If a bachelorette party by the beach or in a big city just isn't your thing, don't feel pressured to plan a party that isn't distinctly you. For some brides-to-be, a snowy getaway to their favorite mountain is the perfect way to celebrate your last days a single woman. If you're thinking about gathering your girls for a skiing and snowboarding celebration, you need to put Aspen, Colorado, on your short list. You've likely already heard of this celebrity-packed mountain retreat, but what you may not know is that there's really something for everyone here. To prove it, our friends at the Venue Report rounded up their favorite bachelorette-worthy hotels in the area, and you won't be disappointed by what they found.
Of the seven spots they recommend, you'll have a hard time choosing which to book. Looking for all-out luxury? There's a five-star resort (with all the bells and whistles) that's calling your name. Looking for a stay that will let you take advantage of the area's many powder-covered mountains? Several ski-on/ski-off properties made the list. Not wild about winter sports? You'll be happy to know there are spas aplenty, so you can enjoy après ski activities all day long. Best of all, Aspen isn't just a winter destination. Hiking and rafting are fun summertime activities, but poolside lounging and local shopping are all on order, too.
No matter how you're celebrate your last weekend as a single woman, there's a way to do so in Aspen. Before your start planning your bachelorette weekend in Colorado, check out these hotel picks.

This recently renovated hotel is just four minutes from Aspen Mountain, but you'll feel like you're right there thanks to the epic views of the beautiful Rockies. After a day on the mountain, you and your bachelorette crew will enjoy unwinding in your chic room, especially if you book the Presidential Suite. And if some in your party aren't fans of winter spots, don't worry: Non-skiers can hit the pool, spa, or take advantage of the resort's other recreational activities by day.

The Little Nell
If you want your bachelorette party to be awash with amenities, you need to plan a weekend at the Little Nell, Aspen's only five-star, five-diamond property. The ski-in/ski-out resort has two on-site restaurants, around-the-clock room service, and an outdoor pool worthy of an Instagram. You and your girls can unwind with après ski drinks at the bar, all while taking in the spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains and the Maroon Bells behind you.

The St. Regis Aspen
Adventure and granduer are not mutally exclusive, especially when you're calling this beautiful hotel home during your bachelorette party. Skiing and snowboarding are obviously on order, but your group should also book a day at the spa (saving time for a dip in the outdoor pool). Planning a summertime bachelorette getaway? Hiking and rafting are just some of the outdoor options during the warmer months.

It's possible to plan a green getaway in the middle of this white wonderland. Viceroy Snowmass was built with an eco-conscious approach, so each of the property's 173 rooms is LEED-certified. After a day on the mountain, head to Snowmass Village for a night on the town, then recuperate by the pool or at the spa.

If the mountain isn't what's calling you to Aspen, Hotel Durant is the spot for your bachelorette weekend. Although it's close enough to the Silver Queen Gondola should anyone want to visit Aspen Mountain, what really sets this unique lodge apart is how close it is to the best restaurants, shops, art galleries, and museums in the area.
