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.

Every Friday is a Powder Day at The Little Nell! Grab a coveted seat in The Little Nell Powder Cat for an average of 10 untracked powder runs on Aspen Mountain’s backside.
Groom The Mountain
Ride shotgun in one of Aspen Snowmass' state-of-the-art grooming snowcats and learn from the pros how to form those perfect corduroy lines all the way down the mountain. Take in the sunset views of downtown Aspen from a seat in the “Bison 350” model Prinoth snowcat, alongside one of Aspen Mountain's snow cat drivers.

Sunset Snowcat
Ride a snowcat to the top of Aspen Mountain and watch the sunset from a private location as you enjoy snacks and Champagne. Afterward, enjoy dinner at Element 47 with a tasting in our wine cellar.
