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.

This place is huge. I am not into super hot water, especially when it is already hot outside. I went as part of a group. But, I enjoyed just being there, walking the length of the pool in the water, watching everyone having a good time.

Very cool spot but I was shocked at how many people they allow in at one time. I'm staying at the hotel and have free access but they sell entrance to the public. It was slammed. A bit too crowded for me. But the water felt great.

The only reason I come here is because my 7 yr old loves pools and water slides, and it's a nice weekend excursion from Boulder. The cost compared to similar public pool experiences around Boulder/Denver is cringe-worthy, they truly have a baffling racket going on here. I don't mind the entrance fee so much, it's the astronomical additional charges for the slides that really bothers me. On top of that, as other reviewers have mentioned, there is no shade, the staff is indifferent, and overall the facility seems dated and worn a bit. This was probably our last visit.

Very large pools, lots of people, no shade, a bit pricey. Therapy pool too warm; swimming pool temperature comfortable. We like hot springs, but prefer smaller pools with fewer people.

Won't be back. Prices are ridiculously high. Go to Water World for the same price and 100x bigger. Definitely a tourist trap.
