Every year, thousands of people head to Aspen to experience some of the world’s finest skiing. However, as more and more people seem to be realizing, once the snow melts and summer takes over, Aspen offers a whole other type of adventure and beauty. Curious what you might be able to do in Aspen during the warm months? You’re in luck! In today’s blog, we here at Superior Executive Services are going to share with you just five (of the many) things you can do in Aspen during the warm summer months.
Bike Through the Mountains
Love the Rocky Mountains? Want to see as much of them as you can? Consider mountain biking. Exploring the trails around Aspen on a mountain bike is the perfect way to explore all the various nooks, crannies, trails, and forests. While this can be an intimidating sport, there are plenty of beginner trails. And if the idea of having to pedal your bike uphill is bumming you out, be sure to check out the Snowmass bike park, where you will have the option of a lift along with access to more than 50 miles of trails.
Hike a 14er
If you have never visited Colorado, you may not be familiar with the term, “14er”. These are simply the glorious peaks that reach above 14,000 feet. Luckily for those planning Aspen vacations, Aspen sits at the heart of a number of 14ers. While there 14ers closest to Aspen are rough and difficult, there are a number of 14ers nearby. La Plata Peak, Mt Elbert, and Mt Massive are all great options for those staying in Aspen. While it may not seem like everyone’s idea of a vacation, hiking a 14er can be a deeply challenging and rewarding experience! Don’t rule it out!
Check out a Concert
Nothing accentuates the joy of summer like live music. If you are taking a trip to Aspen this summer, you’ll likely have plenty of chances to see some great music. Not only will you be able to see loads of free concerts, but there are a number of great venues around the area, such as The Belly Up. This summer, The Belly Up will welcome The Flaming Lips, Ziggy Marley, Gomez, Chris Isaak, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and many more.
Marvel at the Stars
Even a Colorado mountain vacation should include some relaxation. While you will have plenty of great opportunities for relaxation — especially if you are taking part in one of our luxury vacation packages — the summer provides a truly unique opportunity to soak up the cosmos. Summer in Aspen is the perfect time to sit back, relax, and stargaze at the beautiful Colorado sky. If you are visiting in August, you will even have the opportunity to learn about the stars by taking part in the annual Stars Above Aspen event.
Stroll and Crawl
What trip to Colorado would be complete without sampling some local brews? Summer is the perfect time to do it. All over Aspen, there are a number of pub crawls.
