Ready to break away from the deadlines, meetings, appointments and super-busy schedule of the 9 to 5—if only it were 9 to 5, right? Aspen is just what the doctor ordered for relaxation. Here’s your weekend itinerary to refresh, renew and relax, relax, relax in Aspen.


3:00–4:00 p.m. — Check in to the comfortable luxury of the Limelight. Pour yourself a soothing bath with the Body Eclipse Spa Line products and soak away the cares of your travel.

4:00–7:00 p.m. — Head down to the Lounge for a Happy Hour dinner of Chef Joe Gonyo’s light, Italian fare. Pull up a seat by the fireplace and nod along to the live, local band.

8:00–10:00 p.m. — Make your way to the Rooftop Terraces. Order a bottle of wine or a champagne package. Sink into an overstuffed lounge chair. And watch alpenglow paint the peaks and wash over the valley. Cheers!


10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. — Let nature soothe your soul. Ride the Silver Queen Gondola to the top of Ajax and revel in the panorama. Stroll along the Nature Trail loop. Or catch the West Side Trail and descend all the way back to town while aspen leaves sing your soundtrack.

1:00–4:00 p.m. — Indulge yourself at The Aspen Club & Spa. Enjoy your favorite massage and skin treatments or try the Heaven Afternoon Tea Ritual.

6:00–9:00 p.m. — Take your pick of world class classical performances at the Aspen Music Festival and School. The music will move you.


10:00–11:30 a.m. — Center your body and spirit with yoga on the mountain at the Ajax sundeck. Ask our staff about reserving private instruction on the weekend. (Free classes are offered Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.) Namaste.

11:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m. — Brunch at The Sundeck is a majestic way to end your weekend of relaxation.

Breathe deep, and carry the Aspen spirit home with you. We’ll see you next time.
