Aspen Gay Ski Week featured hotel
This charming, family-owned lodge offers a variety of pet-friendly accommodations designed to make your Aspen visit perfect.
From the blog of The Limelight Hotel:
If you’re a “Gay Ski Week Virgin,” make sure to check out the Hospitality Suite at the Limelight Hotel. It’s open daily and can give you the details you need to maximize your experience in Aspen. It’s also the go-to spot to pick up tickets to various parties and private events. Even without tickets, just walk in the Limelight’s lobby any given night during the week and you’ll immediately see a throng of very attractive revellers partaking in apres-ski cocktails and celebrating a great day on the slopes. The apres ski parties are hosted by LOGO TV and start at 3pm.

At the Limelight, we don’t hold our noses in the air. We’d rather put our energy into getting the important stuff right. Comfort all the way — from the Lounge, to the kitchen, to the rooms, to the concierge desk — with a little sprinkling of nice-and-easy on top. By all means, treat us like the old friends we’ll soon become. Oh, and don’t be surprised if we remember your first name, spouse’s birthday and favorite run the first time you return.

For a quick workout without leaving the hotel, plan to visit our oh-so-convenient Fitness Room.

MyGayGetaway.com EXTRA Notes. This is one of our favorite hotels. Here is some more information about the hotel we love....
Join the hotel every Wednesday during summer (and a few spring/fall dates) for Rosé Wednesdays. This is when they celebrate rosé like it was going out of style. Thankfully it’s not, but you still get to enjoy some very nice rosé, brut rosé and rosé sangria for just $6.50 a glass. Take it to the next level with any pizza and bottle of rosé for $30.
Whiskey drinkers, allow the Limelight to add a little extra warmth to your winter with the best-of-the-best Colorado bourbons. Head to the Lounge for $14 flights of Stranahan's Whiskey, Woody Creek Rye Whiskey, Breckenridge Bourbon and Leopold Brothers Small Batch Whiskey.
Bike & Beer Series
Follow Team Limelight members on rides up, down and around Aspen, followed by local beer happy hours in the Lounge. Possible rides include “chasing the snow” up Independence Pass, and making the steep climb up to the iconic Maroon Bells. This series takes place on select Sunday afternoons, June 7 through October 4.
Live Local Music
Local bands love playing the Lounge. Every Thursday through Monday, meet them for après and let the musicians take it from there. They even keep the amps plugged in late on occasion so the party can continue well into the night.
Although they are a few time zones from Spain, that doesn’t stop them from celebrating one of the greatest summertime drinks ever created. Throughout the warmer months, they offer generous flights of white, rosé and red Sangria in the Lounge. Come during their nightly Après for a truly sweet deal. Olé!
Oh yeah, that Breakfast that you can indulge in.....
We at MyGayGetaway.com could have 3 breakfasts a day here. Bring your bed head down to the included community breakfast in the Lounge. It’s anything but your average continental breakfast. From 7 until 10 am every day, you’ll find staples like pastries, yogurt, granola, fruit, bagels, pancakes, coffee, juice and tea, as well as a rotating selection of steel cut oatmeal, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, french toast, chorizo, patty sausage and veggie frittatas. Wherever you’re headed, you’ll be fueled up and ready to go.
