Aspen is a world-class destination with outdoor adventures from skiing to biking, with a flair for the arts and culture, but still maintains enough small-town charm for year round residents to call it home. Aspen truly is a diamond nestled in the rough of the Rocky Mountains that has a knack for bringing city features to you in a way that defines ordinary.
Four world-class mountains entice skiers and snowboarders to Aspen in the winter season. The unique alpine lifestyle is showcased through annual special events and recreational opportunities. Situated on the western slope of the Rockies, bordered by two of Colorado’s most scenic and accessible mountain ranges, with the Roaring Fork River running through the heart of downtown, Aspen in summer is a mecca for world-class athletes who train on local trails and rivers. Summer not only marks another season of outdoor pursuits, but brings a cultural calendar rivaling those of big cities. As a world-class year-round destination, Aspen elevates fall far beyond mere leaf-peeping with a whole host of festivals, cultural events and outdoor activities that make it the perfect choice for a Rocky Mountain getaway.
