Though now considered Vail's glitzier neighbor, Aspen residents still take pride in the fact that Aspen was a town before it was a ski destination, whereas Vail was built as a ski resort in the 1960s. But nowadays, little of the quaint mining town that Aspen once was remains. Sure, streets are charming and it has that small-town feel, but now high-end shops such as Prada, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton line the streets, as do chichi gourmet restaurants. Celebrity sightings are normal, particularly during the winter peak season, from November to March. But Aspen's Rocky Mountain setting is picturesque, and all levels of skiers are welcome here. Those who do not plan to ski day-in, day-out have plenty of other options, such as shopping -- and even dog-sledding! Take a stroll through Aspen in this slideshow and get ready to plan your next visit!
