Aspen's Secret Season
Relax, explore local eateries, or enjoy fly-fishing and a mellow hike. Reconnect with your family, yourself, and nature during this magical time of year when you can breathe deep and access Aspen as no other season permits.
Spring in Aspen is short & sweet. You can experience spring ski days in March & April, enjoying warmer temperatures, goggle tans, and sunny après ski. These days can often be followed by a winter storm warning and one of the best powder days of your life. A fickle time of year, but you're in Aspen, so relax, sit back & enjoy Mother Nature's show. The official ski season closes around mid-April, but if the snow is still sticking, bonus weekends will be announced. After the ski season ends, you can enjoy a quieter time in town while the crocus, daffodils and crab apple trees bloom. In a mild spring, when the roads are clear, cyclists can enjoy a car-free road bike ride to the Maroon Bells or top of Independence Pass prior to the roads opening to cars for the summer season. Late May & early June are ideal for white water rafting, the snow has just started to melt & the rivers are ready to take you on a wild ride.
