Summer Activities

At Aspen Snowmass, we are grateful to have the vast wilderness of the Elk Mountains as our playground, and wide open spaces to recreate in. Thankfully, social distancing is a natural part of a life lived outside. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re also putting in place procedures that will keep our guests, employees, and community safe and healthy.
