Bike Snowmass in fall color, Aspen mountain biking

While its true that Maroon Bells has already been dusted with snow — and as a result, everyone is fired up for ski season — there is still a full month left to ride the singletrack and freeride trails at Bike Snowmass. Earlier this summer, we made a little movie on what its like to ride this mountain’s varied terrain (check it out below).

Throughout September, the Elk Camp Gondola and Elk Camp Lift will remain open on weekends through October 5. Come on up and ride through the aspens as they start their annual transition from green to gold, and while you’re at it, grab lunch at the Elk Camp Restaurant, or enjoy any of the free on-mountain activities that go along with your lift ticket.

The Silver Queen Gondola on Aspen Mountain will also continue to run on weekends through October 5, giving you access to the Sundeck restaurant, hiking trails, disc golf, the climbing wall and other kid-friendly activities, and best of all: that view.

Head to our website to buy your lift tickets for September.
