People think this tough-to-get-to-mountain town is more about Prada than powder. But once you schuss out of your posh hotel
and right onto the slopes, it’s obvious that Aspen and Snowmass are skiers’ and snowboarders’ mountains—there are 5,553 acres
to tackle, all on one lift ticket. (This figure includes Aspen’s 230-acre terrain on Burnt Mountain, which was formerly backcountry.)
But if you’re looking for luxe touches in between runs, it’s there: Top yoga and a mobile champagne-and-caviar bar are all
a quick slide from the slopes.
