About Aspen, CO

Aspen is perhaps Colorado’s most famous ski resort village. It is known to attract high rollers and jetsetters from all over the world. Around town, you’re likely to spot ritzy alpine chalets, a private jet parking lot, and maybe even a pair of celebrities undercover in their ski helmets and goggles.

For those who are not in the market for luxury real estate, it’s easy to indulge in Aspen’s picture-perfect winter atmosphere and world-class Aspen/Snowmass ski resort. Set in Colorado’s wild Elk mountain range, natural beauty abounds. In fact, the nearby twin peaks known as the Maroon Bells are the most photographed mountain landscape in Colorado, making them an easily recognizable icon.

Beyond downhill skiing, snow enthusiasts will find the whole gamut of winter sports in Aspen’s backyard. Try ice climbing, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, or open air ice-skating before cozying up to a gourmet meal or warm drink at the lodge.
