The risk of luxury

The Sky Hotel, one of the hipper places to stay in Aspen, is looking for a few adventuresome (and wealthy) guests. The hotel offers several lodging packages, but its most over-the-top one features: a one-bedroom suite, valet parking, two three-day lift tickets, breakfast buffet each day, champagne in room on arrival, a four-course dinner at Pinon's, two Kimpton signature bathrobes, complimentary use of a Cadillac SRX, a nightcap each night, and with all that luxury, a little risk - a day of skiing with extreme skier Chris Davenport, skiing Highlands Bowl (at right) with the Marolt brothers as they train for Mt. Everest, or ice climbing with Aron Ralson and Aspen Expeditions.

That's the part that's interesting - to really enjoy this package ($1,999.75 per day with a minimum four-night stay), you'd better be a darn good skier or boarder.
