Aspen Flights Guide
This small Colorado town was founded by eager miners who soon became lumberjacks. They were defying authorities who were trying to put down a Native American tribeís uprising. The history of the mountainous town is recent for modernity, but the area has been the hunting grounds of natives for ages.
Today Aspen is known above all as one of the premiere ski resort towns not only in Colorado and the United States, but in the entire world. From its days as a lumber and silver mining town, it saw a decline in its population in the beginning of the 20th century before finally finding its niche as a ski destination after WWII. Today the ski hill is the main reason to come in the winter. In the warmer months, John Denver Park is a pleasant green area speckled with boulders and named for the folk singer. Outside of Aspen is the Maroon Bells peak, which is a sheer granite mountain that appears to be combed by geologic time. In the summer one can hike, raft, fly fish, bike, paraglide, visit the mines, etc. In the winter itís skiing, sleighing, snowshoeing and sledding. The brick-building town comes alive and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to accommodate the social night creature after a long day on the slopes.
Aspen-Pitkin Country Airport serves the area. United, American Eagle and Delta all have operations here.
