Autumn is one of Aspen Snowmass' least busy seasons, meaning popular attractions will be free of big crowds. Plus, you're more likely to spot wildlife while enjoying the area's seemingly endless bike paths, hiking trails and fishing spots.
Fall makes it easy to find dining deals in downtown Aspen and Snowmass Village. Many bars and restaurants have off-season specials on the same gourmet fare served during peak season.
