How about a nice, healing hot spring? Ease those weary muscles at the Hot Sulphur Springs Resort and Spa (5609 County Road 20, Hot Sulphur Springs, Colorado). The Colorado Ute and Arapaho Indians loved it, and so will you. This recently remodeled lodge spans over eighty acres, with sixteen spa areas and 22 mineral hot pools and baths. The resort also has a plethora of spa services, including massage, waxing, body treatments and facials. And once you're rejuvenated and relaxed, you may want to partake in the resort's more vigorous activities, such as cross-country skiing, horseback riding, snowshoeing, hiking and dog-sled rides.
Party animals, be warned: There's no smoking, drinking or pets allowed at the resort, and you won't find television or telephones. Your choice of accommodations includes basic motel rooms or a stay in the authentic 1840s cabin, which has a fireplace .
