Travel Tips from people who've been to Aspen
Stayed at Top of the Village, a ski in/ski out right on Snowmass. Most amazing experience. Snowed 4 of the 5 days there. Fresh powder was not hard to find. Half the trails are groomed, they leave most of the trails at the top of the mountain untouched, so have to get out early for the splendor of making the first tracks.  The locals are real chill, and the ones at the small board shops are not only nice but very helpful. Plus the local shops are cheaper than the mountains board shop, though the mountain's does have more boards to demo.

Free shuttle service to the 3 other mountains before 4pm. also free shuttle service to the town of Aspen before 4, this free service also applies, no time restriction, to up and down the mountain from the shopping centers/downtown/parking lots to lodging.

I'd stay away from the Mexican, but the restaurants were all good. The best places were the local hole-in-the-wall's, rather than the big flashy ones.

Aspen... what a great place to ski!  There is a mountain and skill for everyone.  If you are a beginner, choose to ski Buttermilk , if you like more challenge, choose Aspen Mountain and Highland.  The best overall and largest mountain is Snowmass.  The town of Aspen has great nightlife, restaurants, souvenir and clothing shops.  Aspen is a "must see for yourself" location!

Home of the rich and famous, there are many shops and boutiques available. The ski area in town is open only to skiers because the trails are so narrow snowboarders would block them. About 90% of this resort is black diamond, double black and triple black. Not a resort for beginners. Known locally as Ajax for good reason. Aspen holds a gay week sometime in January or February.
