Aspen and The Limelight Lodge

I had a great time in Aspen this weekend. I got to stay at The Limelight Lodge which is a great location in Aspen. You can walk to everything very easily. They have a complimentary continental breakfast with the stay that is much more than a typical continental breakfast. The Limelight has live music 5 nights a week in the lobby area and you can order drinks and food. The rooms are very nice and the beds are very comfortable. They have ski lockers and a private skier shuttle to take you to all 4 mountains. They have a nice pool and two big hot tubs. I really liked that they had a laundry room that guest can use during their stay.
The Limelight Lodge Inside Tracks is a complimentary ski/ride guide service offered in partnership with Ski & Snowboard Schools of Aspen/Snowmass for Limelight Lodge guests. Offered 2 days per week, this service will provide a unique opportunity for Limelight Lodge guests to experience the sensational terrain and services of the four mountains of Aspen/Snowmass combined with the expertise of the Schools top professionals.
Aspen is a great destination with first class dining, shopping and skiing. Thank you Aspen and The Limelight Lodge.

Limelight Lodge Aspen

I had the chance to stay at the Limelight Lodge this past weekend and it was beyond my expectations. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable, and accommodating. One of my favorite things about the Limelight was the live band (they have live music almost every night of the week during ski season) , they had a great blue grass playing called Stray Grass from Grand Junction, Colorado. Ski valet, skier shuttle, huge outdoor hot tubs, outdoor pool, and free continental breakfast make the Limelight Lodge an ideal place to stay in Aspen. I can't wait to get back!

I just got back from a ski vacation to Northstar in Tahoe. It was a great trip. I flew into Reno and caught a shuttle on North Tahoe Express for about a 40 minute easy ride to the mountain of Northstar. I got settled in my condo and then went to dinner at The Village at Baxter's. The dinner was very good and I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. The village has some very nice shops and restaurants.
Tuesday I got up and went skiing. It was a bluebird day and the skiing conditions were great. I like Northstar as it had many long groomed trails. The views were gorgeous and it was not crowded. Northstar reminded me of a smaller version of Beaver Creek. Northstar is a family friendly resort as it is quiet and easy to get to with easy access to dining and shops. I would not recommend Northstar for those looking to stay out late and party as the shuttle stops at 10 p.m. and the restaurants close at that time as well. I enjoyed my time in Northstar and hope to go back soon. If you are interested or have any questions contact me at or 1-800-845-7157 ext. 305.

Resort at Squaw Creek~ Sqauw Valley Resort

The Resort at Squaw Creek is the place to stay when visiting the Olympic Valley.   Ranked as one of the top ski resort hotels, the Resort at Squaw Creek offers luxurious accomodations and a full-service hotel.  

This past weekend I stayed at the hotel, located away from the hustle and bustle of the village.  I enjoyed the peace and quiet and yet still was able to ski in.and out with the private lift access right outside the hotel.   No lugging equipment!  At the end of the day the hot tub was the place to watch the beautiful Tahoe sunset while soaking my tired, first day of the season legs. 

Squaw Valley is a world class resort with over 4,000 acres offering enough terrain to satisfy every level of skier.   So, if Squaw is on your list of resorts to ski or ride contact me for more details.  Mention this post and receive $50 off of your stay.

Breckenridge was insane yesterday, they reported 26" in 24 hours! One of the deepest powder days of the year! The clouds cleared and the sun came out for a spectacular "bluebird day". With another 3" this morning and snowing all day, conditions have never been so good!
