Spring in Aspen means snowmelt is in full swing, lending a lovely green awakening to our beautiful mountain landscape. Though the melting and run off is great for the flora and fauna, it can make for some muddy trail conditions during the months of May and June. With careful planning, there are plenty of options to get out and enjoy hiking and biking during this time while avoiding still-sticky trails. Sun-exposed trails and dry roads will allow you to enjoy the burn of a good climb on foot or a bike.
Most everything in the town of Aspen is slow and mellow in the off-season. The two months between closing weekend of the mountain and the kick off of summer’s festivals is a joy for locals and vacationers alike; it’s a treasured time to enjoy uncrowded restaurants and a leisurely vibe about town. Despite the mellow scene about town, the music is alive and kicking this off-season, with multiple shows from top talents coming to town.
Walk around Aspen and you are bound to see a lot of fur….dog fur that is! Aspen has long been known as a community that loves its four-legged
friends, and dogs love the snow, trails and attention that are abundant in Aspen.
Just a quick jaunt west of town, and a quick ride on the Four Mountain Connector Bus
are two of the four reasons Aspen is such a perfect destination for whatever level ski day you’re up for.
