Many of us bemoan the coming winter and the inevitable snow, ice and cold that come with it. But winter can also be a time to shift our priorities and refocus on our health and well-being. The trick is to take time for yourself and to get in tune with your mind and body through activities that you truly enjoy.
Skiing is a great way to stay active during the colder months of the year. It’s a challenging workout and a sport that almost anyone can do. Skiing also makes a nice excuse to spend time outside, providing a boost for your physical, mental and emotional well-being.
And when you combine these benefits with the wellness experience of Pure Rooms, you have the perfect formula to stay active and healthy this winter. You don’t have to be an avid skier to appreciate a mid-winter getaway to one of these resorts that feature the hypoallergenic environment and peace of mind of Pure Rooms.
In the heart of Beaver Creek Village, the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa is a stately property that rises majestically above the surrounding slopes. The hotel offers ski-in/ski-out access and is adjacent to the ski school. An award-winning spa with an outdoor heated pool, five hot tubs and mountain waterfall make the Park Hyatt the perfect place to unwind and promote well-being in winter.
The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe is another ski-in/ski-out property for wellness-minded travelers. Nestled between the lake and mountains, the Ritz-Carlton features a warm and modern lodge atmosphere with a world-class apres-ski experience. Winter sports such as nordic skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice skating provide outdoor recreation for everyone to enjoy.
There are several Pure hotels out west with proximity to ski country as well as other activities to keep you busy this winter. The Hilton Salt Lake City Center is convenient to nearby ski areas and has a prime downtown location in this eclectic and dynamic city. Outdoor lovers will enjoy Boise, ID and Hotel 43, a stylish boutique hotel with a charming, independent spirit. The Embassy Suites Loveland has spectacular views across the Rocky Mountains and in New Mexico, La Posada de Santa Fe and the Embassy Suites Albuquerque offer travelers a variety of accommodations and winter-time experiences.
Consider a ski vacation at one of these exceptional hotels and experience the best of winter wellness. However you decide to embrace winter, we hope you’ll make your health and wellness a top priority this year.
