Aspen for Thanksgiving?

Hey everyone,

Will be in Aspen, CO over the Thanksgiving holiday, and am looking for any and all recommendations.

What's open? What's worth it? Any info on what some of the local hotels/ resorts are offering, and of course, which are worthy?

Big thanks in advance!

  1. I find it strange the lack of Aspen suggestions, in general, on Chowhound. You'd definitely think otherwise.

      The Hotel Jerome is doing a dynamite T-giving buffet. See and be sure to click on the "Ski Restaurant Restaurant Details."

        Checking the Dallas media to find out what's happening in Aspen just about says it all.

          BlueOx - What all does it say? That I live in Colorado, ski and eat in Colorado, and wrote the story for the Dallas Morning-News? I (modestly) just thought it was as good a roundup as any, and other Chowhounds might be coming to Colorado for the long weekend and might be looking for recommendations in other resorts too. What everyone needs to do now is a snow dance!

            I don't want to speak for BlueOx, but I sense the comment was about the large number of Texans in places like Aspen, not you personally.

              JTC, You got it. Its more a comment about how Aspen is out of reach for most Coloradans. The places down the Roaring Fork Valley feel a lot more local and true West.

              As far as snow, we aren't in any hurry up here, I rode my bike down Glenwood Canyon this week. Then stopped for a really good lunch at Juicy Lucy's. And the locals prices are staying in place in Vail (50% off wines at Larkspur) until it snows. Right now a couple of runs (white ribbons of death) are all thats on the ground in the High Country.
