Being proximate to the Aspen/Snowmass ski areas, makes Basalt an ideal location to stay while one enjoys the slopes. In fact travel time from Basalt to Snowmass is the about the same time as travelling from Aspen to Snowmass.


There is excellent boating in the area from rafting down the rivers to taking out a sailboat or water skiing on Ruedi Reservoir, just 13 miles from Basalt.
