Thanks to our moderate elevation at just over 6,000 feet and an ideal amount of moisture (it rains about 50+ days a year), Aspen Glen’s comparatively warmer climate is often described as a “banana belt.” We enjoy mild yet distinct mountain seasons, far more temperate than nearby mountain towns, including Aspen. Trees change to brilliant colors in the fall, snow falls in the winter, wildflowers bloom in the spring, and summer is generally cloudless and beautiful. That means year-round sports: skiing in the winter, golf and tennis from mid-March through mid-to-late November, Gold Medal fly fishing whenever you like and so much more.
Aspen Glen is truly a winter wonderland with picturesque snowfalls and outdoor activities galore. Nearby skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice skating, cross-country skiing, sledding, and fly fishing are just the beginning. There’s après ski fun, the ballet and holiday festivities for the whole family.
This time of year is full of surprises in Aspen Glen. The weather could warm up, wildflowers will bloom, aspen trees will quiver with new leaves and you can plan picnics, hikes, rafting, golf and fishing. Or, the ski season could suddenly stretch out to mid-April, reminding you not to pack away your winter gear just yet.
Ahhh. The idyllic days of summer have arrived. With daytime temperatures typically in the moderate 70s and 80s (and nights cooling off to the 50s and 60s), everyone’s playing tennis and golf, swimming, hiking, biking and just relaxing by the pool. And if friends and family are visiting our little slice of paradise, there’s plenty to keep everyone active and happy.
Few places on earth are as spectacular as Aspen Glen in autumn. The valley is ablaze with aspen trees turning gold against the crystal-clear blue sky. The days are perfect for golf, hiking, biking, playing tennis and fishing, while the nights are just cool enough for a hot toddy with friends. Because there are exciting cultural events every season, you’ll find something to inspire you day and night.
