Augusta Airport Guide

Aspen is a great year round destination. Despite its peak season being in the depths of winter when America’s rich and famous come to ski, in summer there is still the great outdoors to be enjoyed. Popular destinations are the John Denver Park, created in memory of him where many of the lyrics of his songs are etched into the rocks. It’s a very beautiful and peaceful setting. Take a trip with a guide up to the rock formation called Maroon Bells. The scenery is beautiful and with an experienced guide you can climb to the top. Finally, if you’ve hired a car, in summer you can drive through Independence Pas up to where the Continental Divide passes through Colorado, passing some of the most dramatic scenery in America.

Augusta Info

Aspen began life as a mining community but it almost didn’t happen. A group of prospectors were advised to move out of the area because of impending Indian attacks but stayed and struck a silver lode. From then the town prospered until the depression. After the Second World War the prospect of skiing was realised with the development of resort facilities in the town and because of the skiing it is today, the most expensive place to live in America.

Aspen Trivia:
  • Aspen began life as a mining town in the Colorado mining boom of the 19th century
  • It’s now a major upmarket ski resort
  • It was so named because most of the trees in the region are Aspens
  • The town has the highest property prices in the US
