I just returned from an amazing trip to Colorado last week, where I spent 6 days on the slopes in Beaver Creek and Vail. It had been a while since I last skied, and I am not exactly what one would call athletic (or coordinated), so I’ll admit it was rough going the first couple of days, and every bone in my body definitely took a beating. Luckily, I had an appointment for a deep-tissue massage at Bloom Spa at The Sebastian, Vail’s newest boutique hotel. Not only was I impressed by the charming five-treatment-room spa but I also liked the fact that, in addition to basic services, the menu also includes a variety of unique offerings designed to help guests acclimate to the high altitude of the Rockies. For example, the 8150 Elevation Attunement includes oxygen inhalation, a high-altitude massage, and an oxygenating elixir, while the Morning Glory treatment combines oxygen inhalation, stretching, and a foot balm and sunscreen application to help spa-goers start the day refreshed and ready to hit the slopes. Although I only had time for a massage, it was just what the doctor ordered. I left the spa feeling so relaxed that I opted to take the day off from skiing and instead hit up The Sebastian’s Frost bar, where I put my feet up and enjoyed a pain-free cup of cocoa to top off my amazing spa experience.
