Let's not forget the X games are at Buttermilk.
Of course it says "Aspen" on tv so everyone will think he's nuts when he says a place that sounds like it should have a white Aunt Jemima on the label.
X Games is probably about as far from Aspen as NYC is to the Super Bowl.in Jersey.
People don't realize the half pipe is like 100 yards from the highway either.
Twochord no one brought up Aspen/Snowmass cause you aren't going there solo.
If you want to stay at the hostel for $66/night fine.
Plenty in Aspen. Free buses. A fantastic area Aspen/Snowmass. That's 5 1/2 hours from Denver!
Fly into Aspen maybe for the extra 250.-300. It's worth it. The van shuttle costs $240 roundtrip
I have seen people get riidiculous deals flying into Aspen but you have to look out for it.
