Avalanche Ranch is a quiet hot springs resort, tucked away in the Crystal River Valley, just south of Carbondale. They feature three mineral pools and a variety of rustic homes.
Day use is limited to two daily windows, every day except Wednesday. Visitors can use the springs during four-hour time slots, between 9 am – 1 pm or 1 pm – 5 pm. Reservations are required.
Avalanche Ranch features three natural hot springs pools alongside the Crystal River. The pools are in a tiered layout, the largest one with a relaxing three-foot waterfall in front of a rock grotto.
They are available year-round day and night, except for Wednesdays when the pools are being cleaned. They open at 5 pm on Wednesday only for overnight. Day guests require advance reservations to use.
