Aspen Square Daily News
The fall is a favorite time in Aspen, with a slower pace and still so much to see and do. The Saturday Market continues into mid-October, and the Aspen Mountain Gondola takes visitors to the top of Aspen on weekends. The weather is usually warm and sunny during the day and crisp at night. The Aspen trees will be turning color soon enough. The trees will look like those on the right before we know it. It's a great time to visit. Ask about our reduced rates for September, and come see us!
It was late August, as racers in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge came fast into Aspen for the finish of the Queen Stage of the USPCC, 128 riders racing 131 miles over two high mountain passes from Gunnison to Aspen. As the bike racers came over Indepencence Pass, they were cheered on by thousands of race fans up on the summit, at over 12,000 feet. Crowds in town were even bigger, welcoming the riders to the finish on Main Street in front of the Court House. It was an exciting, fun and action-filled event for Aspen, and a good time was had by all! We can't wait until next year!
