Carbondale is a small town located 30 miles north of Aspen and 170 miles west of Denver in the heart of the central Rocky Mountains. It is easily accessible from Interstate 70 through Glenwood Springs, which is just 12 miles north of Carbondale. Called the "Hub of the Roaring Fork Valley," Carbondale is a town for all seasons. Numerous gift shops, art galleries and specialty shops are found downtown and several special events are held in the town throughout the year, including the Carbondale Mountain Fair in July. With its' central location in the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley, Carbondale is just minutes from the world class skiing at Aspen and Snowmass and is also just a short drive to the nearby natural hot pools at Glenwood Springs. The town rests in the shadow of the 12,953-foot Mount Sopris and The West Elk Loop, a Colorado Scenic Byway, weaves right through the middle of town. Just a few of the activities (besides skiing) in the area include fly-fishing, hiking, mountain biking, river rafting and kayaking, horseback riding and camping. For history buffs, The Mount Sopris Historical Museum is housed in a century old, two-story log cabin and gives a detailed history of the area. Carbondale also offers daily bus service to and from Glenwood Springs, Basalt and Aspen.

Carbondale Weather & Climate

Northwestern Colorado has a highland, alpine mountain cliamte. Having the highest average elevation in the United States, combined with complex topography, results in dramatic climate changes from place to place. A general rule of thumb is the higher the elevation, the lower the temperature with an increase in precipitation. Northwest Colorado has snowy winters and mild summers. In years when snow cover is heavy at high elevations, or when there is a sudden warming in the spring at high elevations, flooding may be a problem. Thunderstorms are possible in spring and summer. Hail is common in the northwest part of the state. Autumn means crisp, dry days with lots of sunshine and cool nights. Spring and autumn weather can change rapidly.
