Sleigh Rides in Aspen

sleigh rides in Aspen

Going on a sleigh ride in Aspen is a magical experience. Touring a pristine alpine meadow in a horse drawn sleigh transforms the landscape into a Colorado Rocky Mountain winter wonderland. Take in the beautiful mountain scenery, sip hot cocoa and hot apple cider, and gather the family together for a memorable Aspen sleigh ride.

Just beyond the former mining town of Ashcroft in the beautiful Castle Creek Valley is the Pine Creek Cookhouse, known for their unique winter dining experience. If you and your family are looking for an Aspen sleigh ride and dinner adventure, look to Pine Creek Cookhouse to deliver.

With Castle Creek Road closed to vehicular traffic beyond Ashcroft during the winter months, one of three ways to get to the Cookhouse is by sleigh, with the other two means of transportation being snowshoes and cross country skis. If you and the family opt for the sleigh ride, you can sit back and marvel at the spectacular mountains that make up Castle Creek Valley.

During the winter months, Pine Creek Cookhouse is open for both lunch and dinner. Being a family-friendly alpine restaurant, they offer a kid's menu. Pine Creek Cookhouse is known for its diverse menu that draws from the finest international alpine cuisines. They also use locally-sourced and organic ingredients that create rich and bright flavors. Dining at Pine Creek Cookhouse is a uniquely Aspen experience.

If you are looking solely for the magical sleigh ride experience, pick an afternoon during you Aspen vacation for a public or private sleigh ride. You and your group are met by a horse drawn carriage in Aspen, which carts you to a sleigh course winding through aspen groves and a picturesque alpine meadow. Enjoy the incredible mountain views and a cup of hot cocoa or hot cider.
