Some of the best skiing in Colorado is located in the vicinity of Glenwood Springs. In fact, seven ski areas are all within about an hour’s drive, give or take a couple of minutes. We’re partial to nearby Sunlight Mountain Resort for their fairly-priced lift tickets, welcoming staff and the all-around family-friendly vibe, but you can also easily ski at resorts from Aspen to Vail. Choose your destination, ski and snowboard all-day, and then head back to Glenwood for hot springs après ski options.
1. Sunlight Mountain Resort: 24 minutes/12.36 miles
2. Buttermilk: 48 minutes/38.12 miles
3. Snowmass: 51 minutes/39.53 miles
4. Highlands: 53 minutes/40.88 miles
5. Beaver Creek: 53 minutes/51.91 miles
6. Aspen Mountain: 55 minutes/41.15 miles
7. Vail: 62 minutes/61.20 miles
In addition to nearby skiing, one of the best perks of staying in Glenwood Springs is its hot springs amenities, the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and the Yampah Spa and Vapor Caves. After a day on the slopes nothing beats soaking in the world’s largest mineral hot springs pool or experiencing a natural steam bath in underground caverns, much like the Native Americans once enjoyed.
Thanks to the recent snowfall, the slopes around Glenwood Springs are covered with fresh, fluffy accumulations. By the looks of it, March is shaping up to be the best ski month of the 2015 season, and just in time for spring break!
One last, great reason to stay in Glenwood Springs during your ski holiday is because lodging here is significantly less expensive than in other resort towns. See for yourself, visit www.visitglenwood.com for more information about skiing, lodging and activities.
