Aspen and Snowmass Guided Sightseeing Tours in Winter

With these Aspen and Snowmass guided sightseeing tours in winter you’ll be able to experience the excitement and beauty of one of the worlds great ski areas. Aspen was named for the abundance of aspen trees in the area, but today the name is synonymous with colorful characters, movie stars, and the extremely wealthy. Oh, and let’s not forget the world-class skiing and the stunning mountain beauty.

Aspen was founded as a mining camp in the late 1880s during the Colorado silver boom. We’ll explore some of the buildings and relics of this bygone era, including the ghost town of Ashcroft, only 12 miles away. We’ll take a ski tour of all four mountains, from the beginner’s slopes to the super challenging ski runs to the beautiful cross country ski trails. But there is also a quirky side to our Aspen and Snowmass guided sightseeing tours – posted on many of the trees in the four ski mountain areas (especially on Aspen Mountain), you can find dozens of hidden “shrines” made by locals in homage to many famous people like John Denver, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, and The Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, among others.

We’ll also take you to a “local’s” secret, the best après-ski parties, where dancing on the tables is encouraged. We’ll also take a tour of downtown and its “ski in – ski-out” culture, and go deep into the snowy wilderness for an overnight in a remote mountain hut.

People tell us all the time that our tours make travel easier and much more interesting. So download this guide to your mobile and jump on the gondola with us for a comprehensive tour of the most storied mountain town in North America!

Tips

  • Roaring Fork Transportation Authority, or RFTA, provides free bus service within Aspen, Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands, and Snowmass Village, with pay service to the surrounding communities of Basalt, El Jebel, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, and Rifle.
  • Aspen/Snowmass is accessible by two of the most convenient airports in the mountains: Aspen/Pitkin County Airport (ASE), three miles from Aspen, and Eagle County Airport (EGE), 70 miles from Aspen. If a flight cannot land in ASE or EGE, it will be rerouted to Denver and passengers will be brought by bus to their destination, for free.
  • Buying lift tickets, lessons, and equipment rentals a week or more in advance saves money. It also saves time by having your lift tickets delivered directly to your lodge. Save even more by leaving your gear at home - no airline baggage fees - and rent equipment from one of the sport stores in town. For more information on Aspen Skiing Company, you may call them or visit their website.
  • To get to Ashcroft, drive one mile northwest out of Aspen on State Route 82 past the Holden/Marolt Mining and Ranching Museum. At the Roundabout follow the signs 12 miles south to Ashcroft. A system of 29 backcountry huts in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, connected by 350 miles of suggested routes, is managed by 10th Mountain. For information on renting a hut, see their website. Reservations are also taken by phone.
  • If you love powder skiing, take a 'powder tour.' Luxury snowcats take you to prime untracked stashes on the backside of Aspen Mountain. Fresh tracks are guaranteed and a gourmet lunch is included. For reservations, visit the Aspen Mountain Powder Tours desk in the gondola building, call them, or contact them via their website. Cancellation policies apply; please inquire.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
