Our valley has a small town feel with big city amenities surrounded by pristine wilderness and the world class ski resorts of Aspen, Snowmass, Buttermilk and Aspen Highlands. Aspen is 40 miles away and single family homes begin at $1M. As you head down-valley through Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs and New Castle, the prices drop significantly, with single family homes in Glenwood Springs starting at around $400,000 and $300,000 in New Castle.
Nothing needs to be said about the skiing, but as local residents will tell you, there is so much more; world class fly fishing on the Colorado, Roaring Fork, Crystal and Frying Pan Rivers. Enjoy Incredible mountain biking on trails like the Scout Trail above the Glenwood Canyon or the Ridge Trail above Snowmass Village. Hike to your heart's content (if not your lungs!) on trails like West Maroon Creek above Aspen and Hanging Lake in the Glenwood Canyon. The Roaring Fork Valley has a rich selection of both public and private golf courses designed by renowned architects such as Jack Nicklaus, Jim Engh and Jay Morrish.
If it's relaxation you are looking for, the World's largest natural Hot Springs in Glenwood or the Yampa Spa will fit the bill. With over 300 days of sunshine a year and almost no humidity we get to enjoy evening sunsets on the deck (with no screened in porches!) and the words "mostly cloudy" and "overcast" are practically unknown.
A cornucopia of cultural events brings in luminaries from around the world whether it be presidents and nobel laureates at the Aspen Institute, leading classical musicians at the Aspen Music Festival, top athletes at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge , World Cup ski races and the Winter X Games at Buttermilk , or world-renowned musicians at venues like the Belly Up in Aspen, PAC3 in Carbondale or Jazz Aspen Snowmass.
Unlike some other more isolated mountain towns, here you are close to the everyday stores like Target, Lowes and Whole Foods. Our nationally ranked hospitals (Valley View in Glenwood Springs) not surprisingly attract some of the top physicians in the country. Educational opportunities abound through the many campuses of Colorado Mountain College up and down the valley. As well as Associate's and Bachelor's degree offerings the classes are open to area residents.
