The Little Nell's 30th Anniversary

The Little Nell first opened our doors on Thanksgiving Day of 1989. Over the past three decades, our guests have become dear friends, many of whom we welcome back year after year, and our staff have become more like family. It's the people who make The Little Nell special and your memories mean so much to all of us. As the closing celebration to our 30th anniversary, we'd love to hear from you - friends and fans, employees and alumni. Tell Us Your Nell Story for a chance to win a deluxe stay!

Are you friends with the ski concierges and receive their holiday card each year? Did you tie the knot atop Aspen Mountain or celebrate a honeymoon at the hotel? Have you partied during apres-ski at Chair 9, Ajax Tavern, in the Living Room or in your room? Does your pup love the pet menu and special treatment upon arrival?
