Situated in the heart of the Colorado Rockies just 30 minutes from Aspen, CRMS is surrounded by some of America's most outstanding vistas. At the crossroads of forest, river, valley, and mountain, the 300+-acre CRMS campus (which doubles as a working ranch) takes full advantage of its bucolic location in the shadow of 13,000-foot Mount Sopris.
Despite the fact that the campus is removed from the bustle of urban life, visiting CRMS is not difficult. Several airports are within driving distance, and local lodging and dining amenities are plentiful.
