Adventure for Our Guests
If you are looking to lie around on vacation, you should probably book a room at the beach. The Limelight is an ideal base camp for those seeking an adventure-filled summer.
Hike Aspen to Crested Butte
The Limelight is pleased to offer our in-house hikers and aspiring mountaineers a unique opportunity to hike to Crested Butte, Colorado, with several options for your return trip back to Aspen. With this package, we send our adventurous guests on the 6-hour, 11-mile trek through the White River National Forest with a map, a spot-satellite GPS Messenger kit, and an assortment of organic and local snacks. A private Limelight shuttle will escort you to the trailhead and send you into nature's most breathtaking mountain vistas. Rely on your GPS Messenger kit to track progress and in the event of an emergency, send distress signals, as your cell phone won't be reliable in the wilderness. Upon arrival in Crested Butte, another private shuttle will whisk you off to the newly remodeled and much beloved Nordic Inn. Enjoy 2 nights in Crested Butte before returning to Aspen via helicopter, plane, or ground transportation.
For more information, please call 970-925-3025.
