heart of downtown is Hotel Jerome, often described as “Aspen’s crown jewel.”

A Posh and Historic Rocky Mountain Ski Town

One of the world’s most sophisticated ski towns, Aspen attracts a glitzy international crowd with its high-end shopping, haute cuisine, and world-class skiing. In the winter, choose from four resorts offering a wide range of terrain for every level of skier—from double-black diamonds at the Highlands to gentle runs at Buttermilk. Aspen Mountain (Ajax) is the crown jewel and perfect for intermediate to advanced skiers. See and be seen in lively après ski spots around town, then soothe sore muscles with a massage in one of Aspen’s renowned spas. Come summer, those same ski runs turn into hiking and mountain biking trails accessible via the gondola.

Destination Highlights

  • Gondola Rides

    Open year-round, the Silver Queen Gondola whisks visitors to the top of Aspen Mountain at 11,212 feet. From here, ski down more than 75 trails in the winter. In the summer, catch a bluegrass concert or go for a hike.

  • Maroon Bells

    Known as the most photographed spot in Colorado, the twin peaks of Maroon Bells soar more than 14,000 feet above Crater Lake. Fall is the best time to visit, when aspen groves turn brilliant hues of gold, orange, and red.

  • Shopping

    Downtown Aspen has a wide range of options for the shopping enthusiast, from funky secondhand stores and art galleries to a parade of upscale boutiques—Gucci, Prada, and more—all housed within historic 19th-century buildings.



  • Forecasting Your Aspen Vacation

    Aspen winters are known for plenty of bluebird days as well as ample snowfall, which blankets the quaint town and nearby ski slopes. Summers are comfortable and dry, with temperatures often reaching the 70s; the temperature rarely climbs above 80°F. If you want to take advantage of high-alpine hiking and mountain biking, your best bet is to visit late June to mid-August, when the winter’s snow has melted.
