Fall Guide: Aspen Snowmass

Dining, hiking, biking, leaf peeping, and more—Aspen Snowmass comes alive in the fall season. Here is your guide to enjoying the best of Colorado’s central mountains before winter creeps in.

Fall is unforgettable at Aspen Snowmass. Days can be warm and deceptively summer-like, followed by a sudden dusting of snow overnight. The abrupt temperature changes can set off a tidal wave of color among the aspen trees, willows and tundra plants, creating one of the most colorful displays of autumn in North America.

Favorite fall activities range from mountain biking through the trees, hiking into the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, visiting historic sites (which take on a mystical mood in the silence of autumn), or just cruising around town. Unlike many mountain towns in the “off season,” Aspen continues to thrive with several restaurants, shops and attractions staying open through October.

Come experience our quickest—and arguably most picturesque—seasons with this guide to fall.
