About Owner

Chalet USA owners Helen Gienke & Rob Brown stumbled upon Colorado, USA in 2001, whilst on career break from their UK Marketing jobs, skied there all winter & never looked back. We wanted to share this fantastic USA ski holiday experience with other UK skiers, so we set up Chalets USA in 2004. We live in Colorado, know the ski resorts and the accommodation and can give you advice of finding the right skiing holiday for you. www.chalets-usa.co.uk

Aspen delights

We recently spent 5 days in Aspen and wanted to share some of the delights of this fabulous ski resort with you:

Sky Hotel, Aspen - THE party hotel

Sky Hotel Aspen Colorado USA
We stayed in the Sky Hotel, known for its legendary nightlife & celebrity watching. The 39 degrees bar & lounge were certainly buzzing and the cocktails superb, but the rooms surprisingly quiet. 

Sky Hotel Aspen is "ski in", you can virtually ski into the pool(!) and a very short walk out to the gondola.

With its whimsical giant lobby chairs & light shade you feel a bit like you're Alice in Wonderland when sampling the "altitude adjustment" nightly apres ski.

The stylish rooms have faux fur throws and you'll see guests parading around in the leopard & zebra print bathrobes!

We managed to squeeze in some skiing between property tours...

Aspen / Snowmass has had around 300 cm of snow since Oct 1, conditions are amazing and there's a huge amount of terrain for all ability levels.

Highlands bowl opened during our visit and is an unbelievably experience for advanced / expert skiers.

We even found some fun black runs off the Tiehack lift at Buttermilk, traditionally a more gentle ski area for beginners, so ideal for families with some beginners & some more advanced skiers.

And for apres ski...

Aspen sleigh Pine Creek cookhouse
Aspen sleigh ride to Pine Creek Cookhouse
From the historic ghost town of Ashcroft just outside Aspen we took a magical moonlit sleigh ride to the Pine Creek Cookhouse for dinner. Alternatively guests can choose to Snowshoe or cross-country ski to lunch or dinner.

We also partook in apres ski at the famous Ajax Tavern at the base of the gondola in the Little Nell Hotel Aspen - oysters, crab legs, fondue & champagne, not a bad start to the evening!

For late night entertainment we headed to "Belly Up" - THE place for live music with over 300 concerts each year.
