Whenever I fly over snow covered mountains, I am reminded of the rush of skiing down the slopes on my first trip to Aspen.
Growing up in China, the idea of skiing was both thrilling and intimidating. I was ambitious to take up skiing in my mid-20s when I first moved to DC, but quickly determined I was too old to learn. However my kids became avid skiers so I planned a trip to Aspen, which promised a great deal of powdery snow.
The drive to the hotel wound up and down stone mountains, so majestic and silent. Snow blanketed most of the peaks, but you could always see the red rocks peeking out. We passed by a charming city lined with art galleries, cute restaurants, and one of a kind boutiques, before arriving at our hotel, Little Nell. Nestled right at the foot of the mountain, it had a rustic chic vibe with a contemporary color palette. There was a warmth and lightness to the décor and a modern twist to the furniture.
