Hanging Lake This is the last weekend for skiing in Glenwood Springs, Sunlight is offering $40 lift tickets to close out this great ski season. It is definitely spring, snow one day and sunny the next. I love this time of year when the sun feels so good and not hot, so no more ski packages. We still offer our romantic dinner and swim package , and relaxing spa package. Rafting will be open before we know it and great snow means great rafting.

Hanging Lake It is getting warmer and flowers are starting to bloom. Soon it will be hot, so Spring time is a great time to get away to Glenwood Springs. There is still great skiing and it is not as cold. Hiking, biking, fishing, and all the fun summer activities are starting. Check out our Spring Break Special in our deals section.

Fly Fishing The second longest consecutive stretch of gold medal trout fishing in Colorado is the lower Frying Pan and Roaring Fork Rivers 42 miles. It was the longest for many years, but was overtaken by a new 102 mile stretch of the Arkansas River from Leadville to near the Royal Gorge due to many years of restoration. Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout are plentiful even up the Crystal River. Sometimes I wish that I had the patience to fish, but I would rather go rafting. With a great snow season for ski resorts there should be a great rafting season ahead.

Sunlight is having Skier Appreciation Day this Friday with $20 lift tickets. Proceeds go to United Way of Garfield County. They are also having a costume contest for a season pass next year , so wear your best penguin costume. And Sunday is Teacher and Student Appreciation Day so nobody has to ditch school. Students show ID or report card and receive $20 lift ticket. Teachers and staff ski for free. Now that is Appreciation.

Driving on I-70 on the weekends is very congested and somewhat insane. So what to do? Huh? I know call in sick ( take a mental health day). Come up to Glenwood Springs and ski Sunlight and soak in the Hot Springs then decide if you are sane. Not sure? Stay another day and ski Aspen, Vail, or Powderhorn all are only about an hour from Glenwood Springs. Or go to the Glenwood Caverns (where the pool use to be), Vapor Caves (a natural sauna) ,or La Provence Spa and relax with a massage. Ahh , I feel better already!
