Insider’s Guide 2014: 25 Reasons to Go to Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass

Wanderlust Aspen-Snowmass takes place more than a mile and half above sea level in the Rocky Mountains, a perfectly breathtaking location to kick off July. We’ve combed our scheduler and compiled a list of 25 staff picks.

Here's a look at the top five.

1) Six Hours of Music

What’s better than a festive 4th? One more night to celebrate! Join us on July 5 for non-stop funk and freestyle jams. Our first concert features Nahko and Medicine for the People, MC Yogi and Jurassic 5, while our second features Tycho. Want a preview? We made a playlist.

2) Get Your Fourth of July On

On Friday night, we’re bussing the whole community down to Aspen for an incredible fireworks display — maybe we can get a rolling om going in the midst of the typical “oohs” and “aahs?”

3) Run With a View

We have scenic trail runs for all levels on our schedule, but if you’re looking for a real lung buster with epic vistas to match, check out the run up to Ute Rock.

4) Take an Ayurveda Workshop

Discover how you can find your state of balance with the 5,000-year-old philosophy and practice of Ayurveda with Pamela Quinn.

5) Be Part of a Bollywood Flash Mob

Yes, this is happening. And you can be a part of it, along with DJ Drez and Hemalayaa Behl.
