Known for its appeal to celebrities and corporate executives alike, Aspen, Colo., ranks as one of the top ski destinations in North America. The city serves as year-round home to approximately 6,700 residents along with visitors to the many seasonal Aspen vacation rentals. As one of the United States' most exclusive areas and the most expensive place to purchase real estate, Aspen offers condos, single-family homes and even mobile home parks.

Aspen is home to four ski resorts:

  • Aspen Highlands -- Known for the intense skiing of the Highland Bowl, the resort offers a recently redesigned lift system for quick arrival on the mountain.
  • Aspen Mountain -- Known as "Ajax" among the locals, the resort is on the north flank of the mountain of the same name, just outside Aspen.
  • Buttermilk Ski Area -- A skiing area and an unincorporated community, Buttermilk is regarded as the easiest mountain in Aspen and has played host to the ESPN Winter X-games a number of times.
  • Snowmass -- The ski area is part of a complex known as Aspen/Snowmass ski resort in Snowmass Village near Aspen.

In addition to skiing, Aspen also boasts a lovely downtown featuring shopping in upscale boutiques, fine dining and salons.

As a major winter tourist destination that also offers ample summertime recreational options, Aspen is the nation's priciest place to buy real estate. Fortunately for lovers of the powder, Aspen luxury rentals are available. To find out more, please contact us today.
