Naturally, if you're in Aspen, you're going to want to tear up the slopes on one of the area's four legendary peaks. But if sliding down the mountain on a waxed up piece of carbon fibre isn't your style, don't miss the opportunity to experience Aspen;s stunning landscape via snowmobile. Western Adventures is the premier winter sports tour operator in Aspen, having led breathtaking snowmobile tours of the high country for celebrities like Mariah Carey to President Bill Clinton to 50 Cent and everyone in between. Fortunately for us, Western Adventures caters to everyone with their private and group tours. Snowmobiling in Aspen requires no prior experience or athletic ability (phew) - all you need to bring is your need for speed. Upon arriving at the Western Adventures meeting point, you will be whisked away via Suburban on a scenic drive up to higher elevation. At the second meeting point, you'll be assigned your very own Audi S4 snowmobile. From there, you'l experience a positively exhilarating two or three-hour tour of the area's most magnificent peaks. Don't forget your camera – there are major photo ops to be had along the way. Lunch is provided on two and three hour tours, which includes sandwiches with all the fixins with hot cocoa.Oh, if you are offered hand warmers (you will be) take them. Ask nicely, and they'll give you an extra set for your toes too.
TIP: Be sure to request Hyram as your tour guide. Not only does he know the Aspen highlands like the back of his hand, he will also dig your snowmobile out of 10 inches of powder (ok, so it's not like riding a bicycle) and treat you to memorable one-liners such as "Oh my scrud!" Trust us. He's awesome.
