With miles and miles of groomed trails stretching from Aspen to Snowmass to Basalt, cross- country skiing in Aspen is a great way to get some exercise and sunshine, explore the Roaring Fork Valley and have an exhilarating Nordic skiing adventure.
For a small mountain town, Aspen has a rich and varied history, going back to 1879, in silver mining, ranching, and eventually, skiing. Anyone can see this by strolling down Main Street past Victorian-era buildings such as the Sardy House and the Hotel Jerome.
At the onset of fall, the aspen trees in the Colorado high country — including those in Aspen and Snowmass — lose their vibrant green and take on a golden hue. These magnificent golden stands of aspen groves attract leaf peepers from all over the state and country, as the Aspen autumn landscape is absolutely stunning.
High-end boutiques and world famous designer names define Aspen shopping. Gucci, Dior, Valentino, Theory, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Dolce & Gabbana, as well as local purveyors of finely crafted goods and fine jewelry, are all within easy walking distance of guests staying at the Aspen Square Condominium Hotel.
