slide5 Since our last post the seasons have changed, yes we have been that busy. The bike path thru Glenwood Canyon washed out from high runoff and has since reopened with a new bridge. I would like to go on, but I got to go. We have changed our package specials a little so check them out!

Glenwood Farmers' Market  Gift certificates are available for any of our package getaways. Any thing mom is into or to just get time with dad. A romantic dinner and swim package , or a relaxing spa retreat. If it is excitement she wants check out the Cavern Adventure Park with many thrill rides or a raft package on the Colorado River. Call us for more information 1-800-292-5050.

Biking in the fall The bike path thru Glenwood Canyon is open for the season. Unless it has to be closed due to spring runoff in the Colorado River, which is not unusual. You can call 511 from anywhere  in the state or visit for road conditions , including bike path closures. Beautiful weather today temperatures in the 70’s a great day to be outside doing anything , but work.

Rafting We here at the Affordable Inns are once again offering our great rafting package. It includes a half day ( 3 hours ) trip with Whitewater Rafting company, and your choice of 2 dinners or 2 pool passes or both ,and 2 nights lodging. Our friends at Whitewater Rafting are having their 40th anniversary this year and are offering 40% off their short trips that are booked in the fourth month. You can use the trip anytime during the season, but must book and pay in April. They are starting runs on May 1st. The short trip is about 1.5 hours and is a easy trip for beginners.

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.
