Breathtaking mountains, beautiful trails, unlimited recreation, and plain and simple ― a peaceful vibe. This is the healthy lifestyle that Aspen and its surrounding areas offer. Realtor® Gary Feldman of Gary Feldman Group at Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty, who has spent 34 years selling Aspen’s finest luxury properties is pleased to offer his take on some of the features that lend to a healthy lifestyle in the area:
Healthy restaurants ― If you’re looking to dine on healthy fare, look no further than Spring Café Organic Food & Juice Bar
, featuring inventive and nurturing plant-based cuisine using organic, wholesome, and naturally delicious ingredients. The Big Wrap
entices with incredibly delicious gourmet wraps, tacos, salads, homemade vegan soups, smoothies, and more. JÜS Aspen
― founded by a brother and sister who discovered juicing out of necessity after a life-changing health crisis ― boasts healthy fresh-pressed juices, milk, smoothies, hand-crafted breakfast and lunch items, and satisfying snacks.
Outdoor activities ― Where aren’t there outdoor activities in Aspen? There are so many ways to enjoy recreational activities while experiencing the beauty of nature, that it’s difficult to narrow it down. From Snowmass to Aspen Mountain and beyond, hiking trails abound. Here’s a hiking guide
to help you find your favorite. How about biking? Check out the Snowmass Bike Park
, which offers almost 3,000 vertical feet of purpose-built downhill trails.
Of course, horseback riding is a popular activity in Aspen ― here are some suggestions for fantastic guided horseback trail rides
. Is yoga your thing? Try open-air Hatha yoga on the top of Aspen Mountain
. Rafting and kayaking
― ideal for everyone from thrill-seekers to novices ― are also very popular in Aspen.
Aspen Saturday Farmers Market ― For over 20 years from mid-June to mid-October, the Aspen Farmer’s Market
has provided the ideal way to spend a Saturday morning: perusing Colorado-grown produce and Colorado-produced artisan products. The market features fruits, vegetables, bread, meats, jams, and more, and even a food court! Plus, you can enjoy live music while exploring the local jewelry, ceramics, and art for sale.
Health clubs & spas ― Who doesn’t need a great workout or relaxing trip to the spa
? Aspen is home to many state-of-the-art fitness studios, personal trainers, traditional gyms, and award-winning five-star spas. In fact, Remède Spa at The St. Regis Aspen Resort
has been named the world’s best hotel spa by Travel + Leisure magazine! Another great place to visit is 02 Aspen
, a boutique fitness center that features yoga, aerial yoga, Pilates, and personal training.
Just living every day within the beautiful nature that Aspen and its surrounding areas offer inspires residents and visitors to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. For instance, RiveRoar
, seen in Aerin Lauder’s recent book “Aspen Style,” is a 3,298-square-foot architectural masterpiece on a 21,780-square-foot lot in Snowmass. It’s situated only 10 feet from the Roaring Fork River’s edge, where no other home can ever be built in Pitkin County, due to current codes requiring a 100-foot setback. The whitewater rafting trips even go past the home. Surrounded by more than 20, 75-foot evergreen trees, it boasts beautiful mountain/valley views from every room and has sprawling outdoor spaces. The home’s cantilevered dining room window actually overlooks the splendor of the river. It’s listed for $4.895 million.
It’s been said that being in nature helps to boost not only physical health but also mental well-being. With its array of outdoor activities, healthy eating options, general positive attitude about health, and more, Aspen is a wonderful place to immerse yourself in a healthy lifestyle.
