Summer Activities

Aspen in summer presents athletes and nature loves an unequalled range of outdoor activities. After a full day of outdoor activities, guests of the Aspen Mountain Lodge can rejuvenate at the world-class Aspen Club and Spa with 77,000 square feet offering work-out facilities, pool, sauna, massage, fitness classes, child care and salon.

Hikers can explore the Maroon Bells, an imposing reddish mountain with two 14,000-foot peaks, on the loop from Smuggler to Hunter Creek; take on the challenging 10-mile trail to the neighboring ski town of Crested Butte; or ramble along the Roaring Fork surrounded by carpets of wildflowers.
Thrill seekers can rent a high-tech mountain bike, ride the gondola up Ajax Mountain and take a death-defying run down its world-class ski trails. (Or if they have the quads and the aerobic capacity to handle it, they can ride up.) For special deals visit
Negotiate our sometimes wild, sometimes calm rivers in a raft full of friends or in your own kayak. For the more adventuresome the legendary Arkansas River is just a short drive away.
Those who favor less strenuous pursuits can go fly-fishing in the Frying Pan, a spectacular 70-foot-wide river set in pine forest and aspen trees and noted for its high density of rainbow and brown trout. Or they can take a leisurely bike ride along the Roaring Fork to Woody Creek Tavern for a burger and a cold Fat Tire beer.
