Enjoy A Christmas Carol and Christmas Carols at Wheeler Opera House
It wouldn’t be Christmas without the Charles Dickens Christmas classic. Many movies and TV specials have been inspired by A Christmas Carol, but the magic of live theater really brings the tale to life. This year, Scrooge gets a fresh new look at Wheeler Opera House, where you can also catch The Ten Tenors live on Christmas Day. The Australian opera stars will fill the historic venue with their contemporary takes on classics like “White Christmas” and “Joy to the World”.
Light the Menorah or Take a Carriage Ride with Santa
This year, Hanukkah lasts from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day, so the last week of 2016 will be extra special in Aspen. The St. Regis Resort is a great place for families of all faiths to celebrate. Each night of Hanukkah, Rabbi Mendel Mintz will light the menorah in the lobby while reciting traditional Jewish blessings. All families are welcome to attend for free, and those who are celebrating Christmas can stick around for some extra fun as well. Kids can decorate holiday stockings on Christmas Eve for $30 each at the five-star luxury resort, which also offers $10 carriage rides through Aspen with Santa Claus himself.
Ring in 2017 with Five-Star Dining and Bottomless Champagne
Enjoying New Year’s Eve in Aspen? The fireworks display over Aspen Mountain is visible for free from a variety of resorts and outdoor spots, but The Little Nell has the most exclusive views and experiences this December 31. The five-star, five-diamond hotel is unparalleled, and its unique ski-in, ski-out access isn’t the only reason. Thanks to Executive Chef Matt Zubrod, the world-class Ajax Tavern takes luxury to a new level, and the restaurant has several prix fixe dining options before and during the firework show. After dinner, head to the Dom Perignon Party where bottomless champagne is flowing all night in three different live entertainment spots. Tickets start at $495. After you fly in on your luxurious Las Vegas jet charter, you might want to spring for private butler service during the bash too.
