We like to make sure you are fully equipped for the week by arming you with all destination specific particulars, including everything from weather and time zones to safety tips and other costs to expect during the week

Customs and Immigration 

Please visit VisaHQ to check what documents and visas you may need to enter the country. Remember to include the countries that you are travelling through to get to your final destination, if applicable.


Expect temperatures between 5°C and 11°C (41°F - 52°F)

Time Zone 

In winter, the Aspen is 7 hour behind of GMT (GMT-7)

Security Deposit

No deposit is required. However when you arrive at the hotel, you will be asked to leave your card details upon check in to cover any damages that arise during the stay.

Personal Safety 

All The Ski Week events are extremely safe. However, as you will find yourselves in unfamiliar surroundings, we recommend that you follow some basic precautions. We’ll lay it out simple for you:

  • Lock your rooms and lockers when you leave and store expensive possessions, travel documents and extra cash in a hidden spot.
  • Stay with other TSW guests and staff whenever possible.
  • Avoid parties and venues not on the itinerary or recommended by TSW
  • Walking home in the cold alone is not a good idea. No one wants to leave the party alone, so buddy up some friends to accompany you home!
  • Wear wear clothing both on and off the mountains. Refer to our Essential Packing List for the full list of everything you will need.

Onsite, The Ski Week has the means to contact authorities when necessary. In the event of an emergency, please find a crew member immediately.


In the United States, power plugs and sockets (outlets) of type A and type B are used. The standard voltage is 120 V at a frequency of 60 Hz. If you are travelling from Europe, Australia etc you will need a power plug travel adapter for sockets type A and B in the United States. 

Local Currency

The local currency is US Dollar. Foreign currency isn’t accepted. There are plenty of ATM machines around the resort. 

Additional Costs

You will have to cover your own food and drinks throughout the week. Expect to pay $20-30 (per person) for lunch, $30-50 (per person)  for dinner and $10 for a beer. Transfers depend on the car rental that you have chosen. Ski/Snowboard rental is available under the ‘Extras’ tab on your booking profile.

Please note that tipping in the US is expected in both restaurants and bars, the minimum expectation is 20%.

Personal Travel Insurance

By booking with us, you are not covered by a personal travel insurance policy. It is your responsibility to have personal travel insurance for the duration of your trip and that it covers activities such as skiing. We highly recommend that all guests purchase such a policy.
