Destination guide

Take a break in the old Alma mater

Alma's proud boast is that it's North America's highest incorporated town, but it's got a whole lot more going for it than that. This homey former mining town is a honeypot for hikers and SUV adventurers looking to bite off some serious challenges. Your Alma vacation rental is going to give you the kind of mountain views that most travelers can only dream of, and with its friendly eateries and arty vibe, the town itself is the sort of place that'll have you planning next year's vacation before this one's over.

Things to do

Rubbing shoulders with Spengler and Venkman

Fancy a spooktacular excursion? How about strapping on your proton pack and visiting the nearby ghost town of Buckskin Joe? Abandoned in the 1860s when the gold ran out, it draws ghost-hunters from far and wide thanks to the specter of a local dancing girl called Silver Heels. Alma itself and the surrounding area are full of historic buildings from its mining past, but aside from that, your main focus is going to be on the area's natural wonders. Take a trip up to Kite Lake or Montgomery Reservoir to catch some of the best views.


Whatever you do, just don't look down

The first thing you need to do when you come out of your Alma vacation rental is look up. With several mountains above the magic 14,000-ft mark, you could spend weeks hiking in this area and still never get round them all. And the diversions round Alma don't have to be of the pedestrian variety. Off-road enthusiasts will want to get their vehicles geared up for a run along Mosquito Pass, the highest such route in North America. Each summer, Alma also plays host to the Festival in the Clouds, an outdoor art and music festival that takes place in July.


Up here in the mountains, the weather is snow joke

If you're looking to tackle the Mosquito Pass, then you'll want to do it in summer, because come winter, this high-altitude town gets more than its fair share of snow. Depending on your point of view, that might be a good thing, and skiers/snowshoers certainly won't be short of routes to explore. As for the summer, you'll be pleased to hear that things are going to be a lot warmer for your Alma vacation rental, though it's worth remembering that the temperatures can still drop off sharply when the sun starts to go down.

Natural features

Pining for the perfect Alma vacation rental

At nearly 11,700 ft above sea level, Alma is one of the highest towns in the U.S. Above it tower five 14,000-ft peaks, with old mining claims still visible on their slopes. The area surrounding Alma is known as South Park, and if that sounds familiar, it's because the TV show is set there. For something a bit out of the ordinary, you could pay a visit to Windy Ridge Bristlecone Pine Scenic Area. These rare trees can live to thousands of years old, and have been bent over permanently by the strong mountain winds.
