Things to Do in Aspen

Some of the best-known activities in Aspen, of course, revolve around its proximity to the Rocky Mountains, which offers myriad winter pastimes. Aspen is revered by many of the world's top skiers as well as families who ski at a range of skill levels. There are multiple ski-in/ski-out lodges from which to choose at the area's ski areas, including Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass, so that hopping on a ski lift and getting in the first run of the day is quite convenient.

However, those in the know realize it's just as fun to be here any time of the year, with many outdoor things to do in Aspen that celebrate its picturesque natural setting. Warmer weather brings with it amazing wildflowers in Aspen's alpine meadows, and there's wonderful mountain biking and hiking to discover. In the fall, the brilliant colors of the changing leaves on trees reflect a painter's palette. Plus, there's whitewater rafting and rock climbing to enjoy during the warmer months.

But the many activities in Aspen are not limited to active outdoor pursuits. The annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen is a major draw for gourmands and oenophiles alike, featuring the best chefs and vintners in the world in an approachable setting. And Aspen is also a shopper's paradise, as you can find everything from exclusive designer boutiques to the latest high-performance ski gear, plus Western art and antiques.
