In Colorado’s Rocky Mountains you will find Aspen, an absolutely gorgeous city that finds itself the destination for all those who love ski resorts, beautiful mountain views, high-end restaurants & stores, outdoor activities, and more! We’ve mentioned resorts, but two key ones that a lot of people love are the Buttermilk Ski Resort and the Aspen Snowmass Ski Resort—Buttermilk is great for the kids who want to learn all the basics of skiing, snowboarding, and more, while Snowmass has four mountains, (one of them being Buttermilk), and is the place for all who love being with nature. Safe to say there’s a lot to explore and finding the best hotels in Aspen is key to a good time!
