Aspen, Colorado

A top choice among celebrities since the 70s, Aspen is a guaranteed good time. Think great skiing for all abilities, excellent dining choices and, if you’re in need, options for some serious retail therapy. Here’s our need-to-know guide…


Sometimes, only a classic will do. Which is why the Aspen St Regis is ideal for us. Sitting at the base of Aspen Mountain it’s perfectly situated between the skiing and the town, with great views in an elegant-yet-cosy setting. It’s also home to a Thai-inspired wellness spa and three restaurants. We love Supper Club at The Snow Lodge, an evening that combines delicious Italian food with cocktails and live entertainment in an intimate setting, surrounded by local artwork.

For committed skiers, The Little Nell is Aspen’s only ski in, ski out hotel, with light-filled rooms and multiple options for both formal and informal dining. They do a great coffee too, if you’re ready for a pit stop. Its best feature, though, is the rooftop pool, which has incredible views of the surrounding scenery.


No trip is complete without an element of retail therapy. Downtown Aspen is great for luxury shopping of all kinds. We always make time for coffee and a browse at Gorsuch, the iconic ski retailer that’s existed in Aspen since 1978 and is home to all the latest Perfect Moment pieces.


Aspen’s culinary scene is almost as famous as its ski slopes and there are a string of incredible restaurants to choose from. Catch Steak offers a slice of New York steakhouse, in a ski-appropriate setting. Go for the menu, stay for the vibes. 

Founded by the iconic Chef Nobu, Matsuhisa is Japanese dining at its very best. Tucked away inside a 120 year old Victorian House in downtown Aspen, its understated elegance is an ideal environment after a day on the slopes. Plus, if you’re a Nobu regular you’ll recognise some of their signature dishes on the menu.


It’s no secret that we love aprés, but first, coffee. Always. Pre-ski, head to Gorsuch Ski Cafe, it’s right on the edge of town and does great coffee and matcha. 

Aspen’s aprés scene is a little less infamous than some of its European counterparts, but there are still some great spots to try. Our top pick is Swiss-inspired Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro on Highlands Mountain – an Aspen hot spot since the 1970s only accessible by skis or snowboards. Go for the raclette, and stay for the post-lunch dance party.
