Memorial Day Weekend in Aspen


It's almost here! With Independence Pass already wide open, town is filling up with the first of the season's sight-seers. The Gondola starts running this weekend, restaurants and bars are kicking off the summer and music and movies are playing around town.

And outside, local bikers, hikers and climbers are flocking up the mountains and in and around backyard trails, as late spring and early summer get into the swing of things.

Gondola Rides Resume!


Mark your calendars: starting weekends as of May 26, the gondola will re-open for hikers, bikers and sight-seers galore. It's one of the highlights of an Aspen afternoon, seeing the splendor and taking in the views atop Aspen Mountain. The ambitious hike and up, and gondola ride down, while other know a glass of wine and a good book on the top of the world is equally worthy way to enjoy the ride.

Mother's Day Ideas


Another beautiful weekend, perfect for Mother's Day outings. Try brunch at BB's Kitchen, or Justice Snow's, especially designed to toast the day; take a walk through town and and admire the blooming, just planted flowers and the colorful budding trees; or go for a drive to the Maroon Bells, or up newly-opened Independence Pass to the Continental Divide for a panoramic view of the new spring scenery.

Happy Mother's Day to you and yours, from Aspen Square Hotel!
