It’s in the Water!

Old Town Hot Springs hopes to be able to soon move forward with plans for an expansion and renovation to better serve members, guests, and community. The overall goal is to meet the growing demands of both residents and tourists so that we can provide meaningful health and wellness experiences at our facility for years to come in this community.

The planned expansion hopes to add 15,000 square feet to the existing building allowing room to expand the facility’s fitness and education programs including:

  • Expanded fitness, wellness and nutrition programming
  • Indoor walking track
  • Climbing wall
  • 2nd exercise classroom
  • Larger spin room
  • Double the number of cardio machines
  • Expanded weight room
  • Functional training room
  • Expanded downstairs locker rooms
  • 2nd family changing room

Plans to renovate the lap pool are part of a second phase but will come later. Old Town Hot Spring hopes to break ground in the spring of 2018. The total project costs for both phases is approximately $10 million – savings will supply $4 million. The goal is to raise the other $6 million through donations through a Capital Campaign. A campaign committee is leading the fundraising efforts and includes staff, board members and community members. We do not plan to raise membership fees or admission prices beyond normal increases for this project. Long time Executive Director, Pat Carney, who stepped down from the her leading role in April 2017, has taken on the position of Project Manager and will primarily focus on the Capital Campaign. Questions about the campaign can be directed to Pat or Executive Director, Stephanie Orozco.


We Need Your Help

Old Town Hot Springs is private non for profit in Steamboat Springs. We do not receive any funding from the city of Steamboat Springs despite operating in many ways as the town’s rec center. While we are able to sustain operations through revenue from memberships and admissions, this project will rely in many ways on generation donations from the community.

Campaign Committee

In order to meet our goals a team of community volunteers, board Members and OTHS staff has been formed This group will focus on facility expansion through a number of avenues, including identifying funding for needed improvements over the next 2-5 years.

The campaign committee is chaired by Eileen Allen and was co chaired by Mary Brown. Mary has resigned after a tragic bicycle accident in August so she can concentrate on her recovery.  We are grateful for the skills, knowledge and sense of humor she brought to the campaign for almost a year. We wish her the very best as she recovers. Other community volunteers are Penny Fletcher, Barb Shipley, Dave Franzel, Becky Lamb, Holly Williams and Kari Nelson. OTHS board members Rich Lowe and Jill Leary are also part of the group which is rounded out by OTHS Executive Director, Stephanie Orozco, and Project Manager Pat Carney.

We want to thank these volunteers for their service in this project and will keep members updated of their work over the coming months.
