Aspen Recreation Center

The Aspen Recreation Center (the "ARC") is a full-service fitness and recreation facility with activities for the whole family. During normal high seasons, there are over 40 fitness classes per week at both the ARC and the Red Brick Recreation Center as well as Aspen's only public indoor lap pool and the largest indoor kid pool with lazy river and two-story water slide.

The Aspen Recreation Center reopened in early October 2020 with limited services and activities. Frias Properties guests still receive complimentary access, and reservations are required to access the following adult fitness offerings:

  • Ice skating is available and can be reserved in one-hour sessions. Maximum skating capacity is 15 guests, and face masks must be worn at all times. Skate rentals are not available.
  • Leisure Pool is open with two-hour family sessions available. Guests may remove masks while swimming.
  • Lap Swimming is available Monday through Saturday and can be reserved by the hour with six lanes available per hour.
  • Cardio Room equipment can be reserved by time slot. (Masks must be worn at all times in the cardio room.)
  • Weight Room equipment may be reserved by time slot and zone. (Masks must be worn at all times in the weight room.)
  • The Whoa Nelly Sledding Hill is open, and sleds are available for purchase inside the ARC ($20). Families must maintain social distance from other groups.

Fitness classes and climbing wall sessions are available at the Red Brick Recreation Center.
