Roaring Fork Valley Area Recreation Description. Backpacks
During the snowy winter months, usually spanning from November through April, downhill skiing and snowboarding are easily the most popular activities in the valley. Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass ski areas are world-class resorts. The smaller Sunlight ski resort, located ten miles outside of Glenwood Springs, offers some excellent terrain as well. While the downhill opportunities are the most popular, the Roaring Fork Valley also offers extensive cross-country skiing trails and varied backcountry terrain.

After the snow melts, the Roaring Fork Valley changes gear and the high country opens to the general public. A wide variety of activities including hiking, mountain biking, cycling, climbing, camping, fishing, rafting, and kayaking are available for visitors and locals to experience. The valleys namesake, the Roaring Fork River, offers excellent opportunities for fishing, rafting and kayaking. Excellent climbing can be found east of Aspen towards Independence Pass. The trail systems for biking and hiking are numerous throughout the valley.
