Aspen Travel Guide

Aspen's reputation as a holiday destination precedes it: the name is synonymous with glitz, glamour, unparalleled skiing, and spectacular mountain scenery. Most reviews would have one believe that Aspen is a holiday resort exclusively for the rich and famous. Although this elite resort does host super stars such as Jack Nicholson and Cher, anyone with a lot of cash can experience the powder snow, superb skiing and sophisticated accommodation, as well as good dining and high-society shopping, with an unrivalled range of winter and summer activities. An Aspen holiday in summer is more affordable as prices are lower at this time; there are numerous trails for hiking, biking and horse riding, as well as renowned cultural festivals of dance and music to keep visitors occupied when there is no snow. The resort attracts thousands of Americans, as well as European visitors, on holiday every year. Aspen began as a silver mining town with the discovery of the world's largest silver nugget in the 1870s. After the crash of the silver market its economy dwindled until it was recognised as a prime ski location. The ostentatious après-ski is one of the major draw cards of Aspen - a chance for the rich and famous to mingle.
