As we approach the month of December, Aspen becomes a true winter wonderland. Wreaths festooned with red ribbons hang on the lamp posts in downtown Aspen; lights adorn nearly every tree; store windows display festive decorations; kids build snowmen in Wagner Park.

With miles and miles of groomed trails stretching from Aspen to Snowmass to Basalt, cross country skiing in Aspen is a great way to explore the Roaring Fork Valley, get some exercise and sunshine, and have an exciting Nordic skiing adventure.

The Roaring Fork Valley is a destination for lovers of the sport of fly fishing. With four different rivers to fish, each offering a spectacular, challenging, and unique river environment, there is nothing quite like a fly fishing adventure on one of the local rivers in the Aspen area.

During your winter vacation in Aspen, spend a sunny afternoon or a starry evening twirling around one of Aspen's local ice rinks. Take in the sights and sounds of downtown Aspen at SK8, or race around the NHL regulation-size rink at the Lewis Ice Arena at the Aspen Recreation Center (ARC).

Aspen Mountain is situated in the heart of Aspen. The 11,212 foot ski mountain rises beautifully above the town of Aspen, Colorado to create one of the most stunning vistas no matter where you stand in downtown 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.

Once the sun sets in Aspen and Snowmass, ample enjoyment can still be had on the Aspen ski mountains well into the evening with the snowcat dinners.

Discover the quiet beauty of wide open alpine meadows and evergreen forests while on a snowmobile adventure in Aspen. Explore Aspen's winter landscape by snowmobile, and gain access to pristine backcountry locations.
