3 to 4 year oldsWhile you’re out on a morning hike in the surrounding Elk Mountains, your 3- or 4-year-old will be enjoying nature too. At this age, children are learning to adventure and explore. That means miniature hikes during Camp Aspen Snowmass’ nature day (Mondays). On Wednesdays, they get a chance to play in the Elk Camp Adventure Center, testing out some of the smaller obstacles and the fishing pond, as well as the easier routes on the rock climbing wall.
5 year oldsPerhaps you spend your days mountain biking or road cycling. Your 5-year-old will also be coasting down the mountain, but on a mountain board. Like snowboarding in the winter, mountain boarding puts kids on a skateboard hybrid that they can use to navigate down dirt trails or paved roads. Of course, for this age, there’s some hiking and biking, and lots of swimming too.
