Located 18 miles down valley from Aspen, Basalt is most known for its Gold Medal waters for trout fishing along the Frying Pan River, which runs through its quaint downtown along Midland Avenue to the confluence of the Roaring Fork River. In addition to taking advantage of the abundance of biking and hiking trails surrounding Basalt, locals love to shop and dine on Old Town Basalt’s historic Midland Avenue or head down Highway 82 to Willits Town Center — a newer development featuring modern lofts, a Whole Foods, day spas, restaurants and boutiques. Basalt also offers traditional single-family developments, ranching properties, fly fishing retreats and expansive estates in the sub-neighborhoods of Emma, W. Sopris Creek, Frying Pan and Reudi Reservoir, where you can enjoy every on-water activity.



A long-time Aspen local, Chris Klug knows a thing or two about mountain living. As a three-time Olympian, a Bronze Medalist Snowboarder in 2002 in Salt Lake City, and an eleven-time US National Snowboarding Champion Chris has visited most of the best mountain resorts in the world. He believes there is no place like Aspen. He knows the best places on and off the mountain. Chris takes being your real estate agent seriously. He brings the same positive attitude, determination and dedication that made him an Olympic Champion to his real estate clients.

In 2000, after six years on a waiting list, Chris received a life-saving liver transplant. While waiting for a second chance Chris committed to helping make a difference to those awaiting the gift of life. In 2003 he founded the Chris Klug Foundation dedicated to promoting the importance of organ donation. Chris acts as chairman of the Chris Klug Foundation, and is the creator of the Aspen Summit for Life, a night-time uphill snowshoe race to the top of Aspen Mountain to celebrate life and help raise funds for Chris Klug Foundation.

We were able to purchase our home within weeks – not easy coming from another state, and not easy during Covid! Chris was always available, seemingly in the middle of the night at times, to review options, set appointments, and make sure we understood the process and market. He knows the market and understood how to navigate it. To do all of this, in a matter of weeks, during very difficult circumstances was quite a feat. He has our highest recommendation!

Chris did an excellent job of finding me the perfect Aspen property… and it took a while! He hung in there and showed me tons of homes that met my criteria. And, once we had a contract, his attention to detail and follow through made my closing possible without a hitch despite my international travels. I highly recommend Chris!!!
