For Costner, the West is more than a big-budget, silver-screen fantasy – it's a place he's called home for 20 years. "It's my heaven on earth," says Costner. Between shoots and tours you'll find him fishing on his 165-acre ranch, just five minutes outside town. "My children like to fish and I like to be with them," says Costner. "I like the solitude of it." Located beneath four towering mountains – Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, and Snowmass – Aspen is a laid-back mountain idyll that serves as a verdant outdoor playground by summer and renowned wonderland in winter. Visitors from the coasts can explore the Colorado, Frying Pan, and Roaring Fork Rivers, which are fish-packed and within close proximately to the quaint 12 hotels downtown.
