How long does the winter season really last in Aspen ? The possible last snowfall......and how many days of sunshine do you typically see there ?
They will be skiing through the end of March and there is a possibility of snow in June (although unlikely.) Independence pass usually opens around Memorial Day which generally marks the beginning of summer. April is called the "mud season" and many places are closed. You can get great deals on hotels and food (half off meals, screaming deals on luxury rooms) but you might miss some of what Aspen has to offer.
