As locals of Aspen, Colorado, we know what each season holds. Every month offers something new and exciting, but we have to admit that Aspen in September is one of our favorites. We refer to this time of year as our magical secret season, and when you stay with Aspen Signature Vacation Rentals during September, you’ll see why.

5 Reasons Why You Need to Visit Aspen in September
1. The Fall Foliage
Our fall foliage doesn’t last long, but it’s one of the most breathtaking sights you will ever see. Thousands of leaves transform from their usual green to brilliant shades of yellow and orange, and the mountain range looks as if it has been painted in gold. The leaves usually start changing during mid-September, and there are plenty of ways to see them. Hike through the mountains, go biking, or even take a leisurely drive.
2. Perfect Weather
September weather isn’t too cold or too hot– it’s just right. Temperatures average in the 60s and are even in the low 70s in the beginning of the month. This weather is perfect for exploring the town; all you need is a light jacket. Hop from restaurant to restaurant, go on a walk, or picnic amongst the picturesque views.
3. Avoid the Crowds
Not many people think to come to Aspen during our secret season, so the town is quieter than it is during the peak months. This means that it is easier to get a reservation at restaurants, and our little piece of mountain paradise remains peaceful. Of course, we love the energy our peak season brings, too!
4. So Many September Events
It’s always fun when an event comes to town! We keep our Upcoming Events page up to date so you always know what’s going on in Aspen and Snowmass. Some of our favorite September events to attend are:
- JAS Labor Day Experience– Enjoy some of the top names in music as they perform at this festival.
- Snowmass Balloon Festival– Watch in awe as the sky fills with hot air balloons!
- Aspen Ruggerfest– Attend or compete in the world’s only all-age, full-contact rugby tournament.
5. Outdoor Activities
The weather paired with the gorgeous landscape make September one of the best times to enjoy the great outdoors in Aspen. You can enjoy nearly every outdoor adventure you can imagine in our area. Hike through the wilderness, go mountain biking, go offroading, and more. Our concierge can recommend and set you up with any outdoor activity you’d like!
