There are special places and unique vistas around nearly every Colorado corner. You can help ensure these places exist for generations to come by staying on roads and trails, keeping speeds in check, leaving campsites and picnic spots just as you found them, and following instructional signs while you’re out and about in our state.
Enjoy a hike on the well-worn Rim Trail path — in the winter and summer — for a stunning 360-degree view of Snowmass Village, aka an incredible photo op. Don't forget to take water with you!
Hear the roar of the crowd as a bull rider hangs on for dear life or as someone takes off on a horse for barrel racing at the Snowmass Rodeo. Celebrating its 46th season, the rodeo is one of the longest running in Colorado and features saddle bronc, team roping and a calf scramble for the kids.
Hop on a bike and tour Maroon Bells with Blazing Adventures. Your 12-mile downhill journey takes place on a road that is closed to vehicles most of the summer. It's the best way to experience "the most photographed peaks in North America."
In the summer, enjoy free live music concerts on the ski slope as part of the Snowmass Free Concert Series. You'll feel like a local when you set up your picnic basket next to the thousands of families and friends enjoying the sunset and tunes.
The bike trek to the Woody Creek Tavern covers ground that once held the railroad track that came into Aspen. The trail is a smooth dirt double track that follows the picturesque Roaring Fork River. You'll end at The Woody Creek Tavern — a local favorite — a small bar with a large amount of character, and a favorite haunt of Hunter S. Thompson.
Start your Friday with the Après Artisan Market in Snowmass Base Village, which showcases locally-owned businesses selling specialtiy foods, clothing and handcrafted goods. Then end your day at Fridays on the Mall, where live music, extended business hours, happy hour deals and s'mores greet you.
