Experience Winter Off-the-Slopes in Vail

It’s beginning to look a lot like winter in Vail, Colo. And once the snow falls, there are fun-filled options for skiers and non-skiers alike. This year, The Lodge at Vail, A RockResort, introduces a “Spa, Savor & Snowshoe” package, so guests can work up an appetite while snowshoeing, unwind at the RockResorts Spa and then indulge in a decadent three-course dinner at the award-winning Wildflower restaurant.

The “Spa, Savor & Snowshoe” package is available November 20, 2009 – April 18, 2010 (pending snow conditions). Rates start at $423 per night, representing a savings of up to 25 percent.

Package includes:

*Three nights accommodations
*$300 credit to the RockResorts Spa
*Half-day guided snowshoe excursion for two
*One three-course dinner at The Wildflower for two
*Daily breakfast for two at Cucina Rustica restaurant

Rates are based on a three-night minimum stay and double occupancy. Taxes, resort fee and gratuities not included. Subject to availability and blackout dates apply.

The Lodge at Vail’s 11,000-square-foot RockResorts Spa (including a fitness complex and movement studio) opened in July 2008 with 11 treatment rooms, including a luxurious couples’ room with a fireside soaking tub for two, a wet treatment room, two facial rooms and seven massage rooms. The menu includes treatments such as the Dark Chocolate Mudslide and the Youth Recovery Facial, which utilizes caviar.

The Wildflower, a AAA Four-Diamond award-winning fine dining restaurant, serves an eclectic array of creative American cuisine under the supervision of Executive Chef Rahm Fama.  The Wildflower offers one of the area’s only tasting menus, which changes daily and utilizes seasonal fruits, herbs and vegetables grown in its own garden. Guests can choose from an extensive list of wines from around the world.

Situated in the heart of Vail Village, the AAA Four-Diamond Lodge at Vail offers relaxed luxury and impeccable personal service.  Featuring mountain and village views, The Lodge’s 165 rooms and suites are reminiscent of a fine European chalet with accents of mahogany and marble. The intimate alpine resort features two exceptional restaurants, as well as Mickey’s Bar, a Vail institution with live entertainment.
