Family NYC and ski

Mike & Donna's verdict:

For the ultimate family winter treat, combine New York City with America’s premier ski destination. Do your Christmas shopping in Manhattan – or grab some bargains in the January sales – then head west to hit the slopes of celebrity-studded Aspen, Colorado, where you’ll stay at the gorgeous ski-in, ski-out Little Nell.

Scott Dunn says

For a luxury winter holiday with the best of both worlds, take your family to New York City for a blast of the Big Apple before heading off for a week on the slopes in glamorous Aspen on our City & Ski Adventure.

Three nights in New York is the perfect amount of time to soak up all the city has to offer. Base yourselves at The Setai Fifth Avenue, an uber-stylish gem in the heart of Manhattan, just two blocks from the Empire State Building.

Then it’s time to fly to the Colorado Rockies and hit the slopes – we’ve picked Aspen as one of North America’s most atmospheric, sophisticated and foodie-friendly resorts. Ski the vast Aspen Snowmass area (‘Aspen Ambassadors’ are on hand for free guiding if desired) and you can join a guide on a snow-shoe excursion.

Stay at the incomparable Little Nell. This is not only Aspen’s only ski-in, ski-out hotel, it’s also one of the most indulgent, with stunning mountain-view rooms and superb five star-plus service, including a Ski Concierge to fix everything from boot warming to ski waxing.

The food at Little Nell is superb – with a fine-dining restaurant and more casual options. Aspen’s many bars and restaurants (and tempting shops) are all on your doorstep too.
