Woody Creek/Old Snowmass:
If your thinking Aspen, if your thinking more laid back, if your thinking horses, think Woody Creek.
Intimate, Historic, I would call this Aspen’s Vintage Setting.
Worldly Exposed but intimately settled.
Woody Creek is situated in the valley of the Roaring Fork River northwest of Aspen, along State Highway 82, where Woody Creek exits a canyon and joins the Roaring Fork. It is situated at the northwest (and least developed) end of a small valley that stretches southeast along the Roaring Fork to Aspen.
The community is centered around the Woody Creek Tavern, a well-known landmark that sits along a county road, somewhat concealed from State Highway 82. Adjacent to the tavern is a trailer park and several homes, ranging from modest older ones to newer upscale structures. Patrons of the tavern can request a postcard from the bar which comes with postage for USA delivery, which can be scrawled upon and dropped off at the nearby post office.
Woody Creek was the residence of noted author Hunter S. Thompson for much of his life and at the time of his death. It also has been the home of several other notable popular celebrities and musicians.
