Summer, a season not to be missed in Aspen. "I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer," is a phrase you'll hear often around town. The weather is one of the highlights. During the day the temperature hovers in the 70's and 80's, and by evening the mercury will drop into the 60's. The lack of humidity makes Aspen a place you can always have a good hair day. Arts & culture enthusiasts will be just as fulfilled as the adventure junkie during summer in Aspen.
