In a town known for world class skiing, it is difficult for ski shops to cleave out a niche for themselves, but Incline has done it through rental equipment. Everything about the shop is renter-friendly. It offers the widest selection of top-notch rentals, including turn-friendly shape skis by all the top-notch makers like Volkl, Dynastar, and Head, to name a few. To avoid the morning rush, the store stays open later than most, so you can collect your gear the night before. Overnight ski and storage lockers are also available.
Those who deem fashion just as important as performance will like this store. The shop stocks all the latest ski wear by Descent and sometimes hard to find Spyder, as well as top-notch and hip essentials like goggles, sunglasses and hats. You will also find the best in skis and boots. Demo before you buy and the demo fee is applied to your purchase. Complete rental packages include high performance shape skis. Overnight service on ski and boot repair is offered, and the Aspen Daily News has rated its state-of-the-art ski tuning as the best in town. Hiking gear is available in the summer, including Leki trekking poles, which make it easy for the knees.
Owner Michael Shandling, cousin of world-renowned comedian Garry Shandling, has funneled the family sense of humor onto T-shirts. The end result is a famous souvenir shop popular with tourists. The T-shirts are all neatly aligned along the walls in the manner of paintings at an art gallery, giving the shop an immediate "this-place-is-different" look. With the exception of the Aspen logo shirts most, if not all, have humorous slants to them both literally and pictorially. In addition to T-shirts there are also sweats, caps and popular comedic doormats.

This Cooper Avenue Mall store is a paradise for cowpokes and cowgirls (yes, Aspen still has a few). It is a virtual cowboy palace, laden with Stetson hats, handmade cowboy boots, bolo ties and classic belt buckles that could pass for small shields. For a night out on the town, the shop has a full line of western wear, and for the cool Aspen nights, be sure to pick up a set of flannel pajamas. So if you are looking to deck out before your vacation at the T Lazy 7 Ranch, Kemo Sabe will make sure you leave looking like a full-fledged cowboy. If you just want a simple souvenir, you can pick up a regular baseball cap.
This cluttered shop on the Hyman Avenue Mall is a mixture of western jewelry and Old West antiques and oddities. Half of the shop features handmade jewelry and belt buckles in all shapes and sizes. You can shop for simple and ornate turquoise rings or sterling horse head buckles. You almost get the feeling you are in a Wild West museum as you gaze at Arvo Ojala's personal quick draw gun, rare Zuni dolls and authentic Native American peace pipes. The store also has an interesting selection of antique knives, rifles and guns.

It is a true treat to wander into an outdoor shop such as Ute and get the immediate sense that these people know what they are talking about. Its knowledge is also reflected in its stock. North Face shells, Marmot parkas, Patagonia fleece, Leki trekking poles, hiking boots, sandals, snowshoes, hats, goggles, gloves, maps, books, telemark equipment, packs and climbing gear are just some of the items available. The shop's rental program is also topnotch and rents out everything from skis and snowshoes, to backpacks and kayaking gear.
For over 25 years this deli/meat market has provided a nice counter-balance to the perception that Aspen's dining options are limited to tofu shops and sushi bars. The place is a true throwback that offers an entire array of sandwiches like liverwurst, bologna, barbecued pork, prosciutto, corned beef and honey maple turkey. Or if you are really hungry opt for its famous meatloaf sandwich. Salads, soups, and desserts such as brownies, cookies and lemon bars are also available. The market area has a variety of aged meats, seafood and even caviar.
You do not need directions to this bakery. All you have to do is look for a line of people, or follow the sweet scent that tauntingly lingers outside its doorway. From the moment this bakery opens to the moment it closes it always has a throng of customers. Its always-fresh muffins, cookies, and croissants are popular especially with an accompanying espresso, latté or cappuccino. The greatness of its gelati and frozen yogurt can be attested by almost always seeing someone outside the doors licking a cone no matter how bitter the weather.
