X Games glory comes to Buttermilk at Aspen every year when big names hit the super pipe. Check it out and marvel at the 22 foot side walls. Take a photo in front, at the bottom, to the side, down the middle, behind you, in the distance. Just take a pic.

The Little Nell is the luxe address de jour each winter for those who fancy the high life. Mere mortals can sip on a hot chocolate in the lounge, not just any hot chocolate, a Valhrona hot chocolate with house made marshmallows as light as a cloud. Capture this delicacy on camera.
