Aspen Mountain Ski Resort

Aspen dates back to the era of the silver mines of the late 1800's. In 1893 (the height of the silver rush) a 1,840-pound, 93-percent pure silver nugget was pulled from the nearby Smuggler Mine. Afterwards many area towns suffered an economic collapse. Several prominent ghost towns can be found nearby.

In the late 1930's a simple ski area was built and the town started to come back to life as a tourism destination.

The restored 1889 Wheeler Opera House presents operas, dramas, concerts and dance throughout the year.
