them what events are planned for the time

period that you will be there. Events are usually

scheduled well in advance, and finding out

about these events well in advance will not only

help you to better make your plans, but it will

also allow you to purchase needed tickets in

advance. Nothing will be more disappointing

than arriving in Aspen and finding out that your

favorite band is in town for a sold out show!

Events can come up at the last minute as well.

Upon your arrival to your lodge or hotel, ask the

concierge about events that will be taking place

during your stay. If you have already contacted

the Chamber of Commerce, you will know most

of what is going on around town – but there may

be a few surprises in store for you.

Don’t forget to check with the Chamber of

Commerce offices in nearby towns and villages!

Snowmass is a village that almost seems to

be a part of Aspen – but it isn’t. Contact the

Snowmass town hall to find out what events

are scheduled in the village during your visit.

Have a plan before you arrive in Aspen. Use

Internet resources, as well as the information

that you learn from the various Chambers of

Commerce and your lodge to plan your daytime

and night time activities while you will be in

Aspen. Again, there is always something to do

in Aspen, and if you don’t plan ahead, you will

waste a lot of time trying to decide what you

want to do.

While you want to go in with a plan, leave a

day or two open – with no plans. Use these

days for shopping expeditions or simply take a

quiet walk through the quiet Victorian

neighborhoods. Go to a restaurant that isn’t in

your plans, or spend some time in the Great

Room at your lodge. There is always

something to do…but sometimes, it is nice to

have nothing to do as well!
