- Special to Hotel Aspen by Eimile Pesch
Have you ever wanted to experience Aspen but don’t have the time or money to spend the full week it takes to soak all of Aspen’s summer goodness in?

Because it’s got a little bit everything and something for everyone.
Affordable Aspen, CO Vacations Made Easy at Hotel Aspen
A ski trip to Aspen is a “normal” outing for international celebrities and CEOs, but it is only bucket list item for the rest of us. Since Hotel Aspen is one of the most affordable hotels in town – especially with the added value of complimentary breakfast, internet, a healthy après ski offering, pool, hot tubs and other four-star hotel amenities – what do you do when you walk out the door?
It’s the time of year when Aspen shines and sparkles with a radiance that comes from twinkling lights, fresh white snow and a healthy dose of cheer. Aspenites have been reveling in the wonderful early season snowfall and prepping town for the busy, festive and fun 2013 holiday season. Aspen’s annual homage to the holidays, the 12 Days of Aspen, begins on Friday, December 20 for almost 2 weeks of creative activities to make this an incredibly special holiday in Aspen.
The skies have been busy the last couple of months in the Colorado high country, plunking an impressive early season base onto Aspen and Snowmass mountains (over 60 inches have landed thus far on Aspen mountain). As a result, locals enjoyed the fruits of Mother Nature 2 weeks early this year, when Aspen Mountain opened lifts for a sneak peak weekend of skiing on November 16 and 17 with 6 inches of fresh powder, 3 lifts and 21 trails. Aspen, as well as Snowmass, will reopen Saturday, November 23 for the 2013-2014 season.
