The only thing better than taking on the mountains of Vail and Beaver Creek — whether on skis, hiking boots or a mountain bike — is the massage you've earned afterwards. With targeted treatments, luxurious digs and nature-derived products, these ski towns' luxury spas are more than up to the task of pampering you. The Spa at Four Seasons Vail is a natural beauty, with stone walls, roaring fires and views to die for. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa specializes in high-altitude therapies; book the signature Spirit of the Rockies treatment for a local-mud body mask, a hot stone massage using stones from the Eagle County River and hot steam compresses inspired by local vapor caves. The gorgeous Allegria Spa at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa also focuses on area specialties. Here, massage oils, body butters and scrubs are locally handcrafted especially for the spa. The result? Intoxicating treatments like the Colorado Wild Rose Cure scrub, massage and wrap. The Bachelor Gulch Spa at The Ritz-Carlton also gets our vote. Soak in one of their signature copper tubs while enjoying natural ingredients like alpine berries, Douglas fir or blue spruce sap. It may be the ultimate Colorado spa experience.
