Aspen Travel Guide

Arguably no U.S. mountain town is as synonymous with ski culture as Aspen. It’s got glitz and glamour — Think: glossy Moncler jackets, cozy The Elder Statesmen sweaters, head-to-toe Prada ski gear, and pop-up bars from New York brands. There’s also a cadre of die-hard skiers who practically live on the slopes of Ajax, Highlands, Snowmass and Buttermilk mountains. Celebrity sightings are aplenty here as are curious art objects peppered throughout the snow-covered town. I use my tried-and-true Travel Agent, Eddie Mena of Mena Travel for all travel needs (flights, hotel, transportation, reservations, panic attacks) and he can be reached at (786) 395-8887 or by emailing [email protected]
