The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Follow Shaun White in Aspen

The tony ski town is home to backcountry double-black runs, X Games terrain, and crawling underground cave tours for adrenaline junkies.


1. Where to Stay

Warm up in front of indoor and outdoor fireplaces at Viceroy Snowmass.  

Take advantage of ski valets, slopeside waxing, and two outdoor whirlpools at the Viceroy Snowmass (from $425), which opened in December. Your room comes outfitted with a gas fireplace, private sundeck, deep-soaking tub, and a fully equipped kitchen.

Admire views of the World Cup racecourse from the courtyard hot tub at the Limelight Lodge (from $300), which was razed and rebuilt last year. Snack on complimentary wine and cheese in the lobby from 4 to 6 p.m.

Coast down empty slopes before they open for the day through the Little Nell’s ski concierge service for guests (from $810). All but the street-front rooms have views of the mountain.
