ATW picks for how to spend New Year’s Eve and more in Aspen and Snowmass
Our picks for the best events in Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley, Dec. 30-Jan. 5
Some things are getting back to our version of normal as we toast the end of 2021. Aspen will host its traditional fireworks over Aspen Mountain on Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. (no midnight fireworks this year). And Wagner Park will be home to the traditional community party, bonfire, music and all.
If you can get in, there are two prime concerts in Aspen this New Year’s Eve. At Belly Up, it’s Diplo headlining what promises to be an exuberant EDM show. At the W Aspen, it’s the duo The Knocks leading their own dance party. Both shows are sold out, so you’ll need to work your magic on your friendly local ticket brokers or concierges to get inside. bellyupaspen; marriott.com
The annual Ajax Cup runs at the base of Aspen Mountain on Dec. 30, putting six pairs of celebrity skiers head-to-head to win the Gorsuch Cup and raise funds for the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club. audiajaxcup.com
