The Little Nell is the only ski in/ski out hotel located at the base of Aspen Mountain and that’s the reason most people choose to stay there, especially in winter. The mountains are the main attraction and there is so much to do year-round. In winter, there’s cross-country skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice climbing, and a season-long calendar of events with big events like Winterskol, the X Games drawing huge crowds. Summer is about hiking, biking, fishing and all the cultural events that make Aspen a world-class destination from Aspen Music Festival concerts and the Aspen Ideas Festival to the long-running Food & Wine Classic. With great skiing, international beautiful people and so many activities in Aspen, it’s no wonder you hear so many people say, “I came to Aspen on vacation and ended up staying 25 years.”
The Little Nell is located at the base of the gondola at the foot of Aspen Mountain. Skiing, hiking and activities on top of Aspen Mountain (like free bluegrass music on Sundays in the summer) are easily accessible from The Little Nell. Because Aspen is so small and The Little Nell is located in the heart of downtown, we are close to all the activities Aspen has to offer.
