Aspen's little known treasure is the free Aspen Snowmass Nordic Council XC trail system. Their dedication has created and maintained a free cross-country ski trail system that rivals anything else in the United States. 60km of trails stretch between Aspen and Snowmass Village will numerous satellite trails on the outskirts of town. With funding from the City of Aspen and Pitkin County the trail system has expanded another 20 miles to the town of Basalt on the Rio Grande Trail. An additional 30km of trails are offered at the Ashcroft Ski Touring Center located 11 miles up Castle Creek Road. Ashcroft also offers nightly ski and sleigh rides to the Pine Creek Cookhouse for dinner.
