Colorado Winter Feature Winter 2001
They don't call Colorado Mountains the "Ultimate Mountain Playground" for nothing! Throughout the year, Colorado has an endless array of activities for everyone to enjoy.
If you are visiting during the winter
you will certainly find the world famous skiing and snowboarding but
have you tried snow-shoeing, snow-mobiling, ice-skating or tubing?
First, we recommend that you do not rent a vehicle, there are several options to help you get to your destinations. Once you have arrived at your resort each town offers the largest free bus system in the country and offers complimentary bus shuttles daily, running every ten minutes. To connect from Vail to Beaver Creek there is a bus that charges $3.00 per person (one way).
You don't need to bring your skis and snowboarding gear! The resorts have made it very convenient for all your ski, snowboard equipment and apparel needs.
Known Locally as One Track Mind Located in the Resort
The Vail Marriott
Our first stop took us to "The Vail Marriott Mountain Resort & Spa". Here you will find a cozy resort nestled at the base of Vail Mountain. It is located 150 yards from the Lionhead ski gondola.
They specialize in Sports, Swedish,
Shiatsu, Neuromuscular, Reflexology, Pre-natal, Acupressure, Core, Aromatherapy
and Deep Tissue Massages. They also offer the most sophisticated body
treatments in the Vail Valley. The "Seaweed body mask & herbal
body wrap" is a must for detoxifying the body! Their Canadian hydrotherapy
tub helps your body absorb nutrients from a mud, seawater or aromatherapy
The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa
Our next stop, was Beaver Creek. The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa was an exceptional find! The resort is a rough-hewn wood and sandstone interior, which gives you the feel of "old-world elegance". There are numerous wall-sized fireplaces that give you a cozy feeling, with lots of tempting nooks to socialize in. This is truly a romantic setting in an atmosphere of rustic warmth and unassuming affluence. It takes on a magical air with a ice skating rink (located beside the Park Hyatt property), sleigh rides in the snow and storytelling by firelight.
Once again, we suggest equipment rental this time from Gorsuch Ltd., located in the hotel. You may contact them on line to reserve your equipment www.gorsuchltd.com. They also offer a full line of winter ski apparel for men, women and children.
The "Allegria" spa has reached their goal of being one of the best spas in the Rockies. They truly have set new standards for design and innovation in the spa industry. "Allegria, which means "happiness" in Italian was designed with the influence of Feng Shui to create perfect harmony and relaxation.
The list of spa therapies available
is extensive and includes such custom-designed elements as specialized
Feng Shui treatments. Hydrotherapy, aromatherapy facials and a variety
of massage treatments that are offered by an expert staff of technicians.
The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera
They do have a cross-country ski
and snow shoeing course near the Lodge, with equipment rental available
for a small charge of $15.00 per day. Lighter side cuisine is offered
to those watching their weight. Some very exceptional treatments offered
at the Spa at Cordillera are: Thermal Mineral Kur, this deluxe treatment
has a detoxifying and totally relaxing effect! Be sure not to miss the
"Essential Oil Wrap", this is considered the "upgraded
massage". This luxurious application of the finest essential oils
and therapeutic mineral cream works to relieve tension, provide moisture
to dry skin and promote an overall sense of well-being!
The fitness center is included in your stay with Cordillera and features Cybex and Technix equipment to help you get a great work out! The hours are from 6:30am-9: 00pm.
Some exceptional fine dining establishments
were found in the are. These include the Chapparal, The Grouse on the Green, Picasso and Timber Hearth Grille A very special activity offered by the Timber Hearth Grille is the "Sleigh Ride Dinner" (970) 926-5588.
On to our final destination, Aspen!
The St. Regis Salon offers a full range of services for both men and women, including manicures, pedicures, facials and body wraps. Don't miss their "Ocean Glow Facial", or "Reverse the waves of time facial." St. Regis is located between the mountain's two primary base ski lift's and within walking distance of all shops, restaurants and entertainment in Aspen. The hotel is only 10 minutes from the Aspen Airport, which we would recommend as your exit point from Colorado.
If for some reason you were not able to get the appointment time you wanted at The St. Regis Salon , we discovered The Aspen Club & Spa (Day Spa) very near the St Regis Hotel. They offered a number of treatments and day spa packages to suit your needs.
One of their "Specialty Spa treatments", called "Reiki", involves intensive therapeutic massage and meditation techniques to align the body's energy centers. Our male reviewer especially enjoyed this treatment after a hard day on the slopes! Our female reviewer really enjoyed the "Lymphatic Drainage Therapy". She experienced a decrease in cellulite and puffiness as well as relief from allergies, headaches and backaches!
The most important thing we learned is that regardless of whether you take a vacation in winter, spring, summer, or fall, there are always spas to allow you to maintain your good health.
