The perfect Apres-Ski or midday lunch spot at the base of Aspen Mountain with a great view of the gondola. Fantastic people watching on the large outdoor patio. Faves: Burger, Truffle Fries, French Onion soup. Tip: During high season, there may be a bit of a wait so come a little earlier.

Sushi from the Best in the Biz - Nobu! Expensive but great quality sushi! Faves: Everything is good. Tip: Make reservations for the downstairs main dining room well in advance as they book up VERY quickly. The upstairs bar area is first-come, first-served seating but a different atmosphere than the main dining room.

By far our favorite Apres-Ski bar in town! While this is more of an upscale see-or-be-seen, celebrity-spotting bar located inside the Little Nell Hotel, the scene is totally worth it! Live music on some days and DJ on others. Tip: They recently changed their first-come/first-served seating policy in favor of a more upscale bottle service only reserved table section :( Total bummer! However, there are still a few high top tables and all of the bar stools and window benches are open. The neighboring living room is also served by the bar staff so those sofas are all additional seating options. During ski season, it is strongly suggested that you arrived prior to 3:00 p.m. as it starts getting harder to find a spot.

No list of Aspen's hot spots would be complete without the exclusive Caribou Club... Unfortunately, you will need to be a member or know a member to get in to this iconic celeb haunt. Made up of several different dimly lit rooms, the fine dining restaurant turns into a bar/upscale nightclub later in the night. If you can get in, it is definitely worth a visit once in your life.

If you are looking for a massive mountain that has it all, Snowmass is your place! By far our favorite place to ski! Great for kids also! Their revamped base village is a fantastic addition! Lots of isolated runs! Feeling adventurous? Take the Elk Camp Chair up to the top and take your skis off to hike up to Longshot, the nation's longest trail at 5.3 miles!! You may need to rest up after the exhausting hike but that run is exhilarating - nothing but you and the glades! And the views of Maroon Bells at the top are spectacular! Tip: Go early so you can get a full day in. The free skier shuttle takes approx. 30-45 minutes from Aspen center.
