While Aspen’s summer season has started to rival its winters, many visitors have yet to discover Aspen’s Secret Season – from mid-May through mid-June when spring bursts into summer. The weather is warm, town is lively, and lodging prices are at their most affordable rates starting as low as $80 night.
Outdoor recreation options available during the Secret Season include: whitewater rafting, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, paragliding, road cycling, mountain biking, hiking, fly-fishing, rock climbing, horseback riding and more.
Events going on during the Secret Season include:
- The Ride for the Pass returns to Aspen on May 20. The fundraiser consists of a recreational ride and road bike race up Independence Pass to 12,095 feet. For more information on the event and registration, visit the Independence Pass Foundation’s website.
