My husband and i are leaving the kids with Grandma and taking a trip to Aspen this July. Neither of us have been to the area. We are interested in active things during the day (hiking, biking, rafting, etc) and in the evenings nice dinners, music festival, theater. Would it be too much driving to stay in Snowmass at the Viceroy and drive to Aspen and surrounding area for these things? We don't mind some driving, but don't love the idea of being back and forth all the time. It is about $1000 cheaper to stay at the Viceroy compared to 5 star hotels in Aspen (St Regis or The Gant). We are also considering the Limelight in Aspen but it doesn't have a spa for massage which would be nice.
Any opinions are helpful! Thanks!
