Basalt and Aspen Colorado

The Aspenalt Lodge is in Basalt Colorado, located at the center of the Roaring Fork Valley where the Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers meet.

Aspen and Snowmass are located 16 miles away at one end of the valley with its famous skiing resort areas. Glenwood Springs, 22 miles away, lies at the other end of the valley with its renowned hot mineral baths and the world's largest naturally heated outdoor swimming pool.

Basalt is surrounded by the best Gold Medal fishing streams in the country. Thirteen miles up the Frying Pan River lies the Ruedi Reservoir which is used by fishing, boating, sailing, and windsurfing enthusiasts.

Hunters select Basalt as a starting point since the town is surrounded by the White River National Forest where elk, deer, and small game are plentiful.

With all of nature's beauty and excitement, you won't want to miss the chance to stay with us at the Aspenalt Lodge!
