It’s a magical time of year with the holidays approaching and the town of Aspen coming alive once again. All of our four ski mountains are up and running, restaurants and shops fully opened and festively decorated, nightlife gaining momentum, and an overall excitement in the air for the new winter season. Aspen is looking beautiful with all the fresh snow, shimmering lights aglow in the downtown core and lots of happy faces after a great day on the slopes.
Aspen is the perfect choice for your vacation any time of year. Besides the skiing or snowboarding that many come to experience, we also have some awesome cross country skiing or snowshoeing in and around the area with spectacular scenery all around. Aspen Skiing Company offers Yoga sessions on the top of Aspen Mountain some mornings to get you stretched out and ready for the day. We have an ideally located skating rink in downtown which is perfect for the whole family to enjoy. The Aspen Recreation Center (known locally as the ARC) is just out of town a bit and also on the free bus route. It’s a great place to visit for swimming with the kids, tackling the climbing wall, skating on their very large indoor skating rink, or sledding on the hill.
You can always go to www.aspenchamber.org to check out the calendar of events so you will be in the know of what is going on in and around town. You may want to check out one of the concerts or shows that are scheduled at the Wheeler Opera House. The Aspen Film Fest starts Dec. 21 (www.aspenfilm.org) and has an exciting list of films that will be shown. You will not be without something to do in Aspen!
Our best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2017!
We hope to see you soon!
