Pitkin County Airport, connected with dozen of US cities, is a convenient entry to Aspen town.


Everyone's heard of Aspen, the Colorado silver-boom mining town done good -- so good, in fact, it's an A-list favorite with some of the most expensive real estate in the United States. And its Pitkin County Airport is just a few short miles from the slopes. The airfield, which connects with dozens of US cities, is just three miles from the town of Aspen, surrounded by the ski area of Aspen Mountain (known locally as Ajax), Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk. Another ski area, Snowmass Village, is just six miles from the tarmac. Aspen, which features in several songs by late resident John Denver, claims a total of 319 miles of tree-lined Rocky Mountains trails. Common celebrity crash pads include the five-star Little Nell, Hotel Jerome and the St Regis. Did you know? Aspen's Buttermilk hosts the Winter X Games, while the 2017 FIS alpine skiing World Cup finals were held there.
