For 7 years in a row I went to Aspen and I loved staying at the base of the Gondola. Aspen is by far the perfect skiing location, there are 3 mountains to ski so anyone from beginner to experienced can have a wonderful time here. There is free bus service so you can ride the bus to the mountain of your choice, Ajax is out the front door, buttermilk and snowmass are close and the night life an restaurants can not be beat. I love this town. It is great for families, couples, singles. Fun for all.
