7 reasons why a mountain is the ultimate winter vacation
When winter hits, many people look to the tropics for a break from the snow and the ice. But if you’re willing to embrace winter, it’s one of the most breathtaking times of year to enjoy the great outdoors (and cuddle up by the fireplace afterwards). Here are seven reasons why a mountain is a wonderful destination for your winter vacation.
When you’re hitting a tropical resort, you’ll basically be lying on the sand. But when you visit a mountain resort, you’ve got a world of possibilities for new activities to learn. The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort & Spa offers skiing and snowboard lessons at what’s been called the ‘Ivy League of Ski Schools’, ensuring you’ll get a Grade A education. Plus, kids as young as three can start learning how to carve their way down the hill.
After a day on the slopes, it’s time to treat yourself to some serious rest and relaxation. The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort’s Stillwater Spa is located 6,000 feet above the ground and features an elemental theme – with roaring fireplaces, soothing massages with stones from Lake Tahoe, and beautiful treatment rooms with views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. A spa treatment will never feel as rejuvenating as it does after spending a few hours outdoors in the winter!
A ski resort is just as much an ‘all-inclusive’ as any tropical beach resort. Take the Hyatt Centric Park City, which offers ski-in, ski-out access for guests. That means no hauling your equipment onto a bus, and no long trips that make the little ones antsy. Plus you have access to an exclusive ski lounge and ski valet, ensuring a less crowded ski hill experience. READ MORE…
