At Sophia's Nails, a cast of cuticle curators bathe and hand-paint nails with a stylish stockpile of brand-name products. During the classic pedicure, feet plunge into warm water before an aesthetician trims and shapes digit tips and whisks away calluses. A skin-smoothing cuticle treatment with exfoliation is followed by a massage and concluding coats of polish, bestowing feet with the confidence to strut about town in saran-wrap sandals.
Located at Alta?s Rustler Lodge, Rustler Spa serves as a pampering retreat, whether you've been hitting the ski slopes or merely hitting the hot cocoa. Indulge in a deep-tissue or Swedish massage that can be enhanced with heated, ocean-tumbled stones or body butters for deep hydration. Spa packages such as the Alpine Retreat include a soothing therapeutic massage coupled with a body treatment of choice; a ski-boot soother pampers tired feet with a warm mud treatment and a foot massage.
It's been more than six decades since Stein Eriksen won gold at the 1952 Oslo Olympic Winter Games, but the famed skier still influences the sport, especially at Stein Eriksen Lodge. Located halfway up the mountains, the resort serves as an active tribute to Mr. Eriksen's career. The thrills are fast, with skiers soaring down slopes like delicious rocket popsicles, pausing only briefly to take in the scenery: rolling mountainsides and vibrant pine trees in every direction.
Something different happens within the onsite spa, however. From the outside, its vaulted ceilings and cobbled stone exterior make it look like a quintessential European ski lodge. The 23,000-square-foot interior, however, seems to exist on another plane. Time slows down, and the world outside melts into an oasis of massages, facials, and pedicures. A crackling fireplace casts soft light over an exclusive relaxation suite, which connects to two couple's rooms with private showers and baths. Here, massage therapists and their nimble fingers can knead muscles as paramours relax side by side.
Not surprisingly, many other services—doled out in 16 additional treatment rooms—focus on the effects of elevation. The High Altitude Relief Package combines three hours of massage, hydrating treatments, and aromatherapy specifically designed for living in thin air. Additional spa areas focus on the aesthetic. Mani-pedi stations pamper hands and feet, while an onsite salon sees stylists snipping hair and creating dynamic highlights.
For lodge guests, the spa team happily brings their services right into a room or suite. There are still plenty of reasons to venture outside, however. Every spa treatment grants complimentary access to the sauna, a heated outdoor pool, and many other amenities that helped The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge earn a five-star rating from Forbes Travel Guide.
