Rocky Mountain Recreation

Jaywalker Lodge is nestled in the Roaring Fork Valley on Main Street in Carbondale, Colorado. Jaywalker’s recreational programing has access to Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, Glenwood springs and Carbondale trail systems, parks and resorts. Our goal with Jaywalker clients is to incorporate recreation in communities other than our home in Carbondale. We travel with our clients to experience recreation and AA in other Colorado communities like Vail, Winter Park, Keystone, Breckenridge, and use the 10th Mountain Division Hut system on guided trips. Exposure for our clients to learn to travel, recreate, and integrate in different communities is a crucial skill in recovery. We offer safe and supportive programing to take full advantage of the Colorado Rocky Mountains in all seasons.

4 Feet

After a near record setting drought in January and most of February, most of us thought winter was over. Mother nature reminded us that winter was in fact alive and well by dropping four feet of snow on us in the last 7 days. Happy Shredding!

Christmas Eve Dinner at Pine Creek Cookhouse

What a glorious Christmas Eve Dinner we shared at Pine creek Cookhouse outside Aspen near the ghost town of Ashcroft. Almost 50 members of the Jaywalker family including Staff, Clients, and Alumni journeyed into the beautiful Aspen Grove at the base of the Elk Mountain range. We were treated to a five-star, four-course meal of organic and locally sourced meats and veggies. The food was fantastic and the fellowship was even better. I had a great conversation with one of my co-workers discussing what an amazing staff we have and how fortunate we are to work at Jaywalker, an organization who truly values both their clients and employees. My heart is filled with gratitude and love to have the opportunity to work for such a wonderful employer and alongside such incredible co-workers. I can’t imagine a better way to spend Christmas Eve, surrounded by family and friends. Bobby, Thanks for…

Opening Day

 This weekend Aspen Snowmass ski area opened with over 600 acres of ski-able terrain and several inches of fresh snow that had accumulated consistently during the week leading up to the much-anticipated event. We were in the lift line 45 minutes before the first lift started spinning. That was ample time to whip out the camp stove and prepare sausage and eggs in line. As I scanned the faces in the crowd, I found several groups of fellow Jaywalker Alumni fidgeting nervously in line, waiting for the rope to drop. The skiing was superb and my legs were not ready for the powder day. By 1pm we were heading back to the parking lot, filled with gratitude for such an incredible opening day shared with friends. Here’s to a good season. Adam Mink Landing Tech Supervisor Jaywalker Lodge
