... came in about 15 min. The ride to the hotel, which is located in downtown Aspen, was about 10-15 min. The last time I was in the area I stayed at Snowmass and decided that this time I wanted to stay downtown so that I could have easy access to restaurants for dinner and be able to walk around and look around the town in the evenings. I chose the Annabelle Inn since it is one of the lower priced options in town and it is in a ...
... people skiing were like pros and even the kids were good! There were some cuties that wouldn't have been older than three taking the lifts up and skiing down by themselves - MAD!! There is a great bar out the front of our hotel that looks out to the slopes called Vega Vega and we indulged in a cocktail or two for happy our after our days skiing.

What an amazing way to start my travels!
