You know you’re in an upscale ski town when you see Chanel, Dior, Malo, and Fendi shops in a three-block walk. Being Aspen, most visitors are outfitted smartly, including the latest Prada ski jackets. Actually, fashion here blends tasteful western chic with a more jet set, designer look. Beyond fashion, though, one notes the large number of international skiers and staff. Mainly South Americans (to my surprise), Australians, and some Europeans make up the energetic, amiable staff working the slopes and in town, and the potpourri of languages spoken among the skiers affords a unique, and positive, addition to the whole trip.
The third noteworthy item is the superb quality of just about all that you need on a ski trip – well laid out ski lifts with plenty of chair lift padding, excellent food (in town and on the slopes), and a fun après-ski nightlife (for young and old).
