Hedy Lamarr, the famous film actress, once said, “I don't fear death because I don't fear anything I don't understand. When I start to think about it, I order a massage and it goes away.” Way to go, Hedy! Imagine your next visit to the Yampa Valley like a massage for the senses. An invigorating massage, relaxing facial, or salt soak is always an excellent choice to increase your relaxation in Colorado.


There are plenty of spa getaways in Steamboat Springs, and as they are all very different, there are plenty of options for you to find your perfect spa match. Perhaps the most traditional offering is the Rocky Mountain Day Spa, based at the foot of the ski area and next to the Sheraton Steamboat Resort. Rocky Mountain offers singular services as well as 3-6 hour packages, like the Clear Mind package (lunch included along with the Hydrating Honey Wrap and hot stone massage and facial), Mountain Man package for our active gentlemen, and the carefully designed Belly Bliss for expectant mothers. Finish your afternoon with a glass of sauvignon blanc on the Saddles deck and float away staring at the mountain.

Active visitors to the valley might prefer a livelier day. Old Town Hot Springs, the non-profit facility situated over the Steamboat “mother” hot spring, is the perfect day destination. The hot spring pools outside are tiled, well-lit, and vary in size and temperature so each person can find his or her perfect soak. A pass gives you all-day entrance to the pools, so when you want to get your blood flowing again you can hop upstairs to one of the fitness or yoga classes. After an invigorating vinyasa, you can dip in the natural pools again, try the locker room sauna or get a massage. Old Town’s team of therapists offer Swedish, deep tissue, sports, Reiki, cranial sacral, and myofascial massages. If you know you’d want to enjoy all of these options, make sure to book the “Triple Treat” spa package which includes all of the above.
