Quinn's Hot Springs Resort

“Our new pool system was born in concept when I attended the Hot Springs Convention in November 2019 in Palm Springs. It was there that I met both Vicky and Steve Beckley, CEO of Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood CO, and established the connection that led to me visiting last winter and observing their state-of-the-art system, upon which ours is modeled. Without that mentorship and technical information, we would not have the incredible system we have today.”

~Ben Slusser, Vice President/Director of Operations at Quinn’s Hot Springs Resort
