The Balsam Hill Traveler: Aspen’s Wintry Charm
As one of the world’s premier ski destinations, Aspen continues to provide travelers with a luxurious winter retreat. Surrounded by magnificent snow-capped mountains, lush evergreen forests, and deep tranquil lakes, this Rocky Mountain refuge casts the image of an artist’s portrait coming to life. Those who come to visit Aspen are enamored by its enchanting beauty and its secluded sophisticated nature.
For the first edition of our Christmas trees special, the Balsam Hill Traveler journeys through the breathtaking valleys of Aspen, Colorado. We take a closer look at how the natural charm of this winter sanctuary has come to inspire one of Balsam Hill’s exquisite collections of artificial holiday trees: the Aspen Christmas collection.
A Rocky Mountain Shangri-La
From what began as a simple mining village in the 1800s, Aspen has evolved into one of the most sought-after destinations for the holidays. Its pleasant winter climate and numerous scenic routes have made the city an excellent place for mountain lodges and ski resorts.
Here in this Rocky Mountain retreat, holiday travelers can enjoy a taste of the rustic and also have all the amenities of a world-renowned resort. From a hearty breakfast in a lodge to the finest food and accommodations, you can enjoy the comforts of a luxurious stay in Aspen. You can also spend time by the evening fire while admiring the scenic view of the Maroon Bells and the Maroon Lake.
Winter Holiday Homes
Aspen’s famed lodges are noted for their combination of traditional sophistication and pastoral charm. The classical wooden frames add to the coziness of the space while also providing a smooth contrast to the weathered look of stone walls.
These features, coupled with the warm and ambient lighting from rustic chandeliers, help create a relaxing and intimate atmosphere for which Aspen holiday homes are known.
A Living Artwork
The beauty of Aspen lies in how the town is able to blend well with its picturesque surroundings.
Blessed with acres of woodlands, which include several species of natural holiday trees, such as mountain spruces, aspens, and firs, Aspen still retains its urban vibe without undermining its natural appeal. This is clearly seen during autumn and winter when the town comes alive as the seasons change, and it becomes a winter wonderland.
