For the Snow Bunny
If you prefer to enjoy the snow off the slopes, the Aspen Meadows Resort is the best to stay! The hotel rents out snowshoes, Yaktrax, and even host guided snowshoe tours every Wednesday at 3 p.m. For the little ones, sleds, igloo and snowman making kits are all available. After a day of enjoying the outdoors, guests can cozy up in the Hefner Lounge for complimentary s'mores!
For the Dog Lover
The Little Nell shares a passion for your furry friends and treats them like family during their stay in Aspen. Upon check-in, dogs receive a brass identification tag. They offer bowls, beds, and a specialized "pet menu" that caters to all diets. If you come here to ski, but can't imagine leaving your dog alone at home all day, don't fret! The Nell has staff that will walk your pets for you while you are out. One last perk: if you are travelling from sea-level and your dog is feeling the effects of altitude, The Little Nell offers puppy jet lag kits to ease them into comfort!
For the Bike Obsessed
Have you heard of the fat bike craze? Have you ever wanted to try riding one before making a purchase? The Limelight Hotel offers complimentary fat bike rentals year round. Take one out and adventure on the many trails right outside of town. Helpful hint, ask the concierge about the trails with the best conditions during your stay.
For the Wine Connoisseur
If you love a good happy hour, consider staying at Sky Hotel. The Sky Hotel realizes that not everyone is used to having cocktails at 7,900 feet. Each day, they host an "Altitude Adjustment" hour in the lobby; consider it a boot camp for those who come from sea level. From 5 to 6 p.m. you can sip on wine, mingle with others, and finalize your evening plans.
For the Adventure Seeker
The St. Regis has added a new sport to the Aspen scene this winter: dog skijoring. This sport comes from Scandinavia, and consists of being pulled behind a dog or horse on skis. There will be a certified dog trainer on site to help owners train their dogs to "skijor," which also serves as a great way to get your pets some exercise. If you don't have a pet with you but still want to try it out, you can borrow one from the Aspen Animal Shelter, who will be receiving a portion of the proceeds from this program.
