Aspen Highlands Ski Resort Lodging

Aspen Highlands Ski Resort Lodging

The Little Nell offers one-of-a-kind service, comfortable lodging & slopeside convenience. Ski-in/ski-out access is as good as it gets. Boots are heated overnight & gear is available in a convenient locker room. Cribs, strollers & kids’ equipment rentals are all available.

If staying directly on-site isn’t an option, there are a wide variety of hotels, condos & home rentals in Aspen proper. Many are less expensive than those on-site.


The Little Nell delivers one-of-a-kind service and comfortable lodging, providing a remarkable ski-in/ski-out Aspen experience. The hotel is a short stroll from Aspen Highlands and the town of Aspen, so it’s easy to take advantage of all the amenities.

The hotel’s exterior looks unassuming and nondescript, but when you enter the lobby, it has an ambiance that is both cozy and elegant. You’ll find low sofas around coffee tables, a gas fireplace, and rotating artwork on the wall.

The hotel offers 122 rooms, ranging from a studio to a four-bedroom condo. They all feature mountain views, a kitchen, free Wi-Fi, and private bathrooms. There is also a fitness center, a hot tub, and a spa. Guests can enjoy a complimentary shuttle to the other Aspen mountains (Snowmass, Buttermilk, and Aspen Highlands). Aspen-Pitkin County Airport is just a short drive from Aspen. See our Aspen travel page for more information on getting to Aspen. From there, you can rent ski equipment at Aspen Mountain Lodge.


Located on Aspen Mountain, this resort has a ski-in/ski-out facility and offers guests a unique opulence and five star service. The resort is known for its renowned slopes and trails and the awe inspiring panoramic vistas that are matched with stunning architectural and interior design.

The resort has 122 rooms, including a selection of one to four-bedroom condos. Featuring private balconies, the rooms are fully furnished and feature gourmet kitchens, stone fireplaces and private bathrooms. The property also has a standard fitness center, spa and pool area.

Guests can enjoy a range of on-site dining and shopping at the Aspen Highlands Village. The resort is a short drive from Aspen and offers free shuttles to the town centre. A variety of other restaurants, bars and shops can be found nearby.


If you’re looking for something more intimate than the glitzy hotels and condos found directly on-site at Aspen Highlands, there are plenty of quaint ski cabins available. Some are located at the base of the mountain, while others are just a short drive or bus ride away in Aspen proper.

One of the most popular Aspen Highlands cabins is The Mountain Chalet, a throwback to the resort’s more traditional past. Its exterior is adorned with wood slats, and its interior boasts pine paneling and a brick fireplace framed by rustic furniture. Free coffee and tea are available throughout the day, and there’s a fifth-floor lounge for drinks and appetizers over the weekend.

Aspen Highlands doesn’t have a village on its own, though the base area features a few shops, a pub, and a restaurant. There is also a handful of high-end home rentals and condominiums on the mountain, including the Ritz Carlton Club. Guests who prefer to stay off-site can take the free shuttle from Aspen to Aspen Highlands.


A ski-in, ski-out location is at the top of many winter visitors’ wish lists. Fortunately, Aspen Highlands boasts some luxury options on-site at the slopeside Ritz Carlton Club and in the adjacent Shadow Mountain Condominiums, as well as a handful of high-end private home rentals from Frias Properties.

The village is small and geared towards skiing, with a few shops, restaurants, and bars. On-mountain apres-ski at the Cloud Nine Bistro (which transforms into a 21+ club from 2-4pm) is a must.

Of course, Aspen proper is just a 10-minute drive away from the base of Aspen Highlands and offers an extensive range of hotels, condos, and homes in every price point. Many travelers choose to stay in downtown Aspen and take the free bus to Aspen Highlands or Buttermilk for their skiing and other Aspen Snowmass adventures. Parking at Aspen Highlands is extremely limited and expensive, though. See our Aspen parking and transportation page for more information.
