Spring Into Bluebird Pow Days in Aspen
Embrace the classic Colorado skiing scene from spring break to closing day with these Aspen events and self-guided adventures.
Spring Fun on the Mountain
Anytime we can ski and play in Aspen, it’s pretty special. But springtime brings something extra magical to the exclusive corner of Colorado. Sparkling bluebird days, T-shirt skiing, mountain deck après parties and fewer crowds make the Roaring Fork Valley a sweet spring destination.
The warm spring sunshine and lower elevation mean gorgeous snowpacked, yet soft, runs at Aspen Snowmass. Some days, it can feel like you have the mountain to yourself. Other days, there’s a celebration unfolding at every base and mid-mountain perch. Pack your sunscreen, light jacket and party pants!
Mother Nature runs the show, so be ready for an epic powder day and world-class skiing at Aspen Highlands or a late-start ski day where the sun warms the runs while you rest and recharge at the new Unravel Coffee+ Bar by Gravity Haus. After an unforgettable day on the slopes, tap into Aspen’s legendary aprés-ski scene — find live DJ sets at the local art museum, Aspen mountainside buzz at Ajax Tavern, European-style champagne parties at Aspen Highland’s Cloud 9, sunny patio drinks at Elk Camp at Snowmass, and a Wet Deck rooftop pool party at The W Aspen.
