Aspen / Snowmass Travel Tips

– Lodging

Timberline Condos (www.thetimberline.com)

Great location, just 150 feet from the slopes so pretty much ski in / ski out, Inside the unit the furniture, decoration and appliances are from 1991, but well maintained. (they upgrade one tv to lcd :))

– Food / Restaurants

Mezzaluna Restaurant (www.mezzalunaaspen.com) $$$

Nice place, nice pizza, the steak was really good although this is an Italian Place, don’t try the mac and cheese, they are not what you are expecting.

Matsuhisa (www.matsuhisaaspen.com) $$$$

After getting some recommendations from friends over FaceBook, we went to this trendy place and it was really good, I’m not a sushi fan, but everything was really good. Do not leave this place without having the Bento box

Mountain Dragon Chinese Restaurant $$

Average chinese food, this place is a pool bar and a restaurant at the same time, so looks like they make more money on the beers than the food, unless you are craving for chinese avoid it, you will have the same treat as your local all you can eat buffet put pricier

Piñons Restaurant (www.pinons.net) $$$$

Excellent place, great food & selection. Trendy place so make reservations first.

– Overall

Snowmass is an excellent place for intermediate skiers like me, great weather (although this is random), great trails, good lifts and mountain restaurants. The town of Aspen is a 15 minutes drive from Snowmass, and if you have the time / skills you can ski on the other 3 mountains with the same lift tickets, all of them no more than a 15 minutes drive.

This is one of the places that is on our “return list”
