Adventure through fir forests and marvel at Aspen’s picturesque views by snowshoeing in the winter. We’ve partnered with Audi to offer our guests complimentary snowshoes and the use of a fully electric Audi e-tron to venture on one of the outings below. To reserve your Audi Snowshoe Experience, please contact the Front Drive at 970.920.6304 or

Purchase a sightseeing ticket for the Silver Queen Gondola from Ski Concierge and explore the backside of Aspen Mountain on this five-mile journey. Bask in gorgeous, rolling terrain, 50-mile views of three mountain ranges, plus plenty of powder. It’s one of our favorite snowshoeing spots for beginners to intermediates.

While this road is closed to cars in the winter, Nordic aficionados ski or snowshoe (snow depth permitting) up Castle Creek road to the Maroon Creek trailhead, and then make their way to Maroon Lake, overlooked by the Maroon Bells. Pack a lunch and bring plenty of water on this 12.4-mile round trip journey.

Venture along 21 miles of groomed trails around the ghost town of Ashcroft, located right outside of Aspen. Following your adventure, enjoy lunch at the famed Pine Creek Cookhouse (reservations required). Please note that Ashcroft is privately owned and fee-based.
