Aspen Snowmass Summer Activities
Snowmass Mountain may be best known for winter activities, but when the snow thaws, there are even more activities to take advantage of during a Summer in Snowmass. Hop on board the Elk Camp Gondola with your mountain bike and experience Snowmass’ thrilling trail system. Or sign up for a naturalist hike with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies and get to know the alpine ecosystem a little better.
Summer activities in the Aspen and Snowmass area also include exciting cultural and athletic events. JasAspen holds complimentary weekly concerts throughout the summer, culminating in a nationally-acclaimed music festival Labor Day weekend. Throw in weekly rodeos, national bike races and the stunning Snowmass Balloon Festival, and there are enough activities to excite visitors all summer long. See our Calendar of Events for more details. For reservations or to assist in planning your stay at Viceroy Snowmass, contact us at 970 923 8000.
Biking & Cycling
Aspen, Colorado is home to some of the most intense athletes in the world. While biking has always been a popular sport in this area, it has assumed an even higher degree of interest (locally, nationally, and internationally).
Viceroy Snowmass has partnered with Aspen Cycling Tours, a road and mountain cycling coaching and guide service. Catering to all levels of rider from complete beginner to professional rider, they provide fully guided cycling services in Aspens beautiful Roaring Fork valley, which at the highest points includes the Maroon Bells, Ashcroft and Independence Pass but also the lesser known and equally stunning rides around Basalt, the Frying Pan river and the hills of Glenwood Springs.
Aspen & Snowmass have some of the most beautiful road biking in the country, but if you wish to ride to the top of a 14er like Mt Evans, or need a guide to ride Colorado National Monument then we’ve got you covered.
