Lifestyle & Activities
West Aspen is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, offering easy access to all four of Aspen's world-renowned ski areas, especially Highlands and Buttermilk. From ski-in and ski-out residences at Five Trees, Aspen Highlands, Maroon Creek and Eagle Pines to elegant sprawling estates at Double Bar X, West Aspen homes cater to a diverse range of lifestyles. During the summer months, enjoy easy access to the Roaring Fork River at the bottom of Cemetery Lane and take part in world-class fly-fishing, kayaking, and rafting. Maroon Lake at the top of Maroon Creek is another popular spot for outdoor enthusiasts, offering breathtaking views of the iconic Maroon Bells and picturesque hiking trails in White River National Forest and road biking. Ashcroft and Bells are two favorite cycling destinations.
In the winter months, enjoy easy access to Aspen Highlands, a favorite of Aspen's four mountains among local skiers and snowboarders. Homes in the Maroon Creek Valley are ideally located to take advantage of its thrilling slopes. With over 1,000 skiable acres, including the Highlands Bowl, skiers of all levels will find the perfect run to challenge themselves. Buttermilk Mountain is also nearby, offering more forgiving terrain for novice skiers and snowboarders. The X Games Aspen is held annually at Buttermilk and is a major highlight for those seeking a high-energy winter weekend of music and action sports without the hassle of commuting from farther away. Trust us, the less you have to commute for the X Games the better. Did we mention our world-class RFTA bus system or our free community We-Cycle bike-sharing program that we sponsor?
