Founded as a mining camp during the Colorado silver boom, Aspen grew from a sleepy mountain town of the early 20th century into arguably the United States' most prestigious ski resort. Long regarded as popular retreat for artists, Hollywood celebrities and titans of industry, there have always been plenty of world-class dining, hotel and shopping options. Although the classics remain top-notch—dinner and drinks at Jimmy’s, Cache Cache’s amazing French-American fare, fireside cocktails at Caribou Club, and Gorsuch for the most luxurious ski apparel around—this winter has seen a host of exciting debuts to add to the must-do list.
