What You'll Get
Like grizzly bear chauffeurs or a WiFi-enabled beard, mountain resorts combine rugged charm with modern amenities. Get back to nature from a safe distance with today's Groupon: for $398, you get a two-night stay for up to two people in either the Loft suite or the Cordillera suite, plus a $25 credit for use toward resort amenities (up to a $907 value) at the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera in Edwards.
Staking a bold claim atop its nest above Vail Valley, the Lodge & Spa at Cordillera flies the flag of luxury from the confines of its Alpine-inspired Belgian chateau. Wayfarers can face down mountainous vistas in their choice of two accommodation options, taking restive refuge beneath the Loft suite's cathedral ceilings or filling the multi-room Cordillera suite with the inviting glow of a Santa-free fireplace. Exorcised excursionists seeking out-of-room experiences can brush up fairway feats with access to three private championship-caliber golf courses designed by seasoned linksmiths including Jack Nicklaus, Hale Irwin, and Tom Fazio, or practice the construction and carving of snow turkeys on the slopes of nearby Vail and Beaver Creek. Cast about with the lodge's fly fishing facilities, or sweat out toxins in the 20,000-square-foot spa's assortment of exercise equipment, saunas, and hot-coal tennis courts.
Rejuvenated ramblers can also take advantage of a $25 credit to any of Cordillera's on-site amenities. Nosh-happy nibblers can enjoy a variety of feasts, including Mirador's ahi tuna poke ($12) or Grouse on the Green's traditional corned beef ($19). Put credit toward a custom green-tea peel ($80) or 30-minute Cordillera custom massage ($80) at the Spa at Cordillera. Or, indulge in a 60-minute fitness evaluation ($90) to suss out exercise sore-spots, set wellness goals, and run time trials in advance of three-legged race performance reviews.
