Colorado is a breathtaking place with expansive mountains and picturesque landscapes throughout the state. Pet parents will find themselves particularly drawn to the friendliness of Aspen and the many activities available to both two- and four-legged visitors! Whether you are looking to make a permanent move or you're simply visiting, Aspen has plenty of comfy accommodations available. Stay at the Limelight Hotel with Spot for a small fee, or look at some of the other accommodations in the city that welcome dogs.
For everyday needs and supplies, you can check out one of the many locally-owned pet shops, like Rocky Mountain Pet Shop! Begging for a quick bite? Don’t leave your precious pooch at home! Bring them with you to one of Aspen’s many pet-friendly eateries. You can continue the adventure by exploring one of dozens of trails nearby – like the 1.5-mile-long River Run Trail just outside of Aspen.
Naturally, the high altitude of Aspen makes for a great winter wonderland, with plenty of trails that can be explored with proper equipment. But that doesn’t mean you have to leave your furry friends behind! Try Skijoring lessons, a fun Norwegian winter sport that combines sledding with skiing for a fun family activity you’ll both enjoy.
