The 179-room St. Regis Aspen Resort is the grand dame of this glitzy ski town. Regulars return year after year for the hotel’s hearty breakfast buffet, resourceful concierge service, and Remède Spa. This season the dog-friendly resort will offer you a new way to bond with your pup: skijoring lessons. The sport originated in Scandinavia and combines cross-country skiing and dogsledding. A certified professional dog trainer will assist guests in training their dogs to pull them along on their skis. Guests without pets can skijor with an adopted dog on loan from the Aspen Animal Shelter, and a portion of the proceeds go back to the shelter. From $779.
