Aspen - Snowmass

The Roaring Fork Valley is home to the world-famous towns of Aspen, and just down the road, Snowmass Village. The area offers such a wide variety of summer vacation activities that a one week vacation is simply enough time for just a sample.

Big and Unforgetable

With 4,000 acres of summer vacation terrain spread across four mountains, it's big, glamorous, and unforgettable. It is the quintessential mountain town surrounded by nearly half a million acres of breathtaking wilderness. The White River National Forest has hundreds of trails for hiking or biking. Maroon Bells - Snowmass was one of the five original Colorado wilderness areas designated by the 1964 Wilderness Act. With six jagged peaks cresting over 14,000 feet, shimmering alpine lakes, and the hot springs of Conundrum Creek, this is one of Colorado's most popular outdoor areas for hikers, bikers, photographers, fishermen, sightseers, and vacationers.

Things to Do

Ride the Silver Queen Gondola from the heart of Aspen to the 11,212-feet summit of Aspen Mountain. Cooler temperatures and great dining await. Delight in panoramic views of Aspen and the Elk Mountain Range. Hike and photograph wildlife and spectacular scenery. For breathtaking views, ride the Burlingame chairlift and be sure to bring your bike or rent one for the whole family right in town. When biking near Snowmass, we recommend the Elk Camp gondola and chairlift, which runs every day (and longer weekend hours through September). You'll ride down over 3,000-vertical feet of incredible trails. 

Visitors to the area (and locals alike) enjoy biking, hiking, photography, disc golf, paintball, and fishing. Learn how to pan for gold and strike it rich. For an adrenaline rush, try the bungee trampoline. Multiple bungee cords super-boost the trampoline to give a gravity defying ride. Year-round hot air balloon rides will send you to see the area from above. Test your agility on the rock-climbing wall or bring the whole family for a group sing-a-long and storytelling outing. Try kayaking Aspen's slalom course, which is right in the heart of town adjacent to the Aspen Art Museum.

Much of your day could be spend going a for a stroll around the two town centers. Victorian buildings house boutiques, art galleries, bookstores, shops, saloons, and restaurants give you the sense of lazy, relaxing days. Dining ranges from rustic taverns with turn-of-the-century decor to fine dining at five-star restaurants. With over 100 bars, nightclubs, and restaurants, Aspen and Snowmass keep visitors going all day and into night. Lodging choices range from world-class resorts, five-star hotels, bed & breakfasts, inns, motels, cabins, and campgrounds.
