You’ve hiked until your calves are burning, you’ve skied until you quads are knotted.
Now you can temper all that healthy stuff with an experience that's downright hedonistic.
Just down the road from the Blue Mountain Village is a forested glade—first red pine then a stand of birch—where the only sounds you hear are the occasional bird call and the gentle murmur of two waterfalls. You smell the aroma of wood smoke, you feel the pressure leave your body as soon as you cross the footbridge to the Scandinave Spa.
Not sure about the rationale: it’s inspired by Scandinavian spas—heat, cold, relaxation—and boasts both outdoor hot pools and cold pools. Maybe that’s why folks from Northern Europe are so tough.
But you can’t argue with the other feature here: They’ve got 13 massage rooms with a variety of treatments. (Five of those rooms are dedicated to couples massages.)
You may never ski again.
