The dining experience is enhanced by original art pieces by Michelle Grabner, Angel Otero, Scott Reeder, Philip Vanderhyden, Cameron Martin and Jose Lerma.

The hotel’s Living Room lounge was also renovated to evoke Aspen’s relaxed nature. It offers a cozy space to relax in front of the double-sided fireplace and to socialize with other guests, or to simply unwind with a drink from the bar.

The Aspen Mountain Lodge

The hotel is also dog-friendly, making it a great option for traveling with your furry friends. You can also enjoy a continental breakfast each morning and free wine and cheese in the lobby.

Known for its maverick history and legendary closing day party, Aspen Highlands is a local’s favorite that boasts sweeping views of the Maroon Bells. You can access all four Aspen/Snowmass mountains on a single lift ticket, and you’ll find a good mix of beginner and intermediate trails.

If you’re a confident beginner, you can enjoy wide-open groomers and chutes as well as steeps and trees. For expert skiers, head to the Highland Bowl for deep powder. It’s accessed by an uphill hike, and it can be tough if you’re not acclimatized.
