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!
