“A hot pool experience not to miss!”

Glenwood Hot Springs Pool

Attraction details
Owner description: Located between Aspen and Vail, you'll find the World's Largest Hot Springs Pool. The Ute Indians called it Yampah, meaning "big medicine." Soothe your muscles after outdoor activities year round. The large pool is kept at a comfortable 90°- 93° F and the smaller therapy pool averages about 104° F. Additional amenities include a lodge, spa, athletic club, grill and shopping. Relieve muscle and joint pain, or just relax and feel the wonder of a soak in our hot springs. Soaking in hot, highly concentrated mineral water has many health benefits. Increasing body temperature helps the body naturally kill harmful germs and viruses, eliminate toxins, and increase blood flow. The absorbtion of essential minerals gives the body a natural boost. You will feel the difference within minutes of stepping in. Jump in the large pool, at over 400 feet long, and "cool down." Swim laps or practice your form on the diving board. Water slides, mini golf, and kiddie pool are available in the warmer months. Bring your own cooler and snacks, or stop by the poolside Grill to grab a bite.

“A hot pool experience not to miss!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Love the Hot Pool, bring quarters for the bubble chairs in the hot pool. Love shower shoes/or water type sandals for the decks. Bring a lunch for the lawn or buy it there. Love the two waterslides also. Great showers for after! Parking is tight on a hot sunny day.

“Great place to visit!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

The Hot Spings pool is fabulous. My husband & I had walked all over Glenwood the day before and we were hurting! We went into the Springs and it was marvelous! We were not sore after we left there, thats for sure! The pools are both very big and it was very relaxing. the cost was good too.

“Fabulous Hot springs”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

This is a favorite destination if you are a hot springs fan. The crosscountry train stop is walking distance from hotels and the pools. The pools range from hot to cooler and deeper for a true swim. The shallow hot pool has water bubbling lounges for a quarter, and a very nice restaurant poolside. With a the day pass stamp provided you can leave and re enter all day. We love this place and never drive by without planning a dip.

“Loosen Up after a Day of Skiing”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

After a day on the slopes -- probably using muscles that you may not normally use -- treat yourself to a soak in the biggest outdoor hot-tub that you have ever seen! There are multiple pools with successively lower temperatures; so if the main pool is a bit too warm, you can surely find one that's suitable. If you're there late afternoon, keep track of how long you're in the sun. A winter sunburn is entirely possible! My favorite time to go is at night -- when it's snowing. Relaxing in a mineral spa while the snowflakes drift into the rising steam is a memorable sight.

Dear winter patron,
We are so delighted you had an opportunity to discover how enchanting our Glenwood Hot Springs can be. You are absolutely right; it’s the perfect way to end a ski day! We hope you are able to return again this winter, to enjoy the warm mineral waters, snowflakes, and rising steam here at the world’s largest outdoor hot springs.

“Didn't care for it”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

This place touts itself as one of the top attraction destinations in America. Our family has been to Ouray Hot Springs multiple times and loved it so when we were in the area we decided we had to see this place. The cost was 13.75 for adults and around 11 for our son. When we drove up to the pool you could definately smell it - rotten eggs. As I commented about how it smelled strong, my son said he didn't care if the pool smelled like farts, he still wanted to go swimming! There is a large hotter pool that is around 104 degrees and an enormous cooler pool which really feels like a warm bath and not as hot as I would have liked it be. The clientele appears to have just walked over from what I think is a nearby retirement community/home. A lot of swimmers using the pool for therapy combined with moms and their small children. We tolerated the water for about an hour but only because our of our son. The water didn't prove theraputic for me, it actually made my skin ich - gross. This pool is definately an aquired taste.
