What is it like to live in Aspen?

Whether it’s from tourists, friends, family members, or even our Colorado neighbors, there’s one question we’re perpetually asked from out-of-towners; “What is it like to live in Aspen?”

Everybody already knows Aspen for being one of the most coveted holiday destinations in America, for being home to some of the best skiing anywhere in the world, and — more importantly — for hosting some of the best apres-ski parties you could ever dream to attend.

While all of those are very true, perhaps it’s all of these preconceived notions about our mountain town that makes Aspen a place where you already feel at home. However, as full-time Aspen locals, we know there’s so much more to the Aspen lifestyle than just five-star hotels and luxury ski resorts.

Here, we’re excited to share everything we love about living in Aspen with you here so that when the time comes for you to choose your next adventure, you know exactly what the Aspen lifestyle has to offer.
