Our Nordic Trail System began almost 30 years ago with a few volunteers setting tracks with a snowmobile on the Aspen Golf Course. Thanks to years of vision, effort, and collaboration, today, our system offers 60 miles of FREE cross country skiing for the enjoyment by our residents and visitors. 

Come explore the trails. Pack a lunch and ski from town to town. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Learn more at
