Winter, the renowned season for Aspen. Skiing and Snowboarding on these world-class slopes should be on everyone's bucket list, but the fun doesn't end when the chair lift stops running for the day. Many of our arts & culture institutions, famous in the summer, offer winter programming. Après ski is a must when vacationing in an alpine village, and in Aspen the culinary delights don't stop there. We have over 90 restaurants offering up everything from burgers to sushi, with expertly paired wines & hand crafted cocktails to warm you up on a cold winter's evening. Even if you don't ski, there is plenty to be enjoyed in our winter wonderland: ice skating, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, fly fishing, and more. Check out some of our recommended winter itineraries if you need some suggestions to get your vacation started.
