It may be a skier’s delight come December, but Aspen has plenty to offer in the fall, too, from hiking to horseback riding. Make your base at the Limelight Lodge, a 126-room hotel at the foot of Aspen Mountain. Take advantage of free loaner bikes, a generous breakfast spread, and not one but two rooftop lounges. For stays from September 5 through November 30, guests can get 20 percent off stays of two or three nights and 25 percent off stays of four or more nights.
THE VALUE: Rates start at $130/night.
THE CATCH: Blackout dates include September 15-17, 22-24, and 29-30.
