Aspen and Snowmass – Not Just For Skiing

What do you think about when you think of Aspen, Colorado?  Probably snow, skiing, and A-list celebrities, right?  Yes, all of that is true but there is so much more to Aspen than most may think. If it’s been a destination that you’ve thought about but wondered whether it was right for you, Aspen undoubtedly has something for everyone.

​Aspen Snowmass is a mountain resort in the central Colorado Rocky Mountains with two towns (Aspen and Snowmass) and four mountains (Snowmass, Aspen Highlands, Aspen Mountains and Buttermilk).  In winter, it is famous for its four perfect mountains that skiers and snowboarders alike love riding, as well as activities such as tubing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating.  By Summer, the snow has melted making way for white water rapids and wildflowers.  Hikers, mountain bikers, rafters, fly-fisherman, golfers and outdoor adventurers of all types flock to Aspen to take in its beauty.

Regardless of season, there are countless festivals and events, everything from music to ballet, food and wine, intellectual and environmental.  Examples include Jazz Aspen Snowmass, ESPN X games, Aspen Filmfest and Aspen Arts Festival, there is always something interesting going on.  Art galleries, culinary delights and live music is abundant throughout the year.

Whether you’d like to sip wine while taking in the panoramic views from a mountain meadow or like to be more active and hike the Maroon Bells, Aspen will be a highlight of your summer or fall vacation.  Perhaps you’d prefer the winter experiences of ice skating while snowflakes tickle your nose or taking a snowshoe tour with a naturalist while learning about local flora and fauna.
