“A fantastic experience away from the normal Aspen Scene”
Review of Smuggler Mine Tour

Smuggler Mine Tour
Ranked #9 of 21 Tours in Aspen
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 February 2012

We did the Smuggler Mine tour on February 19, 2012. The cost is $30 per person. You meet at the Smuggler mine . Follow the signs for the Mine Tour. You sign a release, get a helmet, and enter a silver mine from Aspen's silver age. The mine is temperate and dry. The spaces are pretty open, although you have to crouch in a few places. You learn about how the tunnels were made, the miners worked, and the geology of the area.

My wife and I went on the Smuggler Mine Tour in October 2011. This is a silver mine that has been in operation for 100+ years. It is currently in "maintenance mode" so there are just a few people working there. The mine foreman Jay has been working there since the 70s and is a wealth of information. You don a hard hat and walk into the mine. It is well lit and you see several larger caverns. It is a great education and would definitely be fun for kids. Minimum group size is 4, but my wife and I called and just went with another group that was already going.
