For those that have a bit more time on their hands, the Aspen area is home to several fantastic campsites. Each offers a unique perspective of the surrounding region, with mountains streams and creeks a common fixture.

Depending on your reasons for visiting Aspen, Colorado, the weather is really accommodating year round. Obviously, skiers will find the below freezing temperatures and snowy conditions in the winter appealing, while those who want to camp will appreciate typical highs in the mid 70s and lows in the 40s that are found in the summer. Snow is plentiful in the winter, but not so much that it hampers individuals getting from place to place at will. The summer is beautiful with afternoon rain showers possible, but otherwise sunny conditions prevail.
