Since 1965, the family-run Ski Haus has kept customers coming back by adhering to the family motto: “Make sure we keep a fun environment and give everybody a fair deal. They get a ton of stuff for their money and we stay in business for a long time." Patrons can still expect the same low prices and see the same friendly staffers’ faces year after year while shopping for winter gear.
Racks stocked with apparel by brands such as The North Face and Marmot, skis and snowboards by brands such as Atomic and K2, and a team of skilled technicians have earned Ski Haus accolades from Ski magazine, SnowSports Industries America, and New England Winter Sports Representatives, Inc. During tune-ups, technicians polish skis, stone-grind ski edges, apply hot wax, and repair bases damaged by treacherous slopes and sharp snowman noses.
At The Sanctuary Spa, visitors escape the hustle and bustle of the outside world with relaxing and beautifying services performed by a veteran cast of aestheticians, makeup artists, and massage therapists. Facials thoroughly cleanse and calm epidermal expanses, and microdermabrasion treatments and peels exfoliate away dead skin cells, wrinkles, and forgotten notes to self. The staff’s beauty-boosting repertoire also includes eyelash and eyebrow tinting, eyelash extensions, airbrush tanning services, waxing, and vajazzling. For a tranquil way to celebrate special events, such as upcoming nuptials, clients can also schedule private parties at The Sanctuary Spa.
The "five" in Five At Peace Massage Studio represents the five senses, each of which is systematically awakened during the spa's sumptuous facial, massage, and body treatments. The sounds of classical music, rhythmic beats, and crashing waves suffuse the treatment rooms and lobby with their calming, mesmeric influence, encouraging clients to begin the relaxation process like a starting gun loaded with aromatherapeutic blanks. A complimentary glass of tea, coffee, or wine fills the nose and taste buds as the liquids energize and relax in preparation for the spa pampering ahead. As an aesthetician performs decadent coffee- or chocolate-infused body treatments, clients breathe in the sweet and smoky aromas and unspool tension while their skin is exfoliated and plumped with moisture. Exotic massages spur achy muscles toward healing, including sports-specific therapies and a Thai herbal compress, during which the massage therapist applies cloth soaked in a warm herbal mixture to the joints to help boost mobility by easing swelling and loosening too-tight connective tissue. Aestheticians turn their healing hands to the face, where rhythmic cleansing can work to purge congested skin during the detoxifying facial, or bring back a youthful glow during treatments such as the caviar-and-pearl facial, a favorite with clients showing signs of aging or turning into a sea lion.
