Anyone go to Aspen for their honeymoon?

I fell in love with the St. Regis in Aspen.
My fiance skis and snowboards but I haven't before (willing to learn).

Any recommendations of things to do besides the spa at the hotel.

Thanks!

They can heat up your boots for you, or maybe that was at the Ritz. Well I've never had a bad St. Regis experience.
I'm with you, I'm not a big ski bum but my FI and his family have hit nearly every slope out there, they are nuts. In my opinion there is always shopping! My favorite - Gorsuch ;)

There's always the J-Bar hehe
And if it were me, I love to play polo so I would head out there for that!

Why don't you join ski school? My FI's family is always trying to sign me up and they say its really fun but I haven't done it yet. You guys can attend ski school together!

Thanks for the suggestions! I think that may be where we're going. As long as I have the spa and the fireplace, I should be ok.

I really want to do the horse drawn carriage to the Pine Cook House or whatever it's called...

I used to go there all the time when I was little. We used to spend summers in Snowmass and then a winter trip to Aspen. It's so cute and romantic. Sadly, I was really young, so don't have adult recommendations.

We went to Aspen for our honeymoon, and both my (now) husband and I had spent time there before for the summer music festival. When you feel like getting out, you really should go to Takah Sushi and order the Atomic Shrimp appetizer. Really, really, really amazingly yummy! Also, make sure to head over to the Paradise Bakery for dessert (great ice cream). We practically ate our way through town - so many good restaurants, so little time! When you're full, there's a great bookstore called Explore Booksellers. Did I mention they also have a cafe? :)
