There are still places like this on earth, but they’re rare. Stunningly beautiful, seemingly undiscovered places that are close to everything, yet feel far away. Places that are both exhilarating and tranquil. A location that offers four distinct seasons creating a rich cultural, active, family-oriented lifestyle. Best of all, this is a real community where friendliness comes naturally and healthy living is second nature.
Look around and you’ll see friendly faces of all ages here: Young families with kids, working professionals and retired folks. People gather for golf and tennis tournaments, join friends at the Aspen Glen Club for fine dining. Everywhere you go there’s a welcoming smile.
With uncluttered vistas of Mt. Sopris in the distance and deer right outside your door you’d think you were far from civilization. Yet, with U.S. Route 70 nearby, you have easy access to shopping, entertainment, three airports, top-notch medical facilities and world-class cultural events.
As the beauty of the valley invigorates you, the pace of life here calms you. No rush hour traffic, no reason to hurry, and every reason to feel safe and relaxed. The air is fresh and clean and the feeling of belonging is authentic.
The Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA) is the largest rural transit system in the U.S. and provides commuter bus service in the Roaring Fork Valley, ski shuttle service to the four Aspen Skiing Company mountains, Maroon Bells Guided Bus Tours, and a variety of other seasonal services.

There is a stop located right outside the Aspen Glen entrance and a convenient park-and-ride lot in nearby Carbondale.
