STAY: Off the beaten path, appreciate the beauty of falling snow at Clear Water Cabins.
PLAY: Explore Aspen Snowmass, and if you are up for the challenge, try out the Cirque or Hanging Valley at Snowmass or hike the Highlands Bowl at Aspen Highlands. The mountains are simply a bus ride away. When you get back to Basalt, treat yourself to a massage, salt yoga, or unique float therapy at Fahrenheit Body Spas. Really relax at Iron Mountain Hot Springs, just a short drive away in Glenwood Springs. Sixteen soaking pools await, with temperatures ranging from 98 to 108 degrees, allowing for a progressive soak experience.
EAT: Get an early start to the slopes by walking to Cassie’s Corner Store for coffee and some treats before making your way to the RFTA bus stop to head to the mountains. Another option is The Biscuit, a food truck, located in El Jebel, and serving until 11 a.m. Après midvalley at Woody Creek Distillers with its rotating menu of seasonal cocktails. Tours are offered by appointment.
