Today, Basalt is known as a vacation mecca for families and sports enthusiasts. Located between Glenwood Springs and Aspen, world-class skiing and cultural opportunities are only minutes away. Amid the myriad of activities, Basalt still preserves its’ original, quaint charm.
This fishing paradise sits at the confluence of two Gold Medal rivers, the Frying Pan River and the Roaring Fork River, which appropriately roar out of the Sawatch Range east of Aspen. The Roaring Fork’s waters slow considerably as they reach Basalt, entering town with a pleasant gurgle. Look for serious whitewater rafting and kayaking from west of Aspen to Basalt, while leisurely float trips drift down the 12-mile lower part of the Roaring Fork, from Basalt to Carbondale. Ruedi Reservoir offers the most beautiful setting for windsurfing, sailing and skiing. Nearby White River National Forest, which blankets Basalt on both sides, is ideal for fishing or hiking. There is also very hospitable lodging right in town within walking distance to great shopping and dining. More than 20 restaurants and countless boutiques and specialty stores complete the serene scene.
