SKIING & WINTER ADVENTURES

If you’re here to exercise your right to relax, welcome to nirvana. Most people, however, choose winter in Aspen to get outside and play until darkness forces them back indoors. If you come to carve a name for yourself on the slopes, our Ski Concierge team will be alert to your whims. Ski and snowboard guests will enjoy access to once-in-a-lifetime on-mountain experiences, such as skiing on the mountain before it opens, learning to drive a snowcat, snowcat powder tours and sweeping the mountain at day’s end with Aspen Mountain Ski Patrol. Meanwhile, adventures off the mountain are many and varied, and can be arranged by our hotel Concierge team. And families will never be at a loss for kid-friendly, laughter-inducing adventures. Winter Adventures are exclusive to guests of The Little Nell, Residences at The Little Nell and The Limelight Hotel.
Book in advance to save on Aspen Snowmass Lift Tickets, Rentals, Ski School and Private Lessons.
