Sterling McDavid may be a Texan turned New Yorker (which is potentially one of the most fun combos in my personal opinion), but she's also a life long lover of everyone's favorite winter getaway du jour, Aspen. The Co-Founder & CEO of Burnett New York, a luxury fashion company that's all about women's empowerment (and seriously beautiful garments),  Sterling has been hitting Colorado’s iconic ski town for as long as she can remember. She even got married there!

"My dad used to own the airport and has been going out there since the '60s - there was only 1 chairlift at the time! My favorite thing about Aspen is that it is uniquely the perfect combination of vibrant energy, fresh air and a chic scene. There are no words to explain the feeling I get each time I arrive there - there is simply no place on Earth like it!"

Whether you're new to the slopes or are a return ski bunny looking for something new, no more chic a guide could there be to navigating the Aspen scene than Sterling's! Click through for her top picks - from restaurants and bars to dog sledding and shopping.
