Annual Wind River Conference

Wind River Conference - Annually since 1999


The Wind River Conference (WRC) has been around for more than 50 years. Many of the years were at the neighboring ranch (Wind River Ranch, hence the name). Then, the owners sold the WR Ranch and we started looking for place to have our meeting in this locale. At the 25th WRC we had our banquet, because of 125 attendees, at Aspen Lodge next door. My impression was that the Aspen Lodge was a fancier place and probably too expensive for our academic budgets. A lot of us brought students to the meeting and paid for them.

2014 Wind River Conference

I had scouted other sites in Estes Park and the Aspen Lodge area but none suited our needs. So, I stopped by Aspen Lodge. I was met by a very nice lady, Amber, who asked me why I needed the Aspen Lodge and when would the meeting be? I told her we are an international scientific meeting, which brings in 80-100 people a year from all over. She nodded. I also told her that our budgets, which our parent schools approve, are limited. She nodded again. I told her we would come in the first week of June, and she smiled. My colleagues and I came to talk with her in detail and we agreed that they could match our budgets match our space needs and we could come early enough to “train” their kitchen workers. It was a match made in heaven. So, for the last almost 15 years we have been at Aspen Lodge. The staff has been wonderful, the food mighty good, and ambiance unexcelled. The meeting runs mornings, evenings, and at least one afternoon is free for people to explore Estes Park, the trails, the lakes, the mountains. We are extremely happy here. Last year we had a scare when a mudslide wanted to ruin our meeting plans. The staff did a heroic job of cleaning up and we had our meeting as always. This was the best meeting I can remember, because everyone participated maximally and the sessions were vibrant. I suspect the fact that we were able to hold the meeting here was key to the superb meeting.

Anyway, we plan to be here for many, many more years. If any of you are molecular biologists or bacteriologists, we would welcome you. We are the Wind River Conference on Prokaryotic Biology. In 2015 will be our 59th annual meeting.

Good colleagues, good science, beautiful place, good hosts, what more could any meeting want? Come and experience the Aspen lodge for yourself.

Dr. Uldis N. Streips - Professor, University of Louisville School of Medicine, Chief Officer of the Conference

Wedding Testimonials

Read what some of our past couples have to say about their experience holding their wedding at the Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa.

Lisa and Kyle - August 2014

Lisa and Kyles' wedding at the Aspen Lodge

"The team at Aspen Lodge were delightful to work with. The staff exceeded our expectations at every turn. We couldn't imagine a more perfect wedding day. We plan to come back every year for our anniversary!"







Ryan and Bente - July 2014

Ryan and Bente's wedding at the Aspen Lodge

"The Aspen Lodge is the ideal wedding venue for those looking for the perfect blend of natural beauty, rustic charm, and quality service.  We really enjoyed the venue on its own right, but combined with the exceptional service on our wedding day it will truly be one to remember.  The folks at The Aspen Lodge really bent over backwards to make the inconveniences of inclement weather at our ceremony bearable, to make our reception dinner elegant and refined to our tastes, and to make our party as fun and care-free as we had envisioned.  All and all, a very adaptable and enjoyable staff to work with and we wouldn't have wished for anything different about the whole experience.  Thanks Aspen Lodge for helping us create lasting memories."








Andria & Ryun - June 2014Andria and Ryun's wedding at the Aspen Lodge


Aspen Lodge was a beautiful place to get married! With just over 3 months to plan and having recently survived a landslide of epic proportions, Aspen Lodge was able to help make our wedding dreams become a reality! The staff was very kind and welcoming. They were always looking for ways to help. The scenery and landscape at Aspen Meadow made for a whimsical, fairy tale-esque wedding ceremony. The wildflowers were lovely and the landslide added to the awe of the mountainside. The site is so pretty you hardly needs decorations. Same goes for the Longs Peak Room - it has such natural beauty. The large windows let the afternoon sun beam in and the views of Longs Peak from inside or out on the balcony are stunning. One of our favorite parts of the day was the meal. We requested a custom Polish menu to commemorate and share our Poland travels with our family and friends and were absolutely thrilled with the dishes. It was some of the tastiest Polish food we've had, rivaling some of the food we had in Poland. The lodge's location was ideal. It's close to town, but far enough from town to feel secluded and peaceful. It's an excellent get-a-way spot for any occasion. We adore Estes Park and our out-of-town guests could quickly see why. We were able to showcase much of what Estes Park has to offer over our wedding weekend. Thank you, Aspen Lodge!

Progress Report - February 28, 2014

We have been working very hard over the winter and have successfully restored water service to the Lodge building.  Within a few days, we anticipate restoring water service to the Restaurant and other buildings.  As you can well image this effort has proven to be quite difficult and expensive.  Any additional financial aid that you can give to help restore this historic Colorado lodge property to full operational status will be greatly appreciately.  We will be fully operational on June 1st, 2014 and want to remain one of the premiere mountain lodges in all of North America.


Aspen Lodge Resort and Spa hit by a landslide


On September 12, 2013 at approximately 10pm, torrential rains from a storm over central Colorado created a massive catastrophic event over Twin Peaks near Estes Park, Colorado. Mud and trees destroyed everything in its path and eventually reached the Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa, causing devastating destruction to the infrastructure, cabins, stables and lake.  Many of the employees living on the property have been displaced. Thankfully, no one was injured but the situation remains critical. The Lodge water system was destroyed and those living there are without clean running water, hot water, and a sewage system.

This beautiful property, of over 80 acres, is currently covered with 3 feet of mud and debris. A massive clean up of the property and surrounding areas, as well as rebuilding the road and water systems, is needed as soon as possible.

Please join our efforts to rebuild this community. Each and every donation, regardless of size, will have a profound impact on restoration and preservation of this beautiful area. We are gladly accepting volunteers to help clean up the lodge and the property. Please contact us at 970-586-8133 for volunteering opportunities.

Thank you for any support you can give - whether a donation, a thought, or a prayer.

the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park is Aspen Lodge, a destination resort and wellness spa retreat. It is now oper- ating under new direction with Yun Xiang Tseng—known as Master Chen—a 25th generation Taoist priest from Wudang Mountain in China.

Under Master Chen’s new ownership, the newest addition to the 82-acre wilderness retreat has been the conception, design- ing and building of a world-class Asian wellness spa and retreat.

As a Taoist priest, Master Chen is focused on traditional Chinese medicine as a foundation for the spa, which delivers special wellness programs and advanced Asian therapies.

When Taoist Tai Chi master and entrepreneur Yun Xiang Tseng (known as Chen) took over ownership of the long established Aspen Lodge Resort and Spa in Estes Park, he began refining its facilities and services to reflect a “triple bottom line” approach to business (people, planet and profit), and added a holistic health spa, a new organic restaurant and greened all its operations. The result is an environment perfectly suited to conscious businesses and professionals that combines a remarkable natural setting with thoughtful management and services. It is truly an inspiring location for meetings, whether just one day for 10 people or a weeklong retreat for 150

Since immigrating to the United States from China in 1990, Yun Xiang Tseng -- Chen, as he is known -- has had one goal in mind. He's a little bit closer to that goal since buying the Aspen Lodge Resort & Spa this spring. He now has a place to build his goal, but in the meantime he's got a business to run.

Some say Tai Chi is natural, harmonic and organic. Practicing Tai Chi brings people closer to nature emotionally and spiritually. Now, you can do what many practitioners dream of, to go to a mountain sanctuary to practice the art in a wholesome experience. Attend a Tai Chi retreat or organize your own Tai Chi camp at the Aspen Lodge and enjoy the beauty of the Colorado Rockies.

Estes Park is a town in Larimer County, Colorado. It is a popular resort and the location of the headquarters for Rocky Mountain National Park.

One year ago this month, Master Chen purchased the Aspen Lodge, located less than eight miles south of Estes Park off Highway 7. Master Chen sees himself as a vendor of the resort - as a Taoist Priest trained on the sacred Taoist Mountain of Wudang in the HuBei Province of China, he teaches spiritual healing, Tai Chi, and Quigong at the resort and spa; he has more than 8,000 students nationwide. Aspen Lodge is now his base, said Chen, and the classes and seminars he holds there have allowed the resort and spa to stay viable year round. Chen had been practicing in the United States for more than 20 years before purchasing Aspen Lodge, which he describes as a sacred place with unsurpassed beauty.

The Tahosa Valley is a sacred place, located between Longs Peak on the west and Twin Sisters on the east. "It's the unity of 'yin and yang' of the muscular power of Longs Peak and the feminine softness of Twin Sisters," explained Yun Xiang Tseng (Master Chen), the new owner of the Aspen Lodge.

"The Aspen Lodge property is located between the nurturing mountains, on a property that is very mystical, with a history of native ancestors. It is a very sacred land," said Chen.

At a very young age, Master Chen was recognized and chosen by his master to learn the ancient wisdom of Wu Dang Tai Chi, Qi Gong, meditation and healing arts at Wudang mountain. He is a 14th generation Wu Dang Zhang Sanfeng lineage holder and a 25th generation Long Men Daoist Priest.

Practice in the West
In 1990, Master Chen immigrated from the People's Republic of China to the United States at the behest of his master, Master Li. He now resides at the future temple site in Estes Park, Colorado at Aspen Lodge, with his wife and three children. With his gift for making Daoist thought accessible, Master Chen has taught the Wu Dang tradition of Daoism to many thousands of students in America and many people in China.
