Iron Mountain Hot Springs Wintertime Soak

Iron Mountain Hot Springs Wintertime Soak

Winter is one of the best seasons to visit Iron Mountain Hot Springs in nearby Glenwood Springs. Just a short drive from Aspen, take a break from the slopes and spend the day poolside soaking in the healing mineral waters.

This winter wiggle into your swimsuit and head to the pool – or rather pools in the case of Iron Mountain Hot Springs. In addition to a family pool with an elevated jetted spa, there are 16 mineral-rich soaking pools, varying in temperature from 98° to 108°F. Wearing next to nothing outdoors when the mercury plummets might seem counter-intuitive, but the benefits of a winter dip far outweigh the short distance from the bathhouse to the soaking pool of your choice.

Here are a few reasons we recommend giving winter soaking at Iron Mountain Hot Springs a try:

  1. Off-season rates. Admission prices drop during the off-season which is from Nov. through mid-May. Instead of $25, winter rates are just $20 for adults to enjoy the springs all day from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Lower rates also apply to kids’ admission and off-season passes.
  2. Sunny days. Even though it might be frigid, it’s highly likely the sun will be shining in a bright blue sky. Colorado is famous for its 300 days of sunshine and by exposing some skin, you can get a healthy dose of Vitamin D while you soak.
  3. Fewer people. Relax in relative solitude. Did we mention it’s off-season? With few exceptions Iron Mountain Hot Springs is delightfully quiet this time of year.
  4. Heated walkways. We promise your tootsies won’t get frostbite while you hop from pool to pool. Our walkways are heated to prevent snow from sticking and ice from forming. For an added layer of protection against the elements bring along a cozy robe and sandals from home. Hang your robe on the towel holders located near each pool for easy accessibility.
  5. Mineral goodness. The geothermal springs at Iron Mountain contain 14 dissolved minerals, all of which have health and healing benefits. You can learn more about them here, or just immerse yourself in the water and know you’re giving your whole body a wellness treat.
  6. Après anything. After skiing or after dinner, nothing beats a soothing soak before bedtime. Enjoy a pre-made cocktail, responsibly of course, from the Sopris Café and watch the winter sky or see the moonrise from the comfort of your favorite soaking pool. By the end of the evening, your body will be warm, relaxed and ready for a good night’s sleep.

To chase the chills away, visit Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs.

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
