Glenwood Springs has the largest outdoor pool in the world, which gets its water supply from a hot spring. It measures a length of 123 meters and a width of 30 meters. The thermal spa was opened in 1888, but the special healing power of the water has been known for many years before: Already the Ute Indians came here, as they believed the spring was sacred.

Healing water

In two pools you can enjoy the water and at the same time the location at the Colorado in midst of the Rocky Mountains. As it is, the bathing landscape of the Glenwood Hot Springs is entirely in the open air and yet you can visit it all year round. The larger pool has a temperature of 32° Celsius (89.6° Fahrenheit). It also has an area with springboards and sport lanes. The therapy pool has a length and width of 30 meters and a warmer temperature of about 40° Celsius (104° Fahrenheit). The bubble loungers invite you to relax. The water in this pool comes from the Yampah spring, east of the facility. Over 13 million liters hot water arise from it every day. The translation for Yampah is “Big Medicine”: 15 minerals contribute to the healing power in this water. As it has a original temperature of 51° C (123.8° F), it is cooled down for the pools.

Should you get hungry during your swim, go to The Grill. It is directly beside the pools. Alongside  traditional burger and chips, they also have a menu of the day with changing dishes. You are, however, also allowed to bring your own meal.

Summer in Glenwood Hot Springs

While in winter only the two main pools are heated, smaller spa visitors can enjoy themselves in a separate children's pool during summer. Two slides are also open at that point in time. The Avalanche Falls as well as the Shoshone Chute are over 90 meters long and go down from this height for over four floors in curves and twists.

Beside its bathing facilities, Glenwood Hot Springs also has a miniature golf course, a big fitness studio and a lodge with over 100 rooms. There is a sports shop, too.
