2022 aspen motherlode


Get ready for Labor Day Weekend in Aspen!

LetsGO Volleyball took over the Motherlode in 2021 with an eye towards the future.  We've upgraded equipment, added new divisions and built in lots of amenities you're sure to enjoy.

For 2022 we keep the mojo going with even more updates to Aspen's long running Pro-Am volleyball tournament.  New sponsors and event updates meet long standing traditions in the most iconic ski towns on the planet!

We're glad to return to our roots in Wagner Park for 2022.

It started as a barbecue in 1972.  Now in its 49th year, The Motherlode is one of the oldest outdoor pro/am volleyball tournaments in the country.

Players come from across the country to play volleyball in the most Aspen.  Aspen's parks are filled with volleyball nets as players compete for cash, prizes and a chance to get their name on the courts at Koch Lumber park.  Players renew friendships and explore Aspen's restaurants, retail and nightlife.



                     Colorado ski towns are in high demand.
                             BOOK LODGING EARLY!!!
