Aspen Area Recreation Description.
While downhill skiing and snowboarding are Aspen's best known recreational pursuits, winter enthusiasts are not restricted to the formal constraints of the mountains. Backcountry skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, winter hut trips, and snow camping opportunities in this region rival any in the country.

When the snow melts, Aspen offers an abundance of of opportunities for hiking , backpacking, camping, mountain biking, climbing, fly-fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, whitewater rafting, hunting, and paragliding. A visitor to the Aspen area can find high quality permutations of almost every outdoor activity imaginable. Though you cant surf ocean waves, locals can be found surfing waves of the Roaring Fork River in their kayaks.
