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

What's on at Aspen Snowmass?

Aspen Snowmass has a huge range of exciting events coming up in the next few weeks. From Olympic Qualifiers to Snow festivals, there is something for everyone!

With the massive snow totals that Aspen have been producing recently - 45cm in the past week - we want to let you know what you can do off the slopes as well as on! The Toyota Grand Prix Olympic Selection finishes this weekend in preparation for the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, but thats only the beginning...

Ullr Nights are happening until the end of the season. Not sure what this is? Well, its a tradition at Snowmass in appreciation of the Nordic God of snow Ullr. This may sound a little odd, but the nights  are a perfect way to spend your Friday evenings after the sun has gone down at Aspen Snowmass. Included in the festivities is: live music, a bonfire with s'mores and hot chocolate, tubing, ice skating, and an a la carte menu to celebrate. Not only this, but the Breathtaking Alpine Coaster which premiered this season with also be open for exhilarating rides. 

Another exciting event which takes away those January blues is the annual X-Games Aspen. This festival brings the best winter sportsmen and women together to exhibit their amazing skills. All competitions are free for the public to view so make sure you make your way to Aspen for the 25th to 28th of January! Aside from the sport, there are also a vast range of musical events staged on Buttermilk Mountain to really make this a festival for the diary.

These events are only for January, but the delights of Aspen Snowmass are year round. Go to our article on Experiencing how the other half live at Aspen Snowmass to explore more of the special world that is Aspen Snowmass.
