When you see the pile of firewood crawling up the side of the building like a new wall, you know you have arrived at Lift One Condominiums. The wood can only mean ski season is in full swing or just around the corner. The one-, two-, and three-bedroom units have separate owners, therefore décor and style vary according to individual tastes. But all of the condos feature full kitchens, balconies and wood burning fireplaces. The slopes are a block away and downtown is a mere five-minute walk away.
Since 1970, this town-mainstay has been one of Aspen's more affordable lodging choices. Located on Main Street (you cannot miss the towering spread eagle sculpture perched on the roof), the lodge offers easy access to downtown, and the free ski shuttle stops just outside the front door. The rooms feature two queen beds and limited kitchen space, as well as wood paneled walls, fireplaces and work desks/dining tables. The rooms on the upper floors have balconies. Check out the website or call the lodge for more information.
The Prospector Condominiums are a great way to experience Aspen in style. The downtown location is just across the street from the Wheeler Opera House and Crystal Palace.

If romance is on the agenda, the rooms personal Jacuzzi on the sundeck makes getting snowed-in a bonus.

The club suites and cottages are the epitome of romantic luxury, and feature overstuffed furniture, in-room Jacuzzis and rich wood tones. The antler chandeliers will be sure to complete the mountain atmosphere.
