Almost 7000 ft. below the twin peaks of majestic Mount Sopris, Carbondale sits at the confluence of the Crystal and Roaring Fork Rivers. Just 30 miles from Aspen and 15 miles from Glenwood Springs, Carbondale is an eclectic town bringing together old time ranchers, extreme athletes and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Once known as a “cow town”, Carbondale now boasts nationally renowned restaurants such as "Town" on historic Main St., along with top ranked golf courses designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Jay Morrish (Aspen Glen and River Valley Ranch).
At the center of the Roaring Fork Valley, Carbondale enjoys a surprisingly mild climate with an average of over 300 days of sunshine each year. Its proximity to the world class skiing resorts of Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Snowmass and Buttermilk, as well as the historic towns of Redstone and Marble have led to Carbondale’s steady and continued growth. Little by little, valley floor ranches are making way for planned communities such as Blue Lake, Cerise Ranch, Dakota and of course the golf communities of River Valley Ranch, The Ranch at Roaring Fork, Aspen Glen and Ironbridge.
Annual events such as Potato Days and Mountain Fair help to continue to give Carbondale the feeling of a small town community. With top rated schools including Colorado Rocky Mountain School and Colorado Mountain College, along with award winning hospitals such as Valley View in Glenwood Springs, Carbondale has all the necessary amenities.
