Aspen loves dogs so much that they even allow them to ride to the top of Aspen Mountain by gondola during the summer. From there, adventurous pups can hike with their humans back down the mountain.

If you and your dog are skiing enthusiasts, you two will have a blast at Snowmass once the snow starts falling.
