OUR CREW

More than anything else, our crew is responsible for delivering the Limelight secret sauce. They are your guides to adventure (and adventurers themselves). They are your concierges when you need a bag carried or a question answered. They’ll share their secrets of Aspen. And will make sure you’re incredibly well fed.
It’s always nice to recognize a few friendly faces when you walk through the door. Meet some of our Limelighters below.
