La Cantina

It is not difficult to find La Cantina: look for the only adobe building on Main Street. Located in Downtown Aspen across from the Hotel Jerome, La Cantina is a muy caliente hang out for margaritas, nachos, and enchiladas, even when it’s blustery and cold in the middle of the winter.

Beginner/Intermediate Skiers: Skiing Snowmass

Despite its massive size, Snowmass has relatively little in the way of beginner terrain, with just 6 percent of the runs bearing a green circle. It more than makes up for this shortcoming, however, with thousands of acres of some of the best intermediate trails to be found anywhere, including many runs that are suitable for skiers with a just a few days’ experience under their belts.

Beginner/Intermediate Skiers: Skiing Aspen Highlands

If you’ve spent any time in the Aspen area, you’re probably well aware of Aspen Highlands’ reputation as a mecca for expert skiers. The steep runs of Highland Bowl and Steeplechase are clearly the mountain’s public face, but there’s plenty of great terrain for intermediates and even beginners if you know where to look.
