Peaking In Aspen At The Little Nell

Growing up, I was the kid that collected snow-globes. On the top shelf of my closet, one can find snow globes from New Orleans, Disney World, and Chicago (to name a few). I loved how something so small could bring the wonder of winter to life. I feel the same excitement when discussing winter wonderlands such as The Little Nell in Aspen as an adult. I had the chance to speak with Rachel W, PR & Marketing Coordinator at the property, to learn more about why you should visit the real-life snow globe.

1. Why should someone visit The Little Nell?

The Little Nell is one of a kind. Aspen is a resort town where people from all over the world come to ski. The Little Nell is in the ideal location. The Little Nell is the only ski in ski out five star five diamond hotel in Aspen. When someone visit the property, The Little Nell's interior design is so unique to Aspen. The property is not your standard Lodge as the property has a rustic vibe with an elevated modern atmosphere. it's very contemporary, and it's very elevated, it's very modern. The interior design is uniform through out the property from the hotel to the Aspen Mountain Club, which launched this winter.

2. What is the Aspen Mountain Club?

Aspen Mountain Club is an exclusive membership. Membership ranges from So $250,000-275,000. The club has a waitlist of about thirty people to be a member. The club is a private space adjacent to the sundeck on the top of the mountain. The club gives you access to the mountain and acts as your home base while skiing. It's the place where you store your equipment, grab a bite, and hang out during your skiing adventure. Our interior designer created an elevated atmosphere that mirrors the rest of the property's aesthetic inside the club.

3. How was the property evolved during the pandemic?

The hospitality industry had to pivot in the face of the pandemic. Being a resort destination, our guests come from big cities and might have homes in the area. The increase in population has changed the dynamic of the town. Instead of only having weekend or holiday vacationers, we have newly minted locals come to town. The hotel adjusts accordingly. We offer more extended hours for breakfast, more staff for dinner to accommodate walk-ins, and continue to evolve for the needs of our guests (locals or visitors).

4. What are the must see sights a person should see in Aspen and how does the hotel add to that experience?

Aspen is wonderful. The town is big and small enough where everything is within walking distance. The top of my list is going up to our sundeck via the gondola. The gondola is more accessible than a chairlift. The sundeck offers breathtaking views of the landscape. When you look down from the sundeck, you can see many skiers and snowboarders zoom past. The property is lucky enough to be near Aspen's three other mountains. Aspen has four mountains: Aspen, Buttermilk, Highland, and Snowmass. Each mountain has its own personality. Aspen Mountain is the skiers' mountain, Buttermilk is the beginner mountain, Highlands is more elite skiers and snowboarders, and Snowmass combines the other three to create an encompassing experience. The hotel offers a free bus to take you to any other mountains at any time of day.

5. What is the future of tourisms at The Little Nell?

There is nowhere but up from here. People are still working remotely, allowing them to work from the hotel. Working remotely enables people to travel to the locations they want to experience and get their work done.
