Staying at the Vail Mountain Lodge can be a life-changing experience, thanks to the 18,000-square-foot Vitality Center, which can address every conceivable health need. A panel of staff experts—including personal trainers, physical therapists, nutritionists, internal medicine specialists, and yoga instructors—work together to balance body and mind. Training takes place in the Vail Athletic Club, home to Vail's only indoor climbing wall, and top-of-the-line cardio and
weight machines. If you'd rather get outside, take the resistance-training class in the mountains. Afterward, unwind in the quiet, eucalyptus-scented spa, where a deep-tissue massage can hone in on trouble spots and a signature Dr. Harushka facial uses gentle, organic oils. Treatments are pricier than most in the area, but the staff is among the best.
