Aspen Lodging

When you visit Aspen Snowmass on a ski vacation, there are lots of lodgings to choose from. Aspen Snowmass is enormous, so the first choice to make is regarding the area you want to stay in. Most Aspen Snowmass accommodations could be broadly categorized into four areas or types.

Aspen Town – Close to the Gondola: Accommodations here provide the distinct advantage of easy access to Aspen Mountain and all that the town has to offer.

Aspen Town – Other: Lodging here may require a bit of a walk or a shuttle bus ride to get to any of the ski areas.

Snowmass: Snowmass lodging is mostly ski-in ski-out to the Snowmass ski resort. Snowmass is particularly popular with families.
Aspen Highlands: The base area has a small amount of lodging that provides convenient access to the Aspen Highlands ski area.

Aspen Hotels Close to the Slopes

Most of the Aspen hotels at the south end of town are conveniently very close to the slopes of Aspen Mountain. There is very little true ski-in ski-out accommodation in Aspen, but staying near the gondola is still a very prime location and many of the best Aspen hotels are located here.

Snowmass Lodging

Aspen Highland Lodging

If nightlife and a multitude of shopping opportunities isn’t a high priority, you could also stay at the base area of Aspen Highlands. The village is very small and the number of shops, restaurants, bars and other activities is very limited. Of course you can always catch a bus to shop or party in Aspen!

Buttermilk Mountain also has very limited accommodation options at the base area.
