A Week in Snowmass Village
Summer is in full swing in Aspen Snowmass. If you’re looking for a full week, jam-packed with activities for the whole family in Snowmass Village— this one’s for you! Read on for a rocking Snowmass schedule for your weeknights.
Monday: Take the Elk Camp Gondola up to the Lost Forest for a full day of adventuring the ropes course, Alpine Coaster, rock climbing wall, disc golf, hiking trails, and mountain bike park. Fuel up at the Elk Camp Restaurant with tasty treats and delicious meals. The gondola runs daily from 10am to 5pm. Elk Camp Restaurant is open from 10:45am to 3pm.

Tuesday nights at Elk Camp include Farm to Table Dinners and Bonus Bike Night, which features racing the Snowmass Mountain Bike Park, as well as all of the other one mountain activities.

Wednesday: The middle of the week is of course reserved for the Snowmass Rodeo. This is one of the longest running rodeos in the state of Colorado at almost 50 summer seasons! On summer Wednesdays, the appropriately named Rodeo lot becomes packed with Western flair. The gates open at 5pm, and the rodeo begins at 7pm. There’s kids activities, a cash bar, food, and even a bonfire, complete with marshmallow roasting, at the end of the night. For tickets, head over to snowmassrodeo.org. This season’s last rodeo is Wednesday, August 18th.
Thursday: Kick off the almost weekend with free live music on Fanny Hill! This longstanding Snowmass tradition (29 years in the making!) is back after last summer’s hiatus. Bring the family, friends, a blanket, some chairs, and a picnic dinner for a guaranteed good time. A few friendly reminders: no dogs, doors open at 5:30pm, and no outside alcohol.
