The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch in Vail Valley, Colorado

With its ski-in/ski-out Vail Valley location in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, this Beaver Creek resort is a favorite with snow bunnies. But we're fans of its off-slope delights. Fewer than 200 guest rooms and suites means a boutique atmosphere, while restaurants such as Wolfgang Puck's Spago ensure culinary pampering. As for other ways to indulge, there's no better place to begin than The Bachelor Gulch Spa. This 21,000-square-foot haven was inspired by its magnificent natural setting and features nineteen treatment rooms, a manicure-pedicure salon and invigorating treatments, as well as unique packages. One of the most notable is the seasonal Mountain Spa Morning, which includes a 90-minute guided hike, outdoor private yoga session and outdoor massage at Anderson's Cabin, an early 1900s homestead that is also the site of exclusive dinner events in the evenings.
