Aspen
History and glitz the perfect mix at the most fashionable ski town in the States

Despite its reputation, fully justified, as a town full of celebrities and billionaires, Aspen is a proper mountain town of real style and substance. It has as much glitz and appeal, as do the surrounding ski slopes, as any wintersports resort on the planet - and many would say there is no better.

You have the daily choice of which fabulous mountain to ski – Aspen, Highlands, Buttermilk or Snowmass. In fact each area could merit being called a resort in itself, particularly Snowmass.

Aspen Mountain, accessed from the town centre lifts, is full of both cruising and challenge, with plenty of double-diamond stuff. At wonderful Highlands there are serious top to bottom runs and huge bowls to test and excite.

Buttermilk is a dream for families, with, as the name suggests, a wealth of lovely gentle cruising. It's paradise for beginners. And fabulous Snowmass has an ever-increasing range for everyone, with a base village that is classy and extensive. Much of the lodging here is ski-in ski-out.

The mountain restaurants are good with the pick being Cloud Nine at Highlands – very European and cosy, thanks to its Austrian chef.

Aspen is a historic town that first made its fortune from silver-mining in the 19th century, and was rejuvenated when skiing began here in the Thirties. Its character has been faithfully preserved to form the most fashionable ski town in North America.

Few resorts have more to offer away from the slopes. The town is full of wonderful shopping opportunities and there are dozens of art galleries. There's a vast swimming complex and indoor ice rink at Aspen Highlands and the hot springs at Glenwood Springs is within easy reach. Hot air balloon excursions are popular.

The array of excellent bars and restaurants include Element 47 in the Little Nell Hotel, Pinons and Syzygy. Steakhouse 316 has a retro style and the Wild Fig is very Mediterranean.

Apres-ski favourites are Out of Bounds and Highlands Ale House, as well as Ajax Tavern in Aspen itself. The town has a micro-brewery, the Aspen Brewing Company – and you must have a drink at least at the iconic Hotel Jerome.
