As I am sure you’ve noticed, the off-season switch has flipped! Most restaurants are empty or closing until summer, the mountains are scarce with people, and Aspen’s parking department has lowered the price per hour for parking around town.
If you’re a local, or even planning a trip to Aspen during the spring, there are many activities to keep you busy during our mud season. Start by taking some runs on one of our four mountains, and have every run practically to yourself. Now is a great time to get some cross-country skiing or hiking in with the beautiful weather we have been having. As the snow melts, Aspen and Snowmass’ world class mountain biking trails will be opening up, so be sure to get your bikes ready for a great summer of riding ahead.
If you don’t come to Aspen during the spring for the outdoor activities, then come for the retail opportunities, short waits at restaurants, spring concerts, and better deals on lodging. It’s a local’s market during the off season, so enjoy decreased prices at almost every hotel, store and restaurant! Enjoy live musical performances, starting with the Après Music Festival, a three-day musical event starting with Umphrey’s McGee followed by back to back nights of The String Cheese Incident! The Festival Starts on April 5th, and goes all weekend at the base of Buttermilk Mountain.
As always there are also killer performances at Belly Up going on all month, as well as historic ski tours, Aspen Art Museum tours, and Friday morning uphill breakfasts on buttermilk. One of my favorite artists, Xavier Rudd is playing on April 11. I hope to see you there! Have a great week in aspen! Happy springtime!

With the spring equinox two days behind us, its remarkable how many tourists have stopped me on the street to ask why it’s still snowing. If you’re a local, then this awkward in-between time that marks the start of our off season is nothing new. Standing on the outside looking in, most assume this is a bad time to be in Aspen - right after the height of our main ski season and before the start of all the summer activities. Personally, and I’m sure I’m not alone on this one, I consider this the best time to be in Aspen. It gives us all time to recharge from a long winter in preparation for a summer that always goes by too fast. There are some killer events going on in town this weekend, starting with the KickAspen Big Air event. Tonight 20 skiers and 20 snowboarders will throw down their best tricks at the base of Aspen Mountain, with the winner going home with $1,500! The event starts at 8 pm, so make sure you bundle up! After the big air event, rush over to Belly Up for a performance by instrumental electronic rock band STS9, known for pushing the boundaries and using both acoustic and electronic methods to convey their unique sound. If you don’t manage to get a ticket for tonight’s show don’t worry, the funky group will be performing every night this weekend! Also tonight, the sixth instalment of the International Ocean Film Tour at the Wheeler Opera House, showcasing the best ocean adventures and environmental documentaries from around the globe. Tomorrow night catch Aspen Laugh Festival’s event with Marc Maron, a comedian known for his raw, honest, and thought-provoking humor. As always, there will also be Aspen Historical Society lead ski tours on aspen mountain and guided tours at the Aspen Art Museum. It is forecast to snow all weekend! Stay warm and have fun in the moutnains! Happy Friday!
