More than a glamorous skiing destination, this mountain town offers year-round fun.

One of the poshest high-alpine towns in the country, Aspen, Colorado, serves up world-class skiing — but there’s plenty to do off the mountain as well. From the vibrant arts scene and luxurious spas to the high-octane nightlife and a renowned food and wine culture, travelers can enjoy themselves without ever riding a lift. Plus, the four seasons all offer their own distinctive charm: In the springtime, the hiking trails are lined with wildflowers. Summer ushers in fabulous festivals, live music and hot air balloons. Come fall, the leaves in the Roaring Fork Valley turn a lovely golden hue. And winter, of course, is for hitting the slopes.
