Itinerary

Day 1Arrive in Snowmass Village - Sunset Dinner

We recommend starting this tour Wed-Sunday.
Arrivals throughout the day; we encourage an early arrival with time to provision your condo. Arrive at The Crestwood on your own, check in, and plan to go out tonight on your included Sunset Dinner Tour that leaves at 6:00 pm. An evening of Colorado mountain fun includes a four-wheel Jeep tour up Snowmass Mountain, and a hearty BBQ dinner in one of the area’s most scenic settings and with spectacular sunsets. Add great live music around a roaring campfire, complete with s’mores and starry skies. Dinner includes water, lemonade & soft drinks-you are welcome to bring your own beer or wine. This is our “get away from it all” experience that you do not want to miss, as it will provide wonderful memories of your visit to the Rockies.

Meals: dinner
Highlights: Sunset Dinner
Overnight: Snowmass Village

Day 2River Rafting Adventure

Breakfast on your own, in your condo or in the village, before the big water day! This rafting trip is on the classic Shoshone Rapids section: the most popular trip on the mighty Colorado that has withstood the test of time. The trip opens with excellent Class III rapids then mellows to Class II as we pass within the majestic walls of beautiful Glenwood Canyon, where we focus on the breathtaking scenery of the canyon and maybe jump in for a swim! Younger children and less adventuresome adults can enter the rafts after the first set of larger rapids. Children must be over 50 lbs and be able to swim. The morning trip departs at 8:00 am and returns by 2:00 pm and includes a BBQ lunch. After returning, you can lounge by the pool or jacuzzi or go for a stroll in the village. If you wish to explore nearby Aspen, there are free shuttles that travel between Snowmass and Aspen frequently.

Meals: lunch
Highlights: Colorado River rafting
Overnight: Snowmass Village

Day 3Bicycle Tour - Maroon Bells Downhill

Today we have our fun and scenic Maroon Bells Downhill Bike Tour. Our tour begins with a short drive to the Maroon Bells and Maroon Lake. Situated in the highly protected Snowmass Wilderness Area, within the White River National Forest, the Maroon Bells are widely considered the most photographed peaks in all of North America. At Maroon Lake there will be time for photographs and to talk about the local wildlife. After everyone has limbered up, you will begin your 12-mile downhill descent on a paved road through the Maroon Valley. Along the way, you are welcome to stop and enjoy the spectacular views, and to photograph one of the most picturesque wilderness areas in Colorado. Your trip finishes in Aspen. We will stop for a refreshing snack along the way. The Maroon Bells road is closed to most vehicular traffic for the majority of the summer and affords a perfect opportunity to enjoy your downhill bike ride. The morning trip departs at 8:15 am and returns by 12:00 pm. The afternoon trip departs at 1:00 pm and returns by 5:00 pm.

Meals: on own
Highlights: Maroon Bells views & bike ride
Overnight: Snowmass Village

Day 4Backcountry Jeep Tour

Today is your Jeep tour day! Your trip starts with a spectacular drive up Aspen Mountain. You will see wonderful views of the town of Aspen from its flagship winter mountain. From there your tour will take you out Richmond Ridge. Along the way, you will pass through the high alpine flora and fauna and see some of the most spectacular views of Colorado’s “fourteeners,” which are peaks that reach a tremendous 14,000+ feet above sea level. Once you reach the top of Taylor Pass you will get to enjoy the scenic overview of Taylor lake. From here the tour takes a rugged decent down Express Creek Road for a short stroll through the historic ghost town of Ashcroft. Such scenery! Finally, you will finish your trip with a spectacular drive down the Castle Creek Valley. Lunch will be served along the way at one of the many charming picnic locations. The trip departs at 8:30 am and returns by 2:00 pm.

We got to experience this trip at the peak of fall colors and it was the best thing we could have done for the kids’ fall break. We loved everything that was planned and also enjoyed hving time to do things on our own. Maroon Bells are fantastic and we did the hike no problem. It was the perfect mix and the kids, 12 & 16, were happy and in awe of their surroundings. We maybe would have added a couple nights in Denver, if we were to do it again but overall, we were really happy with how everything went. The condo fit our family’s needs perfectly. We want to come back next fall!!! Thank you!

Our family did this trip with a group of about ten other families, with kids ranging from toddler to high school. Everything was perfect and there were so many things to do for all ages; we loved having a home base at the on-mountain condo. The mountain weather is amazing and we were all mostly coming from the heat of the desert. The scenery is breathtaking and it truly was a great family experience for us and our two teenagers. They were free to roam around and explore, as it is very safe there, and there were so many things to do. The hiking and rafting were definitely favorites! Overall, family-friendly, un-touristy, exciting activities, safe, beautiful, affordable and highly recommend for families. We will – as will most of the group – come back and we would not hesitate to book another family adventure with Pure Adventures; this trip was spot on! Ecuador is on radar!!!

This was our summer vacation trip with our parents. We had a good time. Rafting was most fun and we went to concerts outside, pool, and just hang out. It was nice to be in the mountains and do different things then at home. We want to go on another trip with this same company next year.
