Seek cold comfort in the healing powers of whiskey, hot tubs and holistic therapies in this quaint Colorado ski town.
Home to the most epic mountain in Colorado and one of the biggest ski resorts in the USA, the quaint Tyrolean-style town of Vail is a paradise for lovers of snow sports. But if all those black-diamond runs and apres-ski parties have left you a little tired, there are plenty of ways to unwind. Hang up your ski poles and shake off your boots – here’s how to slow down and find winter wellness in Vail.
It has antiseptic properties, at least as many antioxidants as wine and a history of being prescribed as medicine – but whether you believe in the healing powers of whiskey or not, there’s something comforting about a hot toddy on a cold winter’s night. Swing by the 10th Mountain tasting rooms to warm up with a flight of whiskey, or buy a bottle to take home.
