Apsen is kind of the Saint Tropez of the mountains. The ski resort has a nice downtown lined with luxury boutiques. There’s four ski fields to accommodate the crowd: Aspen, Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass. The area is so popular that the Maroon Bells in White River National Forest are the most photographed peaks in North America. We get up before sunrise to go witness it ourselves: the Maroon Bells reflecting on Maroon lake really are a beautiful sight.
