Travel After ski season, take those aches and pains to the spa

In fact, a spa treatment is so rejuvenating, it's tempting to sign up for one of the 70 classes offered at the athletic club down the hall. Honey is a centuries-old skin treatment that helps moisturize and fight aging. The treatment borrows ancient American Indian remedies by using a heated poultice filled with sage, pine and lavender. For example seeing river rocks listed in a treatment might have you thinking of torture methods from the Salem witch trials.

What happened when a Colorado mom let her 11-year-old hike ahead by herself

I was on a walk with my daughters at Pineridge Natural Area near our home when I got a call from a park ranger."Is this Chloe's mother?" said a stern voice on the other end of the line. But I worry more about my daughters growing up fearful of our awe-inspiring world and missing out on the benefits of being alone in it. Chloe has always liked to hike faster than the rest of the family, with just her thoughts as company.

Travel Steep skiing in Winter Park's Vasquez Cirque just a snowcat ride away

There is no beginner, intermediate or even advanced terrain; the cirque's trails are 75 percent most difficult and 25 percent expert only.Best of all, in the cirque you're away from it all. Those who frequent the cirque say that people tend to hike to the far chutes and leave the best snow behind on the headwall. Two seasons ago, Winter Park hooked up a 48-person sled to the back of a snowcat, and getting to the cirque got a whole lot easier.
