Maximize your time on the slopes and at your holiday soirées with these rejuvenating massages, body polishes, and spa treatments.
Everything dries out faster at 8,000 feet above sea level, and that includes your skin. The Moisture Drench is O2’s response to Aspen’s harsh climate. The 60- or 90-minute session replenishes skin at a cellular level with botanical serums and organic products from Naturopathica. Look your radiant best on and off the slopes with a face and neck massage featuring Cassis Ultra Replenishing Cream, a rich, deeply hydrating cream fortified with antioxidant black currant oil and Hyaluronic Acid. 605 E Cooper Ave., 970-925-3161; 500 W Main St., 970-925-4002
Say farewell to jet lag, altitude sickness, and overexertion on the ski hill and get the most out of your vacation with a Rescue Lounge treatment. The IVs are administered by a licensed nurse and overseen by a physician. Our favorite is the signature Hydration Cocktail, which combines a mixture of B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and Vitamin C in a 1/2 L solution. 525 E. Cooper Ave., Suite 206, 970-456-9477
The Aspen Club & Spa Bindi Herbal Body Therapy features a warm botanical full-body mask, gentle skin exfoliation, and warm herbal oils applied to the entire body during a 50-minute massage. The detoxification experience finishes with a warm towel wrap. 1450 Crystal Lake Road, 970-925-8900
Sometimes shiatsu and deep-tissue just isn’t enough for Aspen’s active lifestyle. Enter Aspen Vida Medi Spa’s Bodywork/Structural Integration Massage. This procedure is designed to treat chronic aches and pains by re-aligning the body with myofascial release, manual therapy, active release, and muscle energy techniques. 420 main St., 970-429-8350
It’s no surprise that one of Aspen’s finest spas has one of our favorite rejuvenating winter treatments. Remède, located inside the St. Regis Aspen, brings us The Rocky Mountain Ritual. Think full-body polish, aromatherapy soak, foot and scalp treatment, and a 30-minute massage with warm cream as the finishing touch. 315 E Dean St., 970-920-3300
