A FEW OF THE MANY WAYS
To Enjoy Aspen
Downhill skiing and snowboarding at Aspen’s four exceptional mountains is the reason the world comes here to play for several months out of the year. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, make trails on Aspen’s scenic slopes.
Looking for fun things to do in Aspen in the winter? Discover spectacular backcountry terrain including the picturesque Maroon Bells and test your physical fitness on 80 kilometers of pristinely groomed Nordic trails.
Heli-ski from the highest peaks of the San Juan Mountains and feel the rush of a lifetime. Imagine the excitement as you fly to 12,000 vertical feet and drop into fresh, untouched snow. Thrill-seekers delight in single or multiple day trips with Telluride Helitrax which include all the gear you would need including an experienced guide to lead you on your journey.
Discover Aspen’s scenic backcountry on a guided snowshoe tour, led by naturalists from the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies. On the tour, you’ll weave in and out of spruce-fir forests and along a babbling creek while your guide teaches you about the animals that inhabit the Rocky Mountains in winter. Or explore Aspen Mountain on your own, strap on a pair of snowshoes, grab a trail map and set off into the trails.
A once in a lifetime experience. Take a twilight dog sledding excursion through the tranquil, snowy wonderland of Aspen, Colorado. You will enjoy the stillness of the trail and the spectacular alpenglow as you hurtle down the mountain pulled by powerful huskies and guided by an expertly trained musher.
For an adrenaline-filled expedition, experience Aspen’s famed slopes on a mountain bike. Traverse miles of downhill and cross-country trails suited to your ability, some only reachable by gondola or chair lift.
The mountains surrounding Aspen/Snowmass are world-famous for their beauty and sublime hiking. The hikes that the area offers are endless and can be accessed right from town or simply a short drive. Hiking is probably the most accessible way for visitors to get in touch with nature. Whether you choose to go it alone or use a guide, there is literally a hike for every age and ability.
White Water Rafting
After the snow melts, Aspen’s mountain location makes for truly majestic, roaring rivers. Experience the thrill and camaraderie of navigating rapids big and small while taking in stunning natural surroundings.
Cruise tranquil Cabo Bay, stopping at famous Arches, Lovers Beach, and hidden coves perfect for snorkeling. End your day at sea watching the sun set over the Sea of Cortez.
