Experience the Power of Four - Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass - which offers world-renowned skiing and a plenitude of outdoor activities. The legendary après ski scene, as well as extensive culture, culinary offerings and shopping, round out the full Aspen experience. All winter adventures & skiing on Aspen Mountain are available during Ski Season, November 27th, 2014 - April 20th, 2015.

New this winter, guests can experience the ultimate adrenaline rush. Allow the Little Nell hotel to transport you and up to 3 friends in one of the property’s fleet of Audis to the Aspen Airport. There, board your private helicopter to Silverton, Colorado to enjoy an exhilarating eight-hour day of heli skiing, taking advantage of more than 22,000 acres of skiable terrain at the highest elevation in Colorado.  

Cross-Country Skiing
Meander across quiet meadows and through secluded wooden areas, while enjoying the Aspen/Snowmass Nordic Trail System which links Aspen and the Snowmass Village.  A more leisurely paced afternoon can be found at the base of the Elk Mountain Range, where the trails wind along Castle Creek and navigate through the Roaring Fork Valley.

Yoga for Skiers/Boarders
Guests and locals may partake in complimentary Yoga atop Aspen Mountain Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. inside the Sundeck. Yoga for Skiers lets guests stretch and loosen up properly before an action-packed day on the slopes. Mats are provided; however, guests must have a valid lift pass to participate.

Powder Tours
Love Powder?  Take a POWDER TOUR.  Enjoy no lift lines, no crowds, just the exhilaration of skiing some of the Rocky Mountains finest powder snow in a spectacular setting.  Two guides and a driver lead each 12 person snowcat group, selecting terrain according to daily snow conditions and the group's experience.  Snowboards are welcome on Aspen Mountain Powder Tours.  Fresh tracks are guaranteed and a gourmet lunch is included.

As the only ski-in/ski-out property in Aspen, we aim to make your time on the slopes as effortless as possible.  Allow our Ski Concierge Team to handle everything from ski rentals to storing your equipment at the end of an epic day.  With four mountains to choose from and over 1,200 professional instructors from all over the world, Aspen/Snowmass programs offer superb instruction for skiing, snowboarding, children’s lessons and adaptive techniques.

A not-to-miss winter activity!  Travel on groomed trails and enjoy the panoramic views of the Maroon Bells, Independence Pass and the historic “ghost town,” or the White River National Forest.  Single or double snowmobiles are available, and no experience is necessary.

Snowshoe Tours
Strap on a pair of snowshoes and explore 80 kilometers of groomed cross-country ski and snowshoe trails of the Nordic Trail system, or attempt something more daring by traversing the backcountry or a mountaintop ridge.  A guided backcountry tour will provide you the true definition of serenity, while also maintaining your energy with warm drinks and snacks.
