Holidays Are Here: What to Do in Aspen Snowmass

Activities, Aspen Events, Events, Snowmass Events

The holiday season is upon us! During this magical time of year, holiday-revelers the world over visit Aspen Snowmass to enjoy the holidays with loved ones.

This international appeal is warranted, as Travel + Leisure recently named Aspen the #1 town in America to spend the holidays.

So, what makes this mountain destination so special?

Well, Aspen Snowmass knows how to spread holiday cheer like nowhere else. Buildings, lampposts, windows, and trees are festooned with sparkling, festive decorations; Santa Claus and his friendly reindeer are available for a visit; carolers sing holiday standards; and the New Year’s Eve celebrations feature two fireworks shows—an early, family-friendly show and a second show at the stroke of midnight.

Aspen hosts the 12 Days of Aspen from December 20 - 31, 2015. This year’s schedule is packed with holiday events for everyone.

Children can tell Santa their Christmas wishes, decorate cookies, and listen to favorite holiday tales. Adults can join in the seasonal fun by sipping on this year’s 12 Days of Aspen signature cocktail. The mature crowd can also catch comedy shows and critically-acclaimed films being shown at Aspen Film’s Academy Screenings.
