 2.

 Smuggler150x150

Smuggler Mountain Observation Deck: Smuggler is affectionately called "Aspen's Highway", but with a spectacular vista of Aspen Mountain rising up out of town, who can blame the dedicated hikers that make their way up each day. (Summer & Winter)

Hyman Avenue Bear: We don't recommend having a close encounter with a real Black Bear, but there's no harm in snapping a picture with the "nail bear" on the Hyman Avenue Mall. (Summer & Winter)

 Weather150x150

Weather: If the timing is right your friends will be blown away by a photo of snow in June, or sunglasses & a t-shirt under your ski jacket in March. The old saying goes "If you don't like the weather in Colorado, wait 5 minutes or drive 5 miles" so you will be treated to photo worthy weather no matter what the time of year. (Year Round)

Events: The special events in Aspen are world-renowned. Join us for one of them and watch the likes stack up on your Facebook page when your friends see you on the half-pipe wall of the X Games as Shawn White soars overhead, or dressed in your summer best in front of the Grand Tasting tent at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen.  (Year Round)
