Aspen Snowmass Holiday Gift Guide

Couple in downtown Aspen during the holidays

Updated November 2023
Lights glimmering amidst snow-covered streets, warm beverages by a roaring fire after a day on the slopes, nostalgic scents and music in the air—few things compare to the coziness of holiday time. And while giving gifts can be one of the most joyous parts of the season, it can also add some serious unnecessary stress. But fret not—whether you're hoping to help make a lasting memory, outfit your loved ones with the best gear, or support local businesses and organizations—we’ve built a gift list that is sure to be a hit, no matter who you’re shopping for.

Unforgettable Experiences

Private Ski Lesson or Clinic

No matter their skill level, there’s always an opportunity for your friend or family member to take skiing and riding to the next level. This season, purchase a private lesson or a clinic for the skier or snowboarder in your life. The beauty of a private lesson? It’s a guided experience, with a Pro providing not only personalized instruction but also an insider’s perspective on everything from secret powder stashes to the best on-mountain meals, helping to create deeper connections with skiing, riding, and our mountains.

An Unmatched Mountain Meal

The Alpin Room sits at the top of the Alpine Springs lift on Snowmass, and new Head Chef Emily Oyer is offering a fresh take on Alps-inspired cuisine this season. Imagine floor-to-ceiling windows, an incredible wine list, thoughtful shared plates, delicious entrées like Chicken Cordon Bleu or Caramelized Onion Fondue Tartiflette, all experienced in a high-alpine setting. Give the gift of a leisurely lunch or a quick bite between laps. Call 970-923-1227 to purchase a gift card—and hope they bring you with them—or secure a reservation to ensure they do.

Aspen Art Museum Membership

For any art lover in your life, an annual membership to the Aspen Art Musuem is truly a gift that will surprise and delight all year long. Not only does membership help in sustaining art education and creativity—it also means invitations to members-only events like art openings and parties, discounts at the rooftop café and museum shop, as well as access to content and the opportunity to meet featured (and famous!) artists.

A Limelight Getaway

With laidback lounges known for hosting live music, friendly bar menus serving delicious food and drinks, and locations in the vibrant heart of their respective towns, a visit to any Limelight Hotel is always like coming home while getting away. Stay in Aspen, Snowmass, or Ketchum and hit the slopes after rolling out of bed and enjoying the breakfast included with the stay. Traveling through the Mile High City? The new Limelight Denver location is the perfect pitstop (or long stay) bridging an urban environment with a cozy mountain getaway. Get the savvy traveler in your life a gift card for a night (or more!) to a Limelight Hotel and invite yourself along.

Gear That Keeps Giving

A Gold Ski Tune with Ski Phantom Glide Application at Four Mountain Sports

It’s easy to neglect gear, but a ski or board tune can make all the difference while carving down groomers or tackling steeps. Take your giftee’s equipment to any of Aspen Snowmass’ nine Four Mountain Sports locations offering tuning services for a Gold Tune with PHANTOM, a permanent, one-time application base treatment that increases glide with its patent-pending polymer technology. Bonus: It’s also more environmentally friendly than your standard wax, which leaves residue and particles in the snow.

From hiking the Bowl on Highlands on a bluebird day to lounging at Bonnie’s deck on Aspen Mountain while fat flakes fall, this is the outerwear they’ll want.


Designed for the fashion-forward adventurers in your life, the AETHER collection from ASPENX was created to be worn well but never worn out. Choose from thoughtful pieces that go from the slopes of Snowmass to the streets of Aspen like the men's Ute Insulated Shirt or the women’s Phase Full Zip.
