Outdoor, Sport activities in Central Mountain Region
Based in the Aspen Highlands ski area, this place does bike tours and rentals, but is most notable for its adventurous itineraries, including some stellar mountain-climbing and rock-climbing trips in the spring and summer, and hut to hut cross-country and backcountry downhill ski trips and ice climbing in the winter. It also runs level one and two avalanche courses. A unique Aspen outfitter, to be sure.
A popular Snowmass-based outfitter that will get you in white water, in the back of a jeep, on a high-altitude ridge at sunset, in a balloon basket at dawn and waist deep in a trout stream anytime you want. It's based in the upper mall (main mall), and consistently gets rave reviews, most notably for the white-water rafting trips on the nearby Arkansas River.
