Up your heart rate and then take it down a big notch every season in Vail.
Play Then Rejuvenate
Find post-biking or après-ski bliss with a “Mountain Zensibility” treatment at the Four Seasons Spa. Held in a cozy suite, the two-hour, head-to-toe experience includes a hydrotherapy bath, scrub, wrap, hot oil scalp ritual and full-body shea butter massage.
Shape Up and Soak
Sweat through a session of the Vail Vitality Center’s high intensity intervals class, led by accomplished endurance athlete, Ellen Miller. Held every Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. (7 a.m. in the summer), the workout includes short bouts of uphill speed hiking or running. After class, enjoy an outdoor hot tub soak, followed by a stop at Yeti’s Grind. Clutch your coffee, or Bhakti chai, as you catch up with emails, a friend or good book, and watch this mountain town as it awakens around you.
