Your choice will depend on whether Aspen is one of many destinations or your only destination. There are four Aspen resorts in total (Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, Snowmass and Buttermilk) and all are reasonably close to each other and to the town of Aspen. Each resort and the town of Aspen are served by a convenient city bus. In fact the bus is so convenient that a car may be a liability, as parking at Aspen Highlands and Aspen Mountain is limited and expensive and in the town of Aspen parking is also difficult. If you choose your accommodations appropriately, you will hopefully be able to walk to all of your evening destinations in town.
