Let it Snow

Suffering from Alpine apathy? This year we’re planning on skiing stateside. Aspen might seem like a long way to go for your snow, but it didn’t become one of the world’s most famous ski resorts for nothing. Equally appealing to advanced skiers, absolute beginners, families, couples and singles, here you really can have everything. Small wonder it has become synonymous with the jet set and renowned for being home to some of the most luxurious ski hotels in the world. And the best known of these, The Little Nell – Aspen’s only five-star, five-diamond hotel – is better than ever this season, following a stunning makeover earlier in the year. “The Little Nell’s new design recalls in texture, tone and attitude, Aspen’s soul and its distinctiveness as a silver mining town,” says Alexandra Champalimaud, founder and president of Champalimaud Design, who are responsible for the gorgeous new look. You can expect light and welcoming spaces, superior craftsmanship and elegant styling. See you on the slopes. thelittlenell.com
