Local Guide

Worth getting out of bed for

  • Few seats in Aspen are as coveted as those on The Little Nell Powder Cat. Reserve yours and you’ll have a powder day to yourself (well, with up to 11 others) on the backside of Aspen Mountain. Each tour averages 10-12 untracked runs on a blank canvas of intermediate to expert terrain, followed by an intimate late lunch at a wood stove-heated cabin in the heart of the Elk Mountains. The cabin comes complete with a complimentary chair massage therapist who will relax your muscles after your exhilarating backcountry workout. Lunch offerings are perfectly paired with wines from around the world, hand selected by The Little Nell's team of sommeliers. Your knee-deep hosts for the day are Little Nell staff from our executive team or ski concierges.
