The weekend weather is ideal for any kind of outdoor activity you can imagine, so bike, hike, climb or stroll to your heart's content! Check our homepage for the current weather and plan your day.
If you're in downtown Aspen tomorrow morning, don't miss the most adorable parade of the year, the Aspen Children's Parade. Beginning at 10am in front of Boogie's Diner, the children of Kids First, will stroll through town with their teachers, ending at the Fountain across from the Wheeler Opera House. Expect colorful signs, bright t-shirts and plenty of hugable little kids. For details about Kids First and their early childhood programs, visit kidsfirst@cityofaspencom.
It may look like spring here in town, but on the top of Aspen Mountain, it's still winter. So the good people at the Aspen Skiing Company are opening Aspen Mountain for a weekend of Memorial Day skiing. Beginning Saturday, May 24 and ending on Memorial Day, May 26, the Silver Queen Gondola will run from 9am to 2pm each day. After some runs, you can always come back down and play a round of golf!
