Heli-Ski the Rockies with the St. Regis Aspen Resort
From now until April 20, the St. Regis Aspen Resort is offering guests a travel package that entails a four-night stay at the resort highlighted by a day of heli-skiing fresh powder in the Colorado Rockies. Since the 1960s, heli-skiing has offered adventure seekers easy access to nature’s most remote summits and pristine slopes. For this adventure, which is led by the pros at Telluride Helitrax—one of Colorado’s leading companies for helicopter skiing and snowboarding—participants will begin the day with a 40-minute scenic flight to Telluride. From there, a professional ski guide will chaperone them to a select drop-off site (at or above 13,000 feet) to enjoy six runs in the Rockies’ San Juan Mountains, with lunch and refreshments provided.
The package also features two days of skiing at Aspen/Snowmass. Additional amenities include a daily $50 food-and-beverage credit good at the resort’s new Trecento Quindici Decano restaurant or the Shadow Mountain Lounge, along with entry to the hotel’s outdoor heated pool and fitness center. Reservations for the Heli-Skiing Package, priced at $4,999 for double occupancy, must be made at least 14 days in advance. (970.920.3300, www.stregisaspen.com)
