Sledding and skating all in one spot!? Sounds too good to be true, huh? The Aspen Recreation Center’s Winter Wonderland features all these great outdoor activities that are perfect for après ski or just an afternoon family outing. Take a ride on the “Whoa Nelly” Sledding Hill. Grab your friends and hang on to your hats! See who can race down the hill first – winner gets his or her sled carried back up the hill by the other racers! Whether you have fresh new snow or are sledding down the dips and jumps created by other sledders, you’re going to have fun. Bring your own equipment and sled for FREE! Otherwise, rent a sled from us for only $5. After you have finished your ride down the sledding hill, strap on your skates and try out the new outdoor skating rink– the ARC-tic Pond. During dusk the lights turn on and the twinkling trees help give it that magical, nighttime ambiance. As soon as we can get the Ice Pond Open (colder temperatures required) – “Skate Under the Lights” – The ARC-tic Skating Pond is open until 9:00pm (Monday – Friday), until 8:00pm (Saturday), and until 6:00pm (Sunday).
