If you fancy yourself more Mario Andretti than Bode Miller, test your winter driving skills behind the wheel of Aspen Ice Karting’s performance machines.

Just 25 minutes outside Aspen, this unique winter experience is the ultimate adrenaline-pumping adventure.
Food & Drink
Slope & Hatch
Across from the river in downtown Glenwood, Slope & Hatch is a little-known secret that is producing some of the most imaginative and delicious tacos in the Valley. Menu items like the Cubano (a taco take on a pressed Cuban sandwich), or the Thai Veggie Stir Fry (Asian flavors wrapped up in a tortilla) make this hidden gem a must-stop. Did we mention they also offer a full menu of gourmet dogs?

Tucked away beneath a historic facade next to the Hotel Jerome is the quiet front door that leads to Bad Harriet, a stylish speakeasy that’s perfect to slide into for a private cocktail or an evening escape. The ambiance is what we would expect if Gatsby came out West. Reservations are recommended, but don’t be afraid to visit without one. This just may be your new favorite watering hole.
