    Aspen’s mountain magic

    The Colorado Silver Boom saw the birth of Aspen as a successful mining camp, yet it was half a century before the city we now know began to take shape, when the development of Aspen Mountain as a luxury ski resort gave this winter wonderland a new lease of life. The area has long been a favorite with A-list celebrities and the jet set, but nowadays, Aspen vacation rentals make it easy for everyone to get a taste of the glamour. You can choose between cozy chalets, rustic cabins, elegant condos, and well-adorned villas, all of which place you at the center of the action.

    Aspen’s climate explained

    Winter in Aspen is characterized by warm sun and heavy snowfall on the mountains, making it the ideal time for skiing. As such, Aspen vacation rentals near Snowmass are in high demand and availability is limited. The summer months are warm and dry, with daytime highs of up to 90°F, great for sightseeing and exploring. Afternoon showers are common, however, so a raincoat is a must. Fall conditions are wonderful for travelers. Snow is common on the peaks, so winter sports are still a possibility, and the moderate temperatures keep the chill at bay. The end of September and beginning of October also promise dazzling autumnal foliage.
