"I'm talkin' about a place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talkin' about a place called Aspen." Lloyd (Played by Jim Carrey) - Dumb and Dumber
Sitting at an elevation of just under 8,000 feet along the Roaring Fork River, in a remote part of the Sawatch and Elk Mountains, this hard to reach and isolated part of the Colorado Rockies was founded by an adventurous group of miners. Established in 1879, Aspen quickly became a boomtown after emerging as the United State's most productive silver-mining district. These days it certainly still feels like a boomtown, but for an altogether different reason, instead of chipping away in a silver mine, it has made its modern day fortune from something different; the business of sliding down frozen water on two wooden planks. Yep, you guessed right, it's downhill skiing. The Aspen Skiing Corporation began life in 1946 by building a chairlift on Aspen Mountain. Since then, three separate ski areas sprung to life from the late 1950s onwards, these are Buttermilk, Aspen Highlands, and Snowmass. All combined it makes up one of the best-known ski towns in the world. See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Aspen renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.
However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.
Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.
It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.
Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.
However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
