Hi There, We are 2 intermediate ski couples from England who are planning a trip out to Aspen/Snowmass Jan/Feb 2012 for 10/11 days, avoiding the X Games at the end of Jan.
We have all skied various areas of the U.S, and now want to experience what Aspen has to offer, in the way of both skiing and partying!
Our questions are: Do we visit before the games ie mid Jan or leave it until February. In general how do the snow conditions compare?
Preferably we would like to be positioned in Aspen, but realize that a more economical option would be Snowmass and shuttle in for a night out on the town. We have stayed in both Hotels and Condos in the past, can anyone suggest or recommend any?
Maybe someone has done something similar recently? We would be very interested in any helpful information or experiences!
Many Thanks, Sutts.
