SUMMER ADVENTURES

'Tis the season to hike, bike, swim, fish, putt, float and laze about. Welcome to summer in Aspen. Every year we think we’ve uncovered it all, but somehow with every new rock we turn over there’s another reward. New trails and rides. Hidden waterfalls. Views we still have a hard time believing. That’s Aspen for ya. Always a pleasant surprise.

Questions? Book an adventure? Email us or call (970) 925-3025.
And you always talk to our Adventure Concierge or front desk once you’re here.

Hiking to Crested Butte

Between Aspen and the quaint Victorian town of Crested Butte you will find one of North America's most spectacular mountain ranges — the Elks. While the two towns have a common past rooted in silver mining (and are only 11 miles apart via backcountry hiking trail), they are 100 miles apart via road.

This adventure takes guests on a vigorous six-hour hike through the heart of the Elk Mountains to the town of Crested Butte. Our special Aspen-Crested Butte Experience involves a 20% room discount (based on availability) as well accommodations at the Nordic Inn and special transportation arrangements.
