Kite Lake Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Chad Lovette

Empty winter mountains. Variety of hikes to different 14ers. Incredible views.

Park and hike about 2.5 miles to the campground (snowshoes help). Dig out a wall of snow to block your tent from wind, and be sure to get staked in deep. There are peaks in all directions. About 4.5 steep miles to the top depending on where you decide to venture. Mt. Bross is to the right just beside and big snowy valley. Follow the path until you finally make it to the last peak. The rocky ground at the top will look like you're on Mars!

Summer, a season not to be missed in Aspen!

"I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer," is a phrase you'll often hear around town.  The weather is one of the highlights. During the day the temperature hovers in the 70's and 80's, and by evening the mercury will drop into the 60's. Arts & culture enthusiasts will be just as fulfilled as the adventure junkie during summer in Aspen.  The events calendar abounds with activities for everyone, from cultural events to athletic pursuits.

Experiencing all Aspen has to offer is as easy as opening the front door. Join us for a summer adventure that’s anything but ordinary.
