“A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano.” ~ Lloyd Christmas, Dumb & Dumber
Charter a luxury private flight to Aspen and enjoy some of the best skiing in North America, whether you’re returning a Samonsite briefcase or not. This iconic vacation town is a hot-spot for top tier business executives, celebrities and affluent travelers, making it a popular destination for luxury travelers.
Situated in a remote area of the Rocky Mountains’ Sawatch Range and Elk Mountains, Aspen was originally founded as a mining camp during the Colorado Silver Boom and later named after the area’s abundance of aspen trees.
The collapse of the silver market led to its “quiet years”, and the town’s population dwindled to around 1,000 in 1930s; industrialist Walter Paepcke reversed the city’s fortunes by developing an abundance of properties around Aspen Mountain as it was developing into a ski resort.
Later in 20th century, Aspen would become a popular celebrity retreat — Hunter S. Thompson, the famous hedonistic Gonzo journalist, wrote from a downtown hotel and ran a nearly successful campaign to become to the town’s sheriff in 1970; after relocating here, singer/songwriter John Denver wrote two songs about the town (Aspenglow & Starwood in Aspen). Thompson & Denver helped popularized the town among the counter-culture crowds in the 1970’s, and the city continued to grow despite its reputations for debauchery.
Today, it’s best known for perfectly powdered slopes, immaculate five-star resort properties and an array of fine-dining experiences that attracts luxury travelers from across the country and around the world. Check out some of our top choices for things to do after your private flight arrives at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport.
If skiing isn’t really your thing, then there are still plenty of things for you to enjoy in the city. A good way to kick off a vacation is by eating somewhere amazing, and that’s easily accomplished in Aspen.
For the most exclusive dining experience in Aspen, grab yourself a membership at the Caribou Club. Its inventive and carefully curated menu is comprised of locally sourced ingredients, and prepared by award winning chefs. They also have several bars, dance floors, and tons of yearly events to keep things fun and interesting.
If you’re hoping for a more casual dining experience without missing out on the gourmet food, then head over to the White House Tavern. This specialty boutique lunch stop offers gourmet sandwiches, meticulously crafted cocktails, wine, and select beers. Set in a charming cottage with gorgeous views of the mountains, private jet travelers couldn’t hope for a better space in which to enjoy a delicious meal.
