 Maroon Bells



Maroon Bells: The most photographed peaks in North America are the perfect Rocky Mountain Backdrop for amateur and professional photographers alike. (Summer Only)





Smuggler Mountain Observation Deck: Smuggler is affectionately called "Aspen's Highway", but with a spectacular vista of Aspen Mountain rising up out of town, who can blame the dedicated hikers that make their way up each day. (Summer & Winter)





Continental Divide - Independence Pass: Drive east of Aspen along the winding, two-lane Highway 82. Dress warmly because the weather is different at 12,095'. (Summer Only)





Top of the Ute Trail: Another beautiful view of Aspen looking towards Red Mountain and up Independence Pass, the Ute Trail is difficult, climbing 1000 vertical feet in .9 miles. (Summer Only)





Dancing Fountain: Both children and adults delight in the dancing waters of the Hyman Avenue fountain. (Summer Only)





Hyman Avenue Bear: We don't recommend having a close encounter with a real Black Bear, but there's no harm in snapping a picture with the "nail bear" on the Hyman Avenue Mall. (Summer & Winter)





Top of Aspen Mountain: Ride the gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain for spectacular views & photos that will absolutely make it into a frame. (Summer & Winter)  





Historic Downtown Aspen: Snap a photo in front of the Wheeler Opera House or in the lobby of the iconic Hotel Jerome. (Summer & Winter)





Weather: If the timing is right your friends will be blown away by a photo of snow in June, or sunglasses & a t-shirt under your ski jacket in March. The old saying goes "If you don't like the weather in Colorado, wait 5 minutes or drive 5 miles" so you will be treated to photo worthy weather no matter what the time of year. (Year Round)  





Events: The special events in Aspen are world-renowned. Join us for one of them and watch the likes stack up on your Facebook page when your friends see you on the half-pipe wall of the X Games as Shawn White soars overhead, or dressed in your summer best in front of the Grand Tasting tent at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen.  (Year Round)
