Glenwood Springs, Colorado: Small Town in the Rockies with Hot Springs near Skiing
Located about 160 miles west of Denver, Glenwood Springs is surrounded by the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and lots of outdoor fun. Rand McNally and USA Today named it the Most Fun Town in America in 2011 because there’s almost always something to do here. Sunlight Mountain Resort has 67 trails spread over 800 skiable acres with nice powder. Several of Colorado’s most popular ski resorts, including Aspen and Vail, are less than an hour away. When the weather's warm, golfing, hiking, and whitewater rafting are all within easy reach,
The area’s geothermal attractions are its bread and butter, particularly the Glenwood Hot Springs pool. More than 3 million gallons of hot water flow through the pool every day, making it the world’s largest swimming pool of its kind. The same waters run through the Yampah Spa and Vapor Caves, creating a mineral-enriched steam in the humid subterranean chambers. Visitors can descend into these caves to breathe in the healing vapors, which have a high concentration of sulfate, nitrate, zinc, and potassium.
