Spa Experience Aspen kicks off today in the Aspen Town Center. Presented by SpaFinder (a global spa resource), Spa Experience allows participants to indulge in demonstrations and treatments from spas in Vietnam, Czechoslovakia, France and Mexico, as well as all over the United States. Aspen Club & Spa will offer make-up color match and skin analysis; Red Mountain Spa will give out blackberry hand massages; and you can experience Thai massages by experts from the Himalayas and Vietnam. Award-winning Canyon Ranch chef Scott Uehlein, from Tucson, will give out cooking tips and tastings while you sip on merlot from Red Rock Winery. And the list of indulgences goes on and on.
And now for the best part: Spa Experience Aspen is free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow; VIP passes, which grant holders private access to all spa treatments from 9 to 11 a.m., plus a gift bag and retail discounts good throughout the year, are $100 for one day or $175 for the weekend.
