This season, let one of these getaway spas, voted top ten best for winter sports for SpaFinder’s 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards, be your very own winter wonderland. These ten spa resorts are a haven for wintry weather enthusiasts, where snow takes center spotlight. Thrill seekers can schuss the daring slopes (one property boasts a vertical drop exceeding 5,000 feet), while snow bunnies will feel at home on less strenuous terrains; guests can also play in powder sledding, skating, snowshoeing, and more.
Not a fan of the cold? No worries – these getaway spa resorts offer plenty to do indoors après ski. After a day outdoors, there’s nothing more relaxing than curling up fireside, sipping a warm drink, or unwinding with a spa treatment, some of them alpine inspired.
