Valentine’s Day lasts just 24 hours, but romance is a winter-long affair in Aspen Snowmass. Here’s how to sweeten your Aspen couple’s getaway with swoon-worthy experiences and lodging:
Where to play
Begin your day together with Elk-Mountain views and hot apple strudel at Bonnie’s, located 10,400 feet up Aspen Mountain. After breakfast, ski down Shadow Mountain to ride up Lift 1A, a charming two-seater. After your last run of the day, rejuvenate with a couple’s massage at St. Regis Aspen Resort’s Remède Spa. That evening, stroll hand-in-hand through downtown, pausing to browse Aspen’s art galleries and boutiques. Top it off with dinner reservations at Cache Cache, where you can nosh on French cuisine and select wine from a 4,000-bottle cellar.
Where to stay
The Little Nell offers five-star, five-diamond residences and suites with ski-in/ski-out access. Main Street’s Hotel Jerome blends Western heritage and modernity in its guestrooms and low-lit onsite lounge, the Living Room. Reminiscent of a late-century mountain manor, the St. Regis Aspen Resort offers relaxed luxury and personalized service at the foot of Aspen Mountain.
