Aspen is a renowned ski resort, a historic mining town, a relaxing mountain retreat and a cultural hot spot with its art galleries and glittering stars who vacation here. The town began as a remote mining camp in 1879 and became one of the richest silver producing areas in the world until the silver market crashed in 1893. In the Roaring Fork Valley, Aspen offers a winter wonderland for all outdoor enthusiasts and in summer hosts a music festival, theater, ballets and other entertaining events. Fishing spots, hiking and mountain biking trails abound on public forest lands near this mountain town. The Maroon Bells is said to be one of the most photographed peaks in North America and is a must-see. Down the road in the Crystal River Valley is towering Mount Sopris. Its peak reaches 12,953', and dominates the vista of the charming town of Carbondale. Formerly the only stagecoach stop on the 40-mile run to Aspen, Carbondale takes pride in its specialty shops, local arts and crafts and fine restaurants. Pick from one of many nearby mountain bike trails, fish the Roaring Fork River for its large trout or enjoy the scenery on the Crystal River.
