Over the past two weeks I had the pleasure of staying and playing in the Aspen Snowmass area. I cannot begin to explain the beauty that fills the valley this time of year.  The days were warm and the nights were cool, just the way I like it. The flowers and grass were blooming and truly made my experience that much better. I took advantage of biking on the Cozyline trail, which was so much fun I immediately wanted to ride it again. Great for intermediate riders. There was live music to be found, the restaurants all had their outdoor patios open, and the seasonal food, cocktails and beers were just awesome. I would highly recommend a summer vacation in the Aspen Snowmass area to someone looking for a town that is easy to navigate with stellar service no matter if its at your hotel or in a restaurant, and simply amazing access to nature!

Aspen is graced with one of the finest ski Mountains around. Ajax, as the locals like to call Aspen Mountain, is not huge (673 acres) compared to the other 3 Aspen/Snowmass mountains operated in the Aspen area, but it is one of my favorites. There is no beginner terrain on the mountain; mostly it is intermediate, advanced and expert. I love its quirkiness; it has numerous homemade memorials and tributes that you can find hidden in the trees of the mountain created in honor of famous people such as John Denver and Elvis. The town of Aspen is right at the base of the mountain, and it is really special by any standard. There you will find incredible dining, unique and amazing shopping, and some of the finest lodging options anywhere. I find that the convenience of the free skier shuttles is tops. You can get to any of the 4 Aspen area ski mountains quickly and easily. There is always something great going on in the area, whether it is the X Games in late January, or the Aspen Music Festival and the Food and Wine Festival in the summer. Aspen truly has it all. Call me; I can help you put together a package customized for your needs and interests.
