Even the most diehard downhiller needs a day off. And when that day comes, there is no better way to get the fresh air you crave than on cross-country skis. With miles and miles of public trails, as well as acres of backcountry and a XC ski touring area just up Castle Creek Road, Aspen has become known as a Nordic skiers nirvana. So put on the skinny skis and explore the Aspen area in a whole new way this winter! And an added bonus is the Aspen Golf Course turns into a cross-country track in the winter - make some rounds, this time on two skis!
