June 17–19 and June 24–26 Aspen Hiking and Tasting Tour
Brought to you by Whole Foods’ new travel company, Whole Journeys, this three-day tour lets foodies earn their treats (like tastings at Woody Creek Distillers and Avalanche Cheese Creamery, trail lunches made with Whole Foods products, and barbecue dinners) with guided hikes led by Aspen Alpine Guides.
June 19–22 Telluride Bluegrass Festival
Now in its 41st year, this finger-pickin’-good festival returns to beautiful Telluride with performances from Peter Rowan, Béla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Edgar Meyer, Tim O’Brien, and Sam Bush.
Glenwood Cavern Amusement Park in Glenwood Springs adds a new thrill this summer with the Glenwood Canyon Flyer. Perched on the edge of the canyon, the Flyer swings riders 1,400-feet above the Colorado River.
The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs just finished $100 million in renovations that include two new restaurants—Ristorante Del Lago and Natural Epicurean—and 31 new guest rooms.
Breckenridge adds lift-assisted hiking and mountain biking (or just scenic chair rides for the less endorphin-obsessed) on Peak 7 this summer, via the Independence SuperChair.
