Resort Description
In the 19th Century, Aspen was a booming town which had made its fortune from silver mines. However, when the price of silver crashed in 1893, its economy was shattered, all the workers left and the old Victorian buildings started falling into disrepair.

60 years later, Aspen was given a new life, as a ski resort. This is not surprising when you consider that the village is located at 2425 m. altitude, and that the mountain goes all the way up to 3415 m. . In fact, this is the combination that makes this destination so wonderful: a traditional town full of character and a mountain which is excellent for beginners and experts alike.

Today the village has retained all of its historical charm yet there are few places in the world where you will find so many designer shops, gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels.

As regards the ski, you have four areas to choose from: Aspen Mountain which is locate right next to the village and is great for intermediates, Buttermilk which has mostly easy runs, Aspen Highlands which has excellent runs for advanced skiers and, Snow mass which –though further away- is a huge skiing area with runs for all levels.

All in all, Aspen has it all: beautiful village, excellent lifestyle and incredible skiing and snow-boarding. It is no wonder that this destination is a favorite of the jet-set, yet it might surprise you that the prices are no more expensive than the popular European resorts. If you are planning a ski trip to the U.S.A. Aspen is simply a great choice.
