Glenwood Springs, CO (Vocus) April 26, 2010
It’s a known fact that many Colorado-based businesses, like the ski or gas station industries, typically raise prices during their peak seasons even in hard times. The Glenwood Hot Springs has a different approach. The Colorado mountain-town hot spot will not be raising its 2009 prices for summer 2010 at any of its venues and that includes admission to the Hot Springs Pool, miniature golf, waterslide rides, the Glenwood Hot Springs Athletic Club, services at the Spa of the Rockies as well as the price of annual pool passes.
“We have a loyal customer base. Some families have been coming to the Glenwood Hot Springs for decades because we’ve always been a family vacation value – now grandparents are bringing their grandkids – that’s the kind of fixture we are for vacationing families. We are also tuned into the fact that the state of the economy is touching the lives of our customers and we feel now is not the time for us to raise prices,” said Kjell Mitchell, Chief Operating Officer for the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool.
The Glenwood Hot Springs did not raise admission prices in 2009 either and the cost of annual season passes has remained the same since 2006. In effect, with each passing year of not raising prices, the Glenwood Hot Springs becomes an even better value. All day admission to the pool during peak season, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, is $18.25 on weekends, $16.75 weekdays, and for kids ages 3 to 12 it’s $11.25 and $10.75 respectively. Even mini-golf prices aren’t budging. It still costs only $6 for adults and $4 for kids to play a round of mini-golf. The shade and the laughs are free!
The Glenwood Hot Springs is famous for its historic and enormous hot springs pool that is open year-round, but is a vacation destination for many during the summer months. The neighboring Spa of the Rockies, which opened in 2008, is located in the historic bathhouse, one of Glenwood Springs’ oldest and most beautiful structures. There, visitors can enjoy fairly priced spa services like massages, facials, nail treatments and more while on vacation. The 107-room Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge, always an outstanding value, includes admission to the Hot Springs Pool and complimentary continental breakfasts. Vacation packages are available through the Lodge, many of which incorporate the spa or other great Glenwood Springs activities like rafting or exploring caves.
