Thanksgiving in Aspen: Where and What to Eat
Happy Thanksgiving from Klug Properties! Whether you are a full-time resident in the Aspen Snowmass area, a regular visitor, or this is your first time in this incredible valley; there are plenty of ways to dine this Thanksgiving holiday. Let us give you some ideas for how to spend your turkey day!
The quintessential Aspen Thanksgiving experience starts with spending opening day on Ajax Mountain with the other skiers and riders who have been eagerly awaiting the lifts spinning since April. After a day on the slopes, cooking a full Thanksgiving meal might seem like a lot. Don’t worry, Ajax Tavern at the base of Ajax Mountain will be offering traditional Thanksgiving favorites including roasted organic turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and all the classic trimmings, complete with pecan pie. Dinner will run from 5-9 pm and starts at $55+ per guest. For this experience, you don’t even have to leave the mountain to get your Thanksgiving fix! Learn more > >
