Staff report

With the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience and the MotherLode Volleyball Classic highlighting an active upcoming weekend, and an airport that sees a bevy of Gulfstreams land over holiday weekends, results from a recently released survey might not come as a shocker.

Aspen ranked No. 2 among the top Labor Day weekend destinations for wealthy travelers, according to Flextjet, a private jet provider.

Aspen jumped four spots from last year’s survey that placed it at No. 6.

Flexjet ranked the top 10 destinations in this order:
