A popular choice among families, The Gant sits near the base of Aspen Mountain and features 140 one- to four-bedroom condos with Aspen-inspired decor (leather and wood accents, rich colors, and scenic mountain artwork). The hotel is on a large piece of land, and has two heated outdoor pools with accompanying Jacuzzis, as well as five tennis courts, so it remains lively in both the winter and summer months. But the hotel is farther from the center of town than some other resorts (although it remains within walking distance), so those hoping to be in the middle of the action may consider the nearby Aspen Square Condominium Hotel.
In Downtown Aspen, The Gant is just a short walk from the base of Aspen Mountain, as well as Cooper Avenue's high-end shops, galleries, and restaurants.
Set against the Rocky Mountains, the landscape of Aspen is picturesque, and offers four mountains to cater to all levels of skiers. One lift ticket grants access to all four mountains, although only top-notch skiers should try their hand at Aspen Mountain. Those who do not plan to ski day-in and day-out have plenty of other options, such as shopping, and even dog-sledding. During the summer, activities like hiking, fishing, and golfing are popular.
