First Tracks

You know you like to be first. First Tracks is another adventure designed exclusively for guests of the Limelight. Get ready to enjoy access to Aspen Mountain before the gondola opens to the not-quite-as-lucky general public. Just you, a few others, and miles of untouched corduroy. Of course, if Mother Nature cooperates, your morning could start with a glorious run buried in knee-deep powder. Our fingers are crossed!

Please contact the front desk for more details.

Snowshoe Tours

Sometimes you just want to get away from it all. In partnership with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, guests of the Limelight are able to enjoy complimentary snowshoe tours throughout the Aspen area.
