When you choose your hotel, skip Aspen for accommodations in nearby Snowmass Village instead.
About 20 minutes outside of Aspen is Snowmass Village. Since Snowmass Village is much larger than Aspen, you’re likely to find more affordable lodging options.
For example, I booked a two-night stay at the Stonebridge Inn via Airbnb. The two nights cost $388. The room could’ve slept four people, which would’ve been $50 per person per night.
According to Champion Travel, most Snowmass Village hotels range from $88 to $265 per night compared to Aspen hotels, which range from $97 to $417 per night. When it comes to vacation rentals, Snowmass has 373 rental properties listed on Trip Advisor, which is 150 more than Aspen.
Overall, a solo traveler on a seven-day trip will save about $300 if they visit Snowmass Village instead of Aspen, Champion Travel states.
And if you’re looking for ski-in and ski-out accommodations, Snowmass is likely a better option. According to Afar, 95% of all tourist accommodations there are ski-in and ski-out. In Aspen, I stayed at the only ski-in and ski-out hotel, The Little Nell, which cost me $848 a night during my off-season trip.
