As we turn the corner into the month of December, Aspen becomes one of the most coveted spots for private travelers to jet to. Although Aspen is known for its slopes (and rightfully so), there is plenty more to entertain a crowd whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or a fun-filled family weekend.
12 days of Aspen
From December 20-31, downtown Aspen comes to life to celebrate the Christmas season. Events vary throughout the 12 day celebration, but most nights always offer free food and fun for the whole family to enjoy. Holiday gift wrapping, family skating and multiple showings from the Aspen film academy are among some of the activities to keep you entertained.
“Our Cup Runneth Over” is the official catch phrase for the 2017 WinterSkol festival honoring the return of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup to Aspen in March, which will make for quite a celebration. Although the official schedule won’t be released for a couple weeks, expect the Fat Cycle challenge to be the highlight of a weekend filled with art, fireworks and much more.
Elk Camp on Snowmass turns into the place to be on Friday nights in Aspen. Each Friday in the Winter season, take a scenic Gondola ride to the top of Elk Camp where tubing, snowbiking and more are available while you enjoy live music and freshly prepared food.
Aspen Powder Tours
There is fresh powder all over Aspen, but the finest powder can only be reached by snowcat. Be the first to experience the untracked runs on the backside of the Aspen mountains with over 10,000 feet of ungroomed trails available.
Multiple mountains throughout the Aspen area offer the famous romantic evenings known as Snowcat dinners. With slopeside pickup available, enjoy a scenic ride up the mountain with your special someone, followed by a four course meal prepared by an executive chef.
Where to Stay
Mountain Top Yoga
Before you put on your ski boots, start your morning off with a long yoga session atop the scenic Aspen mountains. For only $5 per person, yoga lovers of all levels are invited to take a yoga class designed to get the body ready for a day on the slopes.
