Having a snowball fight is illegal in Aspen, Colorado, because the act is a violation of a local anti-missile law. In the city, throwing any object or discharging a weapon at public buildings, at private property or at another person is an infraction that typically comes with a fine as punishment. Snowball fights on private property are generally not cause for issues. In some cases, however, the throwing of snowballs that are made of a significant amount of ice has been treated as assault or harassment and has come with criminal charges.
