All Day FREE! Aspen Skiers on Parade Scavenger Hunt | City of Aspen

The City of Aspen has partnered with a Denver based company, Let’s Roam, to host a free scavenger hunt through downtown Aspen called Aspen Skiers on Parade. The adventure begins with downloading a free app and then following clues and gathering points as participants move from various points of interest downtown. Working alone or as a team, players will learn unique facts about Aspen and will likely visit a few overlooked destinations.

At each clue location, a tiny skier statuette will greet players to maintain the Aspen spirit and keep participants on the right track. For those who complete the hunt correctly, a free cookie awaits as a prize…but you must play to figure out how to get it.

To join the hunt, players must download the free Let’s Roam app for Apple or Android or go to www.letsroam.com/aspenskier from your mobile device. Then users will create a login and enter the code: aspen skier. Play begins December 22, 2020 and is offered through April 1, 2021.

Please adhere to Aspen’s Mandatory Mask Zone rule and wear a face covering while hunting.

The careful blending of cutting-edge technology with the great emotional impact and uplifting messages in G.F. Handel’s Messiah create something entirely new, novel, and unexpectedly engaging.

FREE! National Candy Cane Day | Aspen Chamber Resort Association Guest Pavilion (Cooper Ave.)

Join us in celebrating National Candy Cane Day! Please stop by the Information Booth across from Paradise Bakery to receive a candy cane. While supplies last.

In 1844, a recipe for a straight peppermint candy stick, which was white with colored stripes, was published. However, some stories tell of all-white candy sticks in much earlier times. Folklore tells of the origin of the candy cane, yet no documented proof of its real beginning. Literature begins mentioning the candy cane in 1866, and it was first known to be mentioned in connection with Christmas in 1874.  As early as 1882, candy canes have been hung on Christmas trees.

Striped red and white candy canes were first introduced in 1900.

Working alone or as a team, players will learn unique facts about Aspen and will likely visit a few overlooked destinations.

At each clue location, a tiny skier statuette will greet players to maintain the Aspen spirit and keep participants on the right track. For those who complete the hunt correctly, a free cookie awaits as a prize…but you must play to figure out how to get it.

To join the hunt, players must download the free Let’s Roam app for Apple or Android or go to www.letsroam.com/aspenskier from your mobile device. Then users will create a login and enter the code: aspen skier. Play begins December 22, 2020 and is offered through April 1, 2021.

Please adhere to Aspen’s Mandatory Mask Zone rule and wear a face covering while hunting.
