Bar Menu Secret
Visitors on a budget can enjoy Aspen's culinary offerings by sitting in the bar at nearly every restaurant in town. Patrons can sample some of the food served from the regular menu at a fraction of the price, in a more relaxed setting.
Woody Creek Tavern
Frequented by the late Hunter S. Thompson and a lively local crew, this home-cooked hideaway in Woody Creek Canyon is an eclectic museum of underground Aspen history. The restaurant in a rustic cabin serves up burgers (made with low-fat Colorado limousin beef), fresh tilapia tacos, mean chicken enchiladas, organic salads and vegetarian (organic when possible) soups—all of which go well with the house-specialty drink—fresh-squeezed lime juice margaritas made with 100% blue agave tequila.

Like New Gear
When Olympians like Aspenite Gretchen Bleiler have an extra snowboard, or big mountain skier Chris Davenport upgrades his ski quiver, they unload their nearly-new goods to Replay Sports, which stocks everything from ski and snowboard equipment to hockey gear.

Even the most diehard downhiller needs a day off. And when that day comes, there is no better way to get the fresh air you crave than on cross-country skis. With miles and miles of public trails, as well as acres of backcountry and a XC ski touring area in a ghost town just up Castle Creek Road, Aspen has become known as a Nordic skier’s nirvana. Rentals, lessons and information are available at the Aspen Cross Country Center.
