Aspen Winter Experience
Experience the Colorado winter in the heart of the Rockies like only a snow loving local can. We offer you what we have a learned to be the best Colorado has to offer after decades of seeking out deep powder stashes and the experiences that go with them throughout the state.
Fire up the aircraft! Experience skiing/riding the way it was meant to be, DEEP, untracked and with your closest friends! The day begins with a scenic 40-minute flight from Aspen to Telluride. We provide six runs of guided heli-skiing (avg: 10,000 – 14,000’ vertical of skiing per day), lunch, snacks, drinks, apres ski, sunscreen, an avalanche beacon, avalanche airbag pack, powder skis (sorry, we do not have snowboards) and ski poles. We will have you back in Aspen for Apres! Wipe that perma-grin off your face!
Options. options, options…. Ski/ride deep powder every day, a different way! We have all the options covered! With a life time of terrain and the recent advances in super lightweight touring gear let us show you around the Elk Mountains and the numerous DEEP powder stashes! Don’t want to spend all that time climbing? Lift assisted backcountry access is for you! Take the lift up and ski/ride the backcountry down! Rather just rip pow down and laugh with your friends and family on the way up? Cat-skiing is the choice. Don’t worry, leave it up to us to take all the photos of you neck deep in pow!
Dunton Hot Spring Heli-Skiing
Does heli-skiing from 14,000 to 10,000 feet all day followed by soaking in luxurious hot springs sound appealing? Join us in the perfectly restored ghost town of Dunton, Colorado for an unforgettable heli-skiing experience. The helicopter will pick you and your group up from right outside your beautiful log cabin and have you in 200 square miles of pristine skiing terrain within minutes. Lunch from Dunton’s delectable kitchen will have you enjoying the powder all day long.
After taking up to six runs in the high altitude alpine basins of the beautiful San Juan Mountains, return to your own private cabin and soak in the hot springs before your group meets in the saloon for a 5-star dinner made with locally sourced food. Kick back and enjoy the evening while sharing the day’s stories and sampling Dunton’s extensive wine list. Feeling sore from all the skiing and laughter? Not to worry, you can indulge yourself in a complete spa treatment of all natural essential oils and a powerful yet soothing massage. Don’t forget to leave time for a yoga or pilates class.
Time spent heli-skiing at the Dunton Hot Springs is truly a unique experience that you will cherish for a lifetime.
Private Yoga Hot Spring Experience
At some point with all this activity the body will need some pampering and wellness… Start the afternoon, or morning off with a private yoga class (group of 1 still counts) tailored to how the group is feeling, transition into a massage followed by a long soak in the natural hot springs deep in the Crystal Valley surrounded by snow covered peaks. With four pools to choose from, find your spot, settle in and reminisce about recent adventures. Of course, a catered lunch is available.
Cruise up the pass to the historic town of Independence. Once a thriving mining town, now a great place to stop, warm up and enjoy a delicious locally sourced lunch. Jaw-dropping vistas in all directions, and crystal blue waterfalls along the trail there is no shortage of photo opportunities! No experience necessary!
Zip through the Snowmass Wilderness with 8-10 Alaskan Huskies! The dogs are bred to run and that’s what they love to do! Each sled carries two adults and a small child. Sun or snow the dogs are ready to run!

Cross Country/Sleigh Ride Dinner
What better way to experience dinner deep in the Rocky Mountain than by cross country skiing or a sleigh ride to a gourmet four course meal. Work up an appetite by challenging yourself with the ski in or get cozy under warm blankets and let two magnificent draft horses do the work. Cozy up by the fire and enjoy a winter drink in the traditional saloon before the first course begins. Enjoy the superb talents and creativity of chef Chris Keating.
