Aspen Mountain Dining
Ask those who have skied Aspen Mountain what it is like, and you are likely to hear them talk about the dining at some point. The après ski at Ajax Tavern is world-famous for good reason. Up top, the Sundeck* takes in one of Colorado’s very best mountaintop views, while Bonnie’s and Element 47 anchor opposite — yet unique Aspen — ends of the dining spectrum.
