Aspen

At Klug Properties, we firmly believe that there’s nowhere else in the world we’d rather live than Aspen. And we’re not alone. One vacation to Silver City more often than not turns visitors into residents. While Aspen might be renowned internationally as the ultimate mountain resort destination, it is the conscientious and passionate community of full-time locals and part-time residents, cultural and culinary activities, and easy access to the spectacular natural alpine environment that truly sets it apart. The legacy of our history, steeped in mining activity and alpine sporting tradition, is carried on by passionate outdoorsman today, who have set a modern standard for sustainability and conservation.

Tucked into the Elk Mountains and Sawatch Range of the High Rockies on the Western Slope of Colorado, Aspen is notorious for its thriving seasonal scene for good reason. Thanks to Chicago industrialist Walter Paepcke - who discovered a sleepy, post-Colorado Silver Boom city in the 1940’s - and his wife Elizabeth, a plan was developed to reinvent the area as a utopia. Their ambitious vision was achieved soon after and Aspen has since morphed into an arts and cultural epicenter of the world.

As the globe becomes an ever-crowded place, there are far too few communities like Aspen where you can still find an incomparable ski town soul and one that continues to honor its founding pillars of inspiring a renewal of the mind, body and spirit.

Stemming from the Paepcke’s creation of the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies and Aspen Institute, a year-round calendar offers endless outdoor and intellectual educational opportunities. Every summer, the Institute plays host to global leaders at the Aspen Ideas Festival and to world-class musicians at the Aspen Music Festival. Art lovers can take advantage of high-brow happenings at the Aspen Art Museum, gallery receptions and at the annual Art Aspen Fair and Downtown Aspen Art Festival. Fashionistas flock here to shop along the Cooper and Hyman pedestrian malls lined with luxury retailers like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and Prada to independently-owned favorites from Kemo Sabe and Pitkin County Dry Goods to Explore Booksellers and Gorsuch. As the longtime locale for the famed Food & Wine Classic, Aspen’s culinary scene rivals most major metropolitan areas. Whether you dive into dishes at famed outposts like Matsuhisa, Meat & Cheese, Cache Cache, Steakhouse 316, White House Tavern, Piñons, Jimmy’s or the J-Bar, every meal at altitude is one to remember.

But it’s Aspen’s beautiful backyard that’s the biggest draw. Surrounded by The Power of Four mountains (Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and neighboring Snowmass) with the Roaring Fork River running right through it, choose your own adventure from hiking, biking, fishing, paddling and climbing in the summer to snowboarding, x-country skiing, alpine skiing and easy backcountry access in the winter. The “secret seasons” of spring and fall are just as full of beauty, when town is left for locals to enjoy the quietest months. Aspenites also get to call the Maroon Bells, one of the most photographed scenes in North America, their own, which is a gateway to a plethora of trailheads in the White River National Forest.
