Glaza Studio courses with movement. Live percussionists strike drums during Afro-Brazilian dance classes, hastening the tempo as students transition from warm-ups to folkloric dances. In capoeira sessions, teachers blend acrobatic and fight movements into a workout that makes the heart pound like Thumper's left hind foot. Some classes have a quieter personality. Vinyasa yoga, for instance, strings together a fluid sequence of movements. As participants transition from one pose to the next, they bridge the transition with calm, purposeful inhalations or exhalations. All classes take place in an expansive room that resembles a warehouse. Narrow planks of wood stretch across the floor, and rectangular beams brace the ceiling. Coating the walls, naturally distressed paint gives the space a historical vibe.

The Glo Run?s 5K fun run event always takes place at night, but it doesn?t seem like it. The course is lined with black lights and lasers, and runners sport glow-in-the-dark gear from t-shirts to sunglasses. On-course DJs add to the festivities, blasting tunes as the untimed participants run, walk, or dance to the finish line. Even more DJs await them there at the glow-in-the-dark after party, which lights up the night better than a raccoon that's swallowed a flashlight.

Towering cedar trees mark the edge of the slopes at Sundown Mountain, separating the wilderness from 21 scenic trails accessible by four lifts. Skiers and snowboarders also have access to two terrain parks, both of which are constantly coated with fresh powder thanks to a technologically advanced snowmaking system. The terrain park's rails and boxes might look intimidating, but even first-timers can enjoy a few runs on the beginner hill after an introductory lesson. If you prefer to heed the code-orange Sasquatch alert and stay indoors, two lodges atop the mountain peak promise cozy digs and picturesque views of the countryside.
