5 Activities to Enjoy in Aspen in the Spring
Spring is still a prime time to enjoy the thrill of winter sports. If you want to hit the slopes and spend a day skiing Colorado’s mountains, you can! Head over to Snowmass Ski Resort and treat yourself to an unforgettable adventure. Just remember to bring sunscreen and Chapstick!
If alpine skiing isn’t your cup of tea, try cross-country instead. This is a great option for travelers who still want to enjoy the outdoors and make the most of the snow. Not only is cross-country skiing an excellent workout, but it also offers the chance to explore trails that are off-the-beaten-path in Aspen’s lush forest. The Aspen Nordic Trail System is the perfect place for beginners to start!
When weather permits, horseback riding can be a fun and unique activity for you and your loved ones to try. Imagine strolling Aspen’s landscape on saddleback, channeling your inner cowboy or cowgirl in the mountains! Maroon Bells Guide and Outfitters offers scenic rides for the entire family. They are also conveniently located just outside of downtown Aspen. If you’re feeling romantic, book a lunch or dinner ride for two with a picnic included.
Hiking and Mountain Biking
Spring in Aspen also welcomes the return of warmer temperatures and lush flora and fauna. If you want to hit the trails after a long winter, now is the time! Our area boasts many wonderful hiking and mountain biking trails that you and your group will love. Whether you are a novice or experienced hiker/biker, you’re in for a memorable adventure.
Another spring activity to consider is shopping. There’s nothing like taking a leisurely stroll downtown and indulging in some retail therapy! Treat yourself to a new outfit, skiing accessories, or gear for your outdoor adventures.
