About Aspen

The Roaring Fork Valley - and Aspen, its crown jewel - is the quintessential Colorado Rocky Mountain High. A rampart of the state's famed Fourteeners (peaks over 14,000 feet) guard this valley. There are only two ways in or out: over the precipitous Independence Pass or up the four-lane highway through the booming Roaring Fork Valley that stretches nearly 50 mi, from Glenwood Springs to Aspen.
