We're all about work-life balance and encourage employees to live passionately outside of work as they do at work. These are some activities the locals enjoy:
YOU MIGHT ALSO BE INTERESTED INBetween Glenwood Springs and Aspen, many Aspen Skiing Company employees live in Basalt, El Jebel and Carbondale. Each of these towns have their own personality and services as well as a number of recreation centers. The town of Glenwood Springs is also home to Glenwood Hot Springs, Glenwood Adventure Park and is the biggest town for essential shopping. Between the world class Aspen Art Museum, Wheeler Opera House, numerous concert venues, movie theaters and libraries, you’ll have lots to do off the hills and rivers of the Roaring Fork Valley.
- Winter: Obviously Aspen is a winter playground for skiing and snowboarding at our four mountains, but there is so much more to offer. Cross country skiing, backcountry skiing, ice-skating, snowshoeing, tubing, and more bring people outside. Indoors, Aspen offers world-class art museums, art galleries, restaurants, bars, and ballet, music, and theater performances.
- Shoulder Season and Summer: Hiking and biking are popular as the snow melts. Many employees take time to visit local biking hot-spots, from the western slope playground, Fruita, Colorado, to Moab, Utah. We're surrounded by some pretty incredible mountain biking. Rock climbing is popular and can be found throughout the Roaring Fork Valley and into Utah as well. If rafting and fishing are your thing, then the local rivers are where you want to be. Rafting, kayaking, SUPing, and fly fishing are popular water activities in the area
