If you want to visit Aspen in luxury, The Little Nell is Aspen’s only five- star, five-diamond hotel. It’s a favorite destination for winter, summer, and for taking in the breathtaking fall colors. 

Year Round Adventures at the Little Nell

Along with the luxury accommodations, the Little Nell offers outdoor activities for the adventurous.

Winter: Aspen is famous for its skiing and The Little Nell offers skiing and plenty of other winter activities including, Heli-skiing which carries guests to more than 22,000 acres of skiable terrain. For those who prefer cross-country skiing, the terrain offers a choice of skiing through secluded wooded areas, meadows, or leisurely trails along Castle Creek. 

Powder Tours are a little bit different kind of adventure (snowboards are also welcome). Up to 12 skiers ride in a snowcat group, and enjoy the exhilaration of skiing some of the finest powder snow you’ll ever experience. There’s nothing like making fresh tracks in the powder.

Other winter activities include dog sledding, snowmobiling, and snowshoe tours.

Fly Fishing

Fly fishing includes a gourmet lunch.

Summer: Summer at the Little Nell in Aspen offers up just as much adventure as the winter. In the summer months, anglers from novice to expert enjoy fly fishing outings complete with gourmet lunches served on white tablecloths with wine and fine silverware. 

Biking is another summer favorite. The Little Nell provides a fleet of Orbea bikes to choose from and a list of rides for cyclists of all levels – even guided tours. 

If you were one of those kids who wanted to be a cowboy growing up, Cowboy Camp 101 makes that dream come true with an overnight horse pack trip! Guests stay in individual tents with cots, but a chef and fishing guide are part of the package. 

Other summer activities include golfing, hiking and stand-up paddle boarding. For a little extra fun, geocoaching combines hiking and a treasure hunt. The items you find are yours to keep!


The Little Nell Hotel celebrated its 20 anniversary in 2009 with a facelift in the form of a redesign of all its rooms and suites.
