A former mining town, like so many other Colorado ski towns, Aspen draws visitors from all over the country even before the year's first snowfall. The trees from which the town draws its name produce spectacular fall colors.
The charming and historical town, nestled amidst the trees at the foot of the ski slopes also draws weekenders all throughout the year from nearby Denver.
Once the snow falls, however, the amount of visitors never stops, drawing in skiers and snowboarders alike. Aspen offers four different mountains all linked by shuttle and under the same lift ticket for those who never tire of trying different slopes.
