Tuesday, Aug 01, 2023 0


Head to Aspen and Snowmass Village in summer for an adrenaline filled holiday surrounded by some of Colorado’s most dramatic landscapes. From ziplining through the deep Aspen forests, to soaring high above the Elk Mountain Range, there are endless opportunities for thrill-seeking travellers


Gold-level riding at Snowmass Bike Park


Featuring 25 miles of pristinely maintained downhill trails extending almost 3,000 vertical feet, Snowmass Bike Park has a trail for every ability from beginner-friendly singletrack to adrenaline-inducing downhill. Situated at the top of Elk Camp Chairlift all the way down to Snowmass Base Village, it is open daily from 21 June – 4 September and on weekends in September through to the first week of October. The bike park offers weekly races featuring big jumps and features, bringing together the mountain biking community and inspiring riders to push themselves to their limit. Snowmass additionally hosts multiple iconic cycling events such as the Enduro World Series and the Snowmass 50. Keen bikers can take part in regular bike clinics at the park, suitable for riders of all abilities where beginners can learn the basics of mountain-biking and advanced riders can fine-tune their downhill freeriding.


Rock climbing with Aspen Expeditions


Aspen Expeditions offers unique privately guided custom short day or full day rock climbing experiences up and down the scenic Independence Pass and surrounding areas. With no prior experience required, this is the perfect way to test your limits as you learn how to rappel off rock faces and navigate a series of different rock climbing routes with the help of an expert guide. More experienced climbers can embark on a multi-pitch adventure day where you will climb a number of different steep rock faces along Independence Pass and enjoy unmatched views of the Elk Mountain Range.


River rafting with Blazing Adventures


If you’re looking for a thrill, head to Blazing Adventures – which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year – where you can find a wide variety of tours and adventures. With snow still melting off the mountains into the rivers due to excessively high snowfall last winter, the white water rafting season has been extended. Blazing Adventures offers a variety of exhilarating rafting tours ranging from family-friendly rides with amazing views of the Glenwood Canyon, to full day rafting expeditions on class III and IV white-water. Pick up to, and from, major hotels in Aspen and Snowmass Village can be arranged for guests as well as lunches on longer experiences.


Hot air ballooning with Above It All Balloon Co.


Above It All Balloon Company offers year round hot air balloon rides over the incredible Aspen and Snowmass Village areas. Lasting around an hour, you will set off early in the morning to catch the sun as it rises over the spectacular Elk Mountains Range nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. After soaring high above the vast Snowmass Bush Creek Valley you will finish your adrenaline fuelled morning with a delightful champagne breakfast, toasting to your flight.


Zipping and climbing in The Lost Forest


The Lost Forest is the epicentre of summer exploration and adventure in Snowmass Village. From high-flying ziplines and ropes courses to the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster and a climbing wall, there are countless ways to explore and immerse yourself in the outdoors. Perfect for families and thrill-seekers, the Treeline Trail Challenge Course combines rapells, ziplines, bridges, and ladders in an elevated obstacle course amongst the towering Aspen trees. If you’re after a more relaxed adventure, take a ride on the Breathtaker Alpine Coast and zip through the trees on a ten-minute thrill ride to experience the beautiful forest.


Paragliding with Aspen Paragliding


If you’re willing to go above and beyond, Aspen Paragliding offers a once-in-a-lifetime birds-eye-view experience where thrill meets tranquillity as you soar high above the alpine town with a professional pilot. The premier paragliding school in the country and one of the first to get permission to fly from a ski resort, Aspen Paragliding provides a wide range of experiences with some flights taking visitors up to 18,000 feet, available for visitors aged 6 to 75.
