Welcome to the forum. That's not a lot of time to do a trip from Denver to Aspen and back. If that is your intention here's what I would recommend.

Friday evening - Arrive Denver; drive to west side of Denver, area around Golden; find hotel along I-70 or US6 in Lakewood. This will put you into a good position for drive in the morning.

Saturday - Drive west on I-70 to Copper Mountain; take SR91 south to Leadville then US82 into Aspen over Independence Pass. This will be a four hour drive plus your stops.

Sunday - Enjoy Aspen

Monday - Do the reverse route back to Denver. Allow five to six hours so leave in the morning.

My recommendation is to stay right in Aspen. Little Nell, St. Regis and Jerome are top hotels. Limelight is also excellent option. There are many others but those are some of our favorites.

This plan will give you one full day in Aspen. You'll find plenty to do to fill the day.

Have fun.
