What is Aspen Snowmass, without the snow? Bike Snowmass. The Elk Camp Gondola and chairlift will begin daily operations offering visitors access to their numerous biking and hiking trails. This new component of Aspen will feature new downhill biking trails from family-friendly beginners to intermediate and advanced levels, as well as the new Valhalla trail from Gravity Logic. By the time you get through these trails, you’ll be glad of the lack of snow.
