Resplendent Summer in the Roaring Fork Valley

Resplendent Summer in the Roaring Fork Valley
From enlightening nature at every turn; to charming communities replete with exceptional events, shopping, and dining; to endless recreational opportunities, the Roaring Fork Valley presents adventures all of its own in the summer months. Including the communities of Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, Carbondale, and Glenwood Springs, the Roaring Fork Valley follows the beautiful Roaring Fork River, surrounded by majestic mountains on all sides. It begins on Independence Pass and follows the river from Aspen to Glenwood Springs.
In fact, at Gary Feldman Group at Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty, our listing RiveRoar ― a 3,298-square-foot, three-level home ― is built only 10 feet from the Roaring Fork River’s edge. This is a rare opportunity to reside where no other home can ever be built again in Pitkin County, due to current codes requiring a 100-foot setback. RiveRoar is located at 4076 Lower River Road, Snowmass, CO 81654.
The Roaring Fork Valley is a wonderful place to spend the summer. Following are a few suggestions for summertime fun in the area:
