Aspen Square Daily News
Lovers of biking and Independence Pass are excited about tomorrow's annual Ride for the Pass bike race. The race takes place on Saturday, May 19, beginning at the winter closure gate and ending at the ghost town of Independence. The road over Independence Pass will be closed from 6am - 1:30pm for the safety of the racers.
On Sunday, participants of the Aspen Cycling Criterium will roar through downtown Aspen in the morning, with tight turns and fierce competition. It's a popular springtime spectacle!
The snow is quickly melting from the ski slopes above Aspen and we're preparing to welcome the warm weather and sunshine of our summer season. Spring flowers are popping up all over town, and our businesses are getting ready for the summer season. Aspen offers so much to see and do, from the two-month long Aspen Music Festival to theater, the Saturday Market, gondola rides to the top of Aspen Mountain and all kinds of recreation. Our current spring rates are a great value and we are ready to welcome you! Give us a call and plan your Aspen Square summer visit now.

Frontier Airlines is no longer operating into Aspen (we were sorry to see them leave us!) but his past winter we welcomed American Airlines to Aspen with daily direct flights between Aspen and Dallas and Aspen to Los Angeles. The American flights are off until mid-June then they return for the summer, and will be with us next winter as well. We will be glad to see them again! Air service toA spen remains strong.
