Glenwood Hot Springs Pool
Certificate of Excellence

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 great place to relax for the whole family!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Hot Springs Resort was a very relaxing experience after a long day of driving. I brought my own towel so I didn't have to pay. I recomend going ib the spring because you will experience the rapidly changing weather in the Rockies. Warm one minute, snow storm the next.... all from a very comfortable 114° pool!

“Springs very relaxing...cost extreme”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We've been here multiple times and the hot springs pool is great for taking away aches and pains. It is a must if you have never been. However at $18 per person during peak time or Spring break which it was, for 90 minutes (which is about as long as your body can take) is ridiculous and I think we will find other options when we are there in a couple of months. Some ski resorts are offering a 4-pack at a reasonable price...how about being able to purchase a 4-pack here (or a punch card) with a year for a family to use it...we like it but are not real fond of the cost...no recession here...btw the phone recorded price was the $14 rate but when we got there the price was the $18 rate...

“Swimming in the snow!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The hot springs are definitely worth the trip. Come prepared if going in the cold. A robe is a great idea! The large pool is great for kids and inflatable devices are allowed. The warm pool is great before you head for the locker room. We swam when it was snowing and it was a great experience!

“$47.50 for 3 people for 90 minutes!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

It cost $47.50 for 3 of us to "swim" for 90 minutes --- the perks you get for this? NONE. Lockers .50 cents per use; free towels - NO; spacious clean locker rooms - NO ( crowded, wet, moldy, trash and towels all over, naked bodies all over bc there are only 10 changing rooms); place to set your towel outside - NO ( minimal chairs all hogged up so lay your towel on the pool deck and of course it gets wet).
The hot pool does feel great but you have to wonder how clean the water is -- everything there costs extra --- I'd suggest finding a great hot tub, add a bag of Epsom salts and enjoy it to yourself - and you can treat yourself to a $40 bottle of wine with your savings!!

“A genuine Colorado experience”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Went here while visiting family in Glenwood during March (Colorado's Spring Break). Cold that day, but the pools were comfortable. When you come out of the changing rooms, you first encounter the hottest pool, crowded with folks. Frankly, I prefer to walk quite a ways toward the other end, and get into the larger pool, just before reaching the lap swimming lanes. I found enough room there to swim back and forth, float and just relax. Even with air temperature about 20 degrees, I was toasty in the pool. It was relaxing to gaze at the historic architecture, soak up the sun, and watch the steam rise off the waters. On my way out, I popped into the hot pool for a few minutes.

At times, the pools are pretty crowded, and it can be difficult to swim or even find some personal space.

The pool is clean, and surrounded by chairs (empty on a cold day such as this). Lifeguards are attentive. The changing rooms are clean and neat, and include machines that spin dry your bathing suits.

Lots of families enjoy the pools, and the vibe is active and friendly.
