Thanksgiving in Aspen: More Than Just Turkey!
You’ll have more than just a turkey dinner to be thankful for if you decide to spend Thanksgiving weekend in Aspen. There is of course something very appealing in its own right about spending Thanksgiving in the mountains of Aspen. But Thanksgiving is also the official start to the 2010/2011 ski season, which is set to be one of the longest ski seasons ever in Aspen (due to a late Easter). In addition to the buzz in the air that inevitably accompanies opening day, visitors can look forward to the 2010 Aspen Winternational Audi FIS Women’s World Cup. This exiting two day event brings the fastest women ski racers in the world to Aspen to compete in giant slalom (Saturday, 11/27) and slalom (Sunday, 11/28) ski races. There will be grandstands set up at the bottom of the 1A side of the mountain for optimum viewing. These grandstands are accessible to all (you do not need to ski to get there)and transportation is provided for those who may need assitance. Thanksgiving weekend is also the official kick-off of the season-long Bud Light Hi-Fi concert series. This year’s talent has yet to be announced, but if years past are any indication, guests will not be disappointed. What we can tell you for sure at this point is that the concert will take place on the evening of Saturday, 11/27 from 6:30-8 in the upper Gondola Plaza. Last but not least, back by popular demand is the Bud Light sponsored “Dine around Aspen,” during which many of the best restaurants in Aspen will be offering great Prix Fixe menus. Be sure to look over the link provided at the bottom of the page because some restaurants will not be participating on the night of Thanksgiving. The Innsbruck is the perfect place to enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend in Aspen as all of our condos have luxury kitchens perfect for preparing your feast and cozy living rooms complete with a fireplace that just beg you to partake in that beloved after dinner nap!
