Inside Tracks

Pat, our Summer Adventure Concierge, is among the pros who give you and other guests an insider’s tour of Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands or Snowmass.

Inside Tracks is the ideal adventure for anyone interested in a full day of skiing/riding in a fun group setting.

First Tracks

You know you like to be first. First Tracks is another adventure designed exclusively for guests of the Limelight. Get ready to enjoy access to Aspen Mountain before the gondola opens to the not-quite-as-lucky general public. Just you, a few others, and miles of untouched corduroy. Of course, if Mother Nature cooperates, your morning could start with a glorious run buried in knee-deep powder. Our fingers are crossed!

Cruiser and Fat Bike Tours

Pedal your way through Aspen’s surrounding nature and history with a complimentary cruiser bike tour led by the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES) or the Aspen Historical Society. Last year, we explored historical sites such as the Midland Railroad, grounds of the Wheeler Stallard Museum and the Victorian West End. Environmental adventures took us to Hallam Lake’s vast 25-acre nature preserve where we viewed resident birds of prey from various observation decks. Cruiser bikes included for guests of the Limelight. Locals welcome, but must provide their own bikes.

Snowshoe Tours

Sometimes you just want to get away from it all. In partnership with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, guests of the Limelight are able to enjoy complimentary snowshoe tours throughout the Aspen area. There’s really nothing quite like a walk in the woods where the only sounds you hear are from wildlife and snow crunching underfoot.
