It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Aspen

Peak Season: December to March

Naturally, rates are the highest and hotels are packed in winter when Aspen’s shows off its snowy best. Winter temperatures average in the 20s.

Off Season: May to September

Things quiet down considerably when the ski resorts close for the summer. This is a good time to take advantage of pleasant (60-degree) weather and off-season discounts to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and horseback riding.

Sweet Spot: April; November

Spring skiing is still possible in late March through early April and the slopes are just beginning to open in November. Both times see fewer crowds and weather in the 30-degree range.
