Where To Watch 4th of July Fireworks In Ski Country

View as Map

'MURICA!! Doesn't it feel good to say it?!? Yes, ma'am. Well, not only can you scream "'Murica!" all the long holiday weekend long, but you can also see exploding balls of colors paint the sky in your favorite ski town right, white, and 'Murican blue. Unfortunately, the extremely dry and wildfire-prone conditions in Aspen, Telluride, and Crested Butte have shut down the fireworks celebrations there, but there's plenty of shows going down elsewhere in ski country tonight, the 4th, and throughout the weekend.
