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.
