Aspen Nightlife – Aspen Recreation Center




While the Aspen Recreation Center closes just



before 9pm, there is quite a bit of enjoyment to be



had here after a day on the slopes. If you get there



right after leaving the slopes, and eat a late dinner



– after the center closes – you will have plenty of



time to enjoy what the ARC has to offer.





The climbing walls at the center are the biggest



attraction. The ARC features approximately 3100 feet



of climbing walls for your enjoyment. There is also a



3-D climbing tower with more than 25 routes and four



auto belays.





Another nice feature at the Aspen Recreation Center



is the pool area. The James E. Moore Pool area



features two pools. One pool is 25 yards in length



and features six lanes, while the other pool is for



recreation and has a two story slide, a lazy river, and



spray features. You will also find a dry sauna, a steam



room, and hot tubs in the pool area.





The Lewis Ice Arena is also located at the Aspen



Recreation Center. Completed in the Spring of 2003,



the arena features an NHL regulation size skating



surface, grandstand seating for 450, a skate shop,



locker rooms, and shower rooms. Public skating,



skating lessons, figure skating, youth and adult



hockey, and skating shows are available. You can



also host private parties at the arena. High altitude



training is also offered here.





You will also find cardio and weight rooms at the



center, and many fitness classes are also offered.



The Aspen Recreation Center hosts many off-site



activities in the Aspen area as well, such as golf,



tennis, climbing, aquatics, sailing, skateboarding,



ceramics classes, baseball, softball, soccer,



hockey, and various camps.





Babysitting services are available at the center as



well. This place is a great way to wrap up a day of



activity and wind down before your evening meal.



Again, the Aspen Recreation Center closes just



before 9pm, so make sure you head there right after



leaving the slopes for the day.





Admission for guests is $13 for youths and $15 for



adults. Admission includes access to the climbing



towers, swimming pool area, ice skating rink, weight



room, cardio room, adult fitness classes, water



aerobics, climbing wall and playhouse, and tennis



courts. The Aspen Recreation Center is a great place



for every member of the family. Call ahead to find out



about any planned events that are going on for even



more entertainment options.
