When you’re the type of person that loves to stick to fun holiday traditions, finding a way to spice those traditions up with travel is bound to be inspiring! This Halloween, if you’re looking to costume up and head somewhere exciting and new, be sure to set your sights on Snowmass, Colorado. Close to neighboring Aspen, Snowmass is a scenic and exciting mountain destination that calls to travelers from near and far each year. While summer in Snowmass is a delight thanks to the alpine trails, tantalizing terrain and shopping and dining experiences too, an October visit this direction is a great time to avoid the crowds while still enjoying the holiday fun in abundance. Whether you’re one for the great outdoors or prefer to settle in and savor it all from a coffee shop, there’s no shortage of opportunities for you in Snowmass this Halloween in Colorado. The following are just a few ideas to get that holiday itinerary underway with plenty to check off as you go!
Spend Time Shopping in Snowmass Village
For the Halloween traveler to Snowmass who is looking to get into the spirit and simultaneously make the most of shopping, heading to central Snowmass Village promises to be just the right decision. This hub of commerce and charm is a great place to hop between boutique and big-name shops at your leisure. During Halloween it’s common to see this vibrant area decked out in Halloween flair and you might be lucky enough to have someone hand out candy at one of the stores if you’re traveling through with little ones. Whether you’re on the hunt for just the right souvenir, are looking to boost your apparel or are in the mood to window shop your way through the day, you’ll find everything you’re looking for and likely a lot more when you head this direction.
Take Time to Enjoy Hiking the Mountain Trails
While many of the ski slopes that make Snowmass infamous open to the public starting in November, a Halloween getaway here gives visitors a chance to enjoy a less crowded time on the mountain trails—taking it all in at the pace they prefer. You’ll want to bundle up and bring your binoculars and camera because chances are, your October mountain hike is going to provide some wildlife spotting and amazing views that you’ll want to remember long after you’ve left Snowmass behind. If you find that the snow has arrived early, this Halloween adventure could always be done on snowshoes for a little added fun! This is one of the best things to do for Halloween in Colorado!
Try Town Hall Trick-or-Treating with the Little Ones
Each year, Snowmass Town Hall hosts a trick-or-treating event for children looking for a fun and safe place to gather candy and show off their best costumes. While COVID-19 precautions are still being evaluated, this is an event you’ll want to keep your eye on the calendar for and definitely attend if it’s a go in 2021!
Attend a Halloween-Themed Online Lecture
When there’s a chill in the air, but you’re looking for a Halloween scare, attending an online Halloween-themed lecture from the comfort of your Snowmass vacation rental is a unique and fun idea! Tune into Roger Clark’s “The Natural History of Ghosts” Lecture on October 11th when you have a hankering to learn more about the paranormal this time of year. Be sure to book your place early as this is an online event that promises to fill up fast!
