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.
Say goodbye to ordinary vacations. Aspen will elevate your vacation to defy ordinary, from outdoor adventure to big city cultural events -- we have it all. To learn more go to aspenchamber.org
