Region/State: Aspen/Snowmass

Aspen/Snowmass is renowned for its stunning natural beauty and world-class outdoor activities, making it a year-round haven for adventure enthusiasts. In the winter, the area transforms into a skiing paradise, boasting four major mountains—Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass—each offering a unique experience ranging from challenging black diamond runs to beginner-friendly slopes. Beyond skiing and snowboarding, winter visitors can enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling through the picturesque Aspen landscapes. When the snow melts, the region bursts into lush greenery, opening up a plethora of summer activities. Hiking and mountain biking trails traverse through scenic mountain passes and dense wildflower-laden forests. Whitewater rafting on the Roaring Fork River delivers exhilarating rapids, whereas calmer activities like fly fishing and golf offer a more relaxed way to take in the breathtaking surroundings. Through all seasons, Aspen/Snowmass provides an outstanding backdrop for both adrenaline-pumping adventures and serene nature escapes.
