Checklist for a 24-hour Excursion to Aspen
__ Drive from Vail to Aspen (should take 2 hours)
But, being a bit of a cautious driver and running into a white-out in Glenwood Canyon, it took 3 hours for me. None the less, I arrived safely.
__ Stay in the most conveniently located hotel in downtown Aspen
For a culinary-obsessed girl, the location of the Molly Gibson Lodge was fabulous - just a mere 2 blocks from restaurant row, walking distance after a champagne split!
