Aspen is one of Colorado's favorite year-round resort areas. It sits at the upper end of the Roaring Fork Valley, with the Roaring Fork River, a superb trout stream, running through town. It offers an interesting history, challenging outdoor recreation opportunities, abundant cultural activities, pleasant climate and beautiful natural scenery.
Aspen is world renowned for its downhill skiing. Aspen Mountain rises imposingly from town and is one of four ski areas surrounding Aspen. Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk , and Snowmass all lie within 12 miles of town. The spectacular Elk Mountains rise to the south and west of Aspen, with the Williams Mountains and the Sawatch Range to the east. The Maroon Creek, Castle Creek and Hunter Creek Valleys are all easily accessible from town. Much of the high mountain area surrounding Aspen lies within designated wilderness areas in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass, Hunter-Fryingpan, and Collegiate Peaks wildernesses.
The Maroon Bells are some of the most photographed mountains in North America and are a popular destination. In addition to the restored historic buildings within the town of Aspen, Ashcroft and Independence are well preserved ghost towns which offer a scenic outing and a glimpse into the region's rich mining history. Independence Pass, a main summer route into town, Castle Creek Road to Ashcroft, and Maroon Creek Road are all paved roads offering spectacular scenery.
