For mountain travelers wanting to summer in style, Aspen Snowmass is just the place to do it. Aspen Snowmass sits in the southeast end of the Roaring Fork Valley, 40 miles south of Glenwood Springs. At 7,890 feet, Aspen’s five-star resorts, world-class dining and designer shops are surrounded by more than 50 miles of lift-accessible trails. Snowmass caters to mountain bikers of all skill levels, accessing both cross-country and freeride trails with the Elk Camp Gondola and Elk Camp Chairlift.

The Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers provide guests with an opportunity to net a trophy trout or test their whitewater rafting skills on a guided trip.
