( CNN) Private planes, $40 million mansions, and streets lined with boutique clothes storages — welcome to Aspen, a ski resort tucked away in the Rocky mountains that’s long been a playground for celebrities.

No surprise, then, that the likes of Lance Armstrong, Elle Macpherson, Heidi Klum and Seal have all been known to grace the town’s ski slopes over the years.

Kevin Costner married Christine Baumgartner at his ranch in Aspen, illustrious golfer Jack Nicklaus has a house there, and John Denver lived in the town until his death.
