Carbondale is a very small town between Aspen and Glenwood Springs. It has a cute little Main Street with a large amount of quality restaurants, Six89, Phat Thai, Hestia and on Hwy 133 there is a Tortilleria La Roca with the best homemade tortillas. There are also a number of Golf Courses in the area, River Valley Ranch comes to mind and I know there are others in Carbondale, Aspen, Glenwood, and New Castle. There is a hospital in Glenwood and in Aspen along with numerous Dr. offices in between. Banks are all over the place, I know of Wells Fargo, but there are plenty of the others also. Car Dealerships are mainly in Glenwood. There are chain hotels in Glenwood, Carbondale and Basalt. I believe Basalt has a shooting range, most places are on city water and sewer, Comcast is the major tv/internet provider but Dish is up here too. Property taxes were low when we owned in Basalt a few years ago, not sure what they are like now.

Growing season up there is short at an elevation of 6200 feet. Last frost is probably mid-May and first frost if probably mid-September, but avid gardeners have some tricks to extend that range.

To your edit. Aspen, Glenwood, Carbondale and Basalt all have Farmer's Markets, Paonia grows some great veggies and brings them over the pass, not to mention the growers in Palisaide and their peaches. We had success with tomatoes and herbs in Basalt and now live at 8150 in Avon, I had tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, radish, and herbs last year, the hardest part for me is keeping the deer away. It's a very dry climate, you may have dry eyes if you are prone to them.

Nice area, except for the strip mining.

I know about the quarry in Marble, Redstone and the Coal Seam outside of Glenwood, but where did they strip mine in Carbondale, I can't seem to place it?

We had Verizon when we lived in Basalt and it worked fine. You will lose cell signal in some areas, if you use your cell as your home phone, be sure to check the reception at your new house.
