I read some articles on and found out this resort is the famous worldwide. Then I decided to have an Aspen ski vacation trip with my family. And I must say Aspen is a jewel in the crown! You can star gaze while skiing and while shopping, day or night. It is hard to believe that Aspen is actually an old mining town. This part of its history makes skiing only one of the many things to fill out your vacation. Aspen is family friendly and my whole family had the best time ever there!
My opinion is Snowmass is the best mountain to ski on. I do recommend a cafe called cafe Suzanne on the left side of Snowmass, is so relaxed and much better than any other cafes we went into. The reason is other cafes notice you have finished your food and give you the bill, u pay and before u know if you’re leaving. At cafe Suzanne’s u pay before you sit down and the waiters don't hassle you. If you want a day off skiing there's snowmobiling, which I enjoyed (If you can go on the Independence Pass), dog sledding, (expensive, not very good), paragliding, never tried and it's expensive.
