Can “adventure” ever be synonymous with “relaxation”? The St. Regis Aspen believes so. The mountain resort, which more closely resembles a 19th-century manor than a rugged mountain camp, features pampering amenities to help you unwind after a day of outdoor activities.
There’s skiing, or course, and hiking past icy streams and glittering lakes. But if you’re in the mood for an even bigger adrenaline rush, consider one of the resort’s three- or four-night hunting packages. The St. Regis will pair you up with a local master shooter who will customize a series of outings to hunting sites in the area. They’ll provide the guns and all the guidance you need to take aim, no matter your skill level. You bring a steady hand and your adventurous spirit.
When you’re done for the day, head to the resort’s Remède Spa for a massage (adventure sure can take a lot out of you), or just park yourself in one of the hotel’s three outdoor hot tubs. Afterward, it’s off to dinner at the Chef’s Club, which features menus created by a rotating cast of award-winning chefs. Then be prepared to do it all over again tomorrow.
Three-day, four-night packages begin at $3,756, available through December 11, 2013; reserve here
