Aspen, CO Winter Activities

For the best Aspen sledding experience, you’ll want to start at the Aspen Recreation Center’s Winter Wonderland. This spectacular location brings sledding to the area each year, along with other skating, skiing and snowshoeing opportunities. This spectacular, all in one Aspen winter activities site is conveniently located just 8 minutes from the Hotel Lenado.

You’ll soon find that the main attraction here is the spectacular "Whoa Nelly" sledding hill, which is also the hot spot for winter tubing in Aspen. If you didn’t bring a sled with you on your trip, don’t worry: the Aspen Recreation Center has sled packages for rent. Then you’re in for a fun day of racing, combination runs and any other kind of sledding you can think of.

The Center also rents skates, because their Wonderland now offers a skating pond. Thanks to their outdoor lighting, you can enjoy a late-night skate up to 9PM at night every day of the week. You can also combine economical planning with maximum fun by renting their skates, sledding and/or snowshoe packages at a discount together.

If you’re up for some hockey skating, you should also look up the Aspen Ice Garden’s current schedule: this is a full 85 x 185 foot arena that hosts local hockey teams and figure skaters—as well as drop-in hockey and general stick and puck sessions. The calendar changes week by week, but opportunities for novice skaters throughout the month. Take a look and start planning Aspen winter activities for your visit to Hotel Lenado today!
