Going to Aspen mid Jan - looking for recommendations..

1) Is there any way to get discounted tickets?

2) Any place to stay "near" the mountain for a cheapish price but not a dump?

I normally just go with a group and don't have to worry about planning but going with a few friends after another trip. It will be 4 of us and prefer two hotel rooms or 2 bedrooms

Aspen, where the beer flows like wine...

1. Not really. Look for the Aspen Classic Pass. Might be your best bet. Otherwise get a multi day pass.

2. Again, Not really. Especially around Aspen. There are a few Motel type places in the town of Aspen that will be a bit less, but it's pricey. Do find a better deal you are going to have to go down valley. Look at Carbondale, Basalt, Glennwood Springs.

I assume the comment means that it's pretty expensive to go to Aspen?

The locations you recommended - looks like 30-40mins away from the mountains? We would need a car to get there?

A$spen is great but yeah it's pricey. One of the best ski party towns anywhere.

There is a bus that runs up and down the valley to the Aspen area resorts. They are free from a certain distance and then there is a small charge I believe if you are at a certain distance from the resorts.

The bus is reliable around there for sure.

Classic Pass is the good deal. Four days for $199 is 'bout as good as it gets. Dig a snow cave on the golf course right across from Buttermilk.........it's right on the bus route.

Classic Pass would be so much better if one could obtain it without having to be there in-person when purchasing. We tourons seem to be SOL.
