World-class skiing is always a great winter sport option in Aspen, however there is a fascinating array of other activities from which to choose. Ice skating, winter fly fishing, snowshoeing, dog sledding…the possibilities are endless.
Cross Country Skiing
As trails wind along Castle Creek and traverse through the Valley beneath the peaks of the Elk Mountain range, guests find themselves engulfed in beauty and silence. Lunch at the “famous” Pine Creek Cookhouse may be included for an additional fee.
Spend the day in the high country, snowmobiling past frozen blue crystal waterfalls and unsurpassed snowy vistas. Warm up in a rustic cabin with a hot lunch before riding back to Aspen for après ski.
Learn the fundamentals of snowshoeing as you visit scenic trails with a naturalist guide. The fun terrain is appropriate for all abilities and fitness levels. A healthy snack is included or a gourmet lunch may be purchased for an additional cost.
Winter Fly Fishing
Mild winters and great fishing are an experience not to be missed. Fish in the Roaring Fork and other local streams. We also have a large selection of private water. Our onsite adventure guides with Aspen Outfitting can assist with excursion planning.
The Silver Circle Ice Rink is adjacent to the hotel. Aspen’s only outdoor ice rink offers rentals and skating open daily from 12:00pm to 9:00pm. If you prefer indoor ice skating, the City of Aspen Ice Garden offers daily public ice skating for all ages.
This unique two-hour adventure offers trips on handcrafted sleds through spectacular Maroon Bells/Snowmass wilderness. Two and four passenger sleds are available for passengers of all ages.
Shot Gun Shooting
Learn the traditional British method of clay and target shooting from one of America’s top professionals. This half-day program offers individual or group lessons including targets and ammunition. Custom gun fitting is also available.
