Quick Hits: Vail, Hit it and Chill

Ward of those down-season blues: up your heart rate and then take it down a big notch this fall in Vail.

Ride To Rejuvenation

Pedal through golden aspen leaves on Vail’s Grand Traverse singletrack, then find post-biking bliss with a “Mountain Zensibility” treatment at the Four Seasons Spa (fourseasons.com/vail/spa). Held in a cozy suite, the two-hour, head-to-toe experience includes a hydrotherapy bath, scrub, wrap, hot oil scalp ritual and full-body shea butter massage.

Shape Up and Soak

Sweat through a session of the Vail Vitality Center’s (vailvitalitycenter.com) high intensity intervals class, led by accomplished endurance athlete, Ellen Miller. Held every Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m., the workout includes short bouts of uphill speed hiking or running. After class, enjoy an outdoor hot tub soak, followed by a stop at Yeti’s Grind (yetisgrind.com). Clutch your coffee, or Bhakti chai, as you catch up with emails, a friend or good book, and watch this mountain town as it awakens around you.
