Aspen Family Vacation

A family ski vacation in Aspen, Colorado will create memories of a lifetime for you and your children. The Molly Gibson Lodge, a family friendly lodge in the heart of the Town of Aspen is ready to assist you with your winter family adventure. Kids and adults will have a ball playing in the snow, skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, making a snowman or catching snowflakes on your hands. Don't forget to bring the family pet, as the Molly Gibson Lodge is Pet Friendly.

Kids of all ages can participate in Aspen Ski School. Ages 2 - 17 can take group lessons and private lessons. Skiing starts at age 2, snowboarding 6 to 7 are good ages to start. Why not learn how to do both snowsports at an early age, you'll never regret it. Childcare for those who aren't up to skiing yet is available through Ski School too, just be sure to make a reservation! For a day off the slopes, check out Teddy Bear Story Hour during the Holidays or The Aspen Art Museum throughout the year for culture. For the older kids, plan a trip to Aspen during the X-Games in January to see the top skiers, snowboarders and snowmobilers. Every Friday from December 19 - April 3, 2015, Ullr Nights takes place on Snowmass Mountain. Ullr Nights honors the Norse God of Snow with events like ice skating, snow shoeing, bonfire with s'mores and hot chocolate, tubing and fire dancers.
