The Best Non-Skiing Activities for Winters in Aspen

When you think of Aspen, Colorado, of course you think of skiing and snowboarding. However, you don't have to be a mountain sports enthusiast to make the most of your winter-time visit. Outside of hitting the slopes, visitors and locals alike enjoy:

  1. Shopping and dining

  2. Hiking

  3. Cultural events

  4. Tubing, sledding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing

  5. Music shows

  6. And more!

You might think to yourself, "Sure, but why would I go all the way to Aspen in winter to NOT ski/snowboard?" The appeal is that the list above is full of world-class options set against breathtaking scenery.

Shopping includes exclusive boutiques like Hermès and Loro Piana, as well as local stores like Pitkin County Dry Goods and Monkeys of Aspen. The dining is similar, including high-end chains like Matsuhisa and Catch, as well as niche local spots like Duemani or Bosq.

People have said that Belly Up, the primary music venue in Aspen, is the best venue they've ever been to because it's so small and intimate.

Not to mention the sheer beauty of the city. Even if you're not heading up the lifts, waking up surrounded by mountains and breathing in that fresh mountain air is a feeling unlike any other. What makes Aspen great is that sure, it's cold, and yes, there's snow... but it's a dry cold and a SUNNY winter. So it doesn't feel all that cold.

Whatever season you come to our beautiful small town, we know you'll have an incredible time. Don't hesitate to reach out to Sarah Rose Events in Aspen for any of your event planning needs while you're here!
