5 Reasons Why We Are Looking Forward To Fall

5 Reasons Why We Are Looking Forward To Fall 


Saying goodbye to an Aspen summer isn’t so bad knowing the fall season is approaching. Autumn gold with rust colored tones, and sunny blue skies accompanied by crisp mountain air are a few reasons why fall in Aspen is so desirable. Check out 5 more reasons why we are looking forward to fall in Aspen 2016:


  1. 38th Annual Aspen Filmfest: Taking place September 21-25, the 2016 Aspen Filmfest is an intimate affair thatFall.Downtown.WalkingMall.RedMtnProductions.jpeg allows participants to view new releases, sneak previews, surprise films and favorites from the festival circuit. A noncompetitive festival, join us in viewing fall previews, acclaimed independent films from the international festival circuit, and other narrative and documentary features.


  1. Mac and Cheese Fest: The annual Mac and Cheese Fest is back in Aspen this fall. On September 10th from 2-5 pm, grab your own spoon and try Aspen’s best mac and cheese creations for free! People’s Choice Award, Chef’s Choice Award, Judge’s Choice Award, Kid’s Choice Award and Best Theme Award are the categories YOU have the opportunity to vote for.


  1. Fall Hiking & Biking: With the cooler temperatures and an absence of crowds due to the off-season, hiking through Aspen’s mountains is a must do this fall. Hunter Creek Trail, Ute Trail, Maroon Lake Scenic Trail are a few hikes great for adventure seekers looking to leaf-peep as well. The Rio Grande Trail provides a great casual fall bike ride, or Independence Pass for a challenging but gorgeous fall ride.


  1. Tough Mudder: The Tough Mudder is back with new obstacles and some of the toughest and most intense terrain. On September 10 & 11, prepare to get sweaty & muddy on this 10-12 mile unforgettable course.
