Besides the mountains, M Spa at Madeline Hotel & Residences is one of the reasons people go to Telluride. Here, you can find a treatment for anything that ails you, from jet lag to après-hike soreness. Locals swear by the circulation-promoting Spirit of the Mountains massage, which includes an herbal poltice of lemongrass, kaffir lime, and sweet basil. Also a favorite is the exfoliating Emerald Sun Age Revitalizing facial—complete with a gemstone massage—that’s known to turn back the clock faster than candlelight and red wine.
