Known as a ski resort town, Aspen's history goes back to its roots as a silver-mining village tucked away in an isolated valley of the Rocky Mountains.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Aspen Snowmass. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Aspen Mountain / Ajax and Buttermilk Mountain. Get in touch with nature at Aspen Highlands and Krabloonik Dogsled Rides. There's still lots to do: stroll through Aspen Skiing Company, identify plant and animal life at Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area, appreciate the history behind The John Denver Sanctuary, and take in the dramatic natural features at Rocky Mountains.

To find other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Aspen trip maker website.

Getting from Denver to Aspen by combination of train and flight takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: drive; or do a combination of bus and car. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Denver in January, with highs in Aspen at 1°C and lows at -15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
