5 of the Best Things to Do in Aspen With Kids
1. Ride the Silver Queen Gondola
We’ll never get sick of riding the Silver Queen Gondola no matter how old we are! The gondola brings you 12,000 feet into the sky for a ride that is fun for all ages. Once you reach the top, you’ll have access to restaurants, lawn games, kids’ activities, and more! They even have live kids shows during the summer season.
2. Go for a Bike Ride or Hike
Depending on the age of your children, a hike or bike ride is one of the best ways to experience the beauty of Aspen. During the spring, summer, and fall, the stunning mountains of Aspen make way for amazing trails of all skill levels. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our concierge team so we can rent bikes for you or give you our tips on the best hiking spots for your family!
3. Ski in the Winter, of Course!
At Snowmass and Buttermilk, there are designated areas that have been designed just for kids! They can ski or snowboard down the mountain with no problem here, and they don’t have to worry about tough terrain or running into experienced skiers that zip quickly down the mountain. If the kiddos haven’t quite learned to ski yet, there are Ski & Snowboard School Programs offered at the Treehouse Kids Adventure Center!
4. The Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center
Like we mentioned above, the Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center is a great resource if your children are under four years of age. This 2,300-square-meter childcare facility located in Snowmass Village has been designed to keep your kids busy! They’ll love all the Colorado-themed playrooms and supervised activities here.
5. Head to the Aspen Recreation Center
The Head to the Aspen Recreation Center hosts year-round, family-friendly activities we know you’ll love. Strap on some skates and teach the kids to ice skate, or give the kids swimming or kayaking lessons in the summer!
