HAVE FUN IN AMERICA'S #1 RESORT COMMUNITY
The City of Aspen is the Home Rule Municipality that is the county seat and the most populous municipality of Pitkin County, Colorado, United States.
The city population was 6658 at the 2010 United States Census.
Aspen is situated in a remote area of the Rocky Mountains' Sawatch Range and Elk Mountains, along the Roaring Fork River at an elevation just below 8,000 feet above sea level on the Western Slope, 11 miles west of the Continental Divide.
If there's one thing Aspen's known for, it's skiing. This tiny mountain town is surrounded by four monumental ski areas: Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk (a favorite among beginners) and the ever-popular Snowmass Ski Resort.
The luster isn't lost when the snow melts, however. The Rockies offer some spectacular hiking spots — like the Maroon Bell peaks — with jaw dropping vistas.
If you're looking for a more relaxing getaway, treat yourself to a massage at an area spa or try a therapeutic soak in the Glenwood Springs natural hot springs.
When it comes to vacation destinations — from the great outdoors to cultural activities, shopping, exciting nightlife and one-of-a-kind restaurants — Aspen Snowmass offers the complete vacation experience.
Consistently rated No. 1 in North America for dining, Aspen Snowmass has more than 100 restaurants, bars and clubs from which to choose.
