Aspen may be identified by its renowned skiing and snowboarding, but when the snow melts and the leaves return, a different Aspen emerges, beckoning outdoor adventurists, artists, musicians and writers to an idyllic mountain town with roots as deep as the mountains are high.
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.
We've recently updated our spring/summer/fall 2013 Media Kit with information about Aspen's myriad events, outdoor pursuits, new attractions, activities, and more.
We look forward to telling you about our unique mountain town, discussing story ideas, providing more detailed information, helping arrange a visit, or just giving you a local's perspective on living in America's finest small town.
We are constantly compiling new information about Aspen, and we will be updating these releases regularly. Please contact us if you are working on a story or would like to arrange a visit.
