Fads for exotic ski resorts come and go but the mountain that skiers keep
going back to, according to ski holiday specialists Travelplan, is Aspen,
Colorado – even our devalued dollar hasn’t stopped the resort topping its
most popular list, a position it has maintained for years in spite of legions of
Aussies storming the slopes in Japan.
Aspen’s enduring popularity may have something to do with the great
atmosphere of its township, cool new hangouts including the Sky Hotel
), access to more than 500 kilometres of ski trails and
a four-mountain pass, not to mention the odd celebrity sighting. But
don’t take our word for it. The Travelplan Ski Expo is on at the Brisbane
Convention and Exhibition Centre, 30 May, 10am to 3pm, with exhibitors
from other US ski resorts, Japan, Canada and more for everything you need
to know before you go for a holiday in the snow. Entry is free but a gold
coin donation to Disabled Wintersport Australia will be welcomed.
