Waterfall at Ute Pool

Waterfall at Ute Pool

To help with the duldrums of October, we headed to Hot Sulphur Springs last Sunday night. We thought we’d be the only ones there but we were wrong!  I guess others were wanting to warm up in the natural hot springs of Grand County located in the county seat aptly named: Hot Sulphur Springs.

What fun! We ran out in the cold in our suits and jumped into the 104 degree pool with the waterfall. ah, warmth (and smelly sulphur!).  Amy pointed out a lSarah B in the original springittle part of the pool where the water comes from that doesn’t have a concrete bottom and dared us to get in there. It was a little freaky at night but I did it and so did the other Sarah B from Cape Cod (photo below).

There are tons of little pools to choose from, plus indoor pools too. A great spot to head to if you’re not skiing for the day or if you want to soak after a long day on the slopes. And, make sure you print of this coupon before you go for a discount.

To get there, go past Fraser, Tabernash, Granby and head straight to Hot Sulphur. Probably about a 30 minute drive from Winter Park but well worth it!
