Sky Hotel (Aspen, Colo.)

Aspen might as well be Manhattan on New Year’s Eve. It’s all about exclusive parties and beautiful people, but with the powerful backdrop of some of Colorado’s most majestic mountains. Do the night right. Grab a VIP ticket (which includes a full dinner) to the annual party at posh Sky Hotel, cozy up to a private table, nosh on some tasty snack from a buffet and sip on a few dirty martinis from the open bar at 39 Degrees, the trendy lounge at Sky. This, of course, is just home base. The bash covers two floors (a DJ on each) and is the best party in Aspen, which is saying quite a bit. GA includes all of the above, minus the private table. But who wants to go crazy in Aspen without a little exclusivity? $300 ($500 for VIP), 970-925-6760.
