Those who do not ski headed for a weekend away with groups of friends or families filled with skiers will love the Keystone Ranch Resort. Featuring numerous winter activities besides skiing, a spa, gourmet dining, and luxury accommodations, there is plenty to do even if you never hit the slopes. Keystone features two villages that offer a variety of adventures like sleigh rides, horseback riding, ice skating, hiking, biking, and snowshoeing. Not up for winter adventures? You have still come to the right place.
Parents will love the variety of free activities available at Keystone. Everyone in your party will receive an Adventure Passport that entitles you to tons of activities at the resort and around the town of Keystone. Be sure to ask for your passport when you check in.
The spa at Keystone is one of the finest in the United States. They have created an atmosphere of tranquility and relaxation. The services include only organic products with indigenous ingredients and sustainable products. The goal of the environment at the spa is to soothe your soul, heighten your senses, and reenergize your body and mind. Spa packages are available and you can design them to suit your personal taste. Rituals begin with a process known as the Scent Journey which allows you to choose the aroma that will be a part of the treatments. The Ultra-Hydration package allows guests to cocoon in Shea Butter while having their scalp massaged with hot oil. This is not only good for your hair, it invigorates the blood flow in the scalp. Following the wrap, the shea butter is massaged into your skin with a massage customized to suit your personal needs. This process takes nearly an hour and a half and the cost is $155. Guests are invited to add an aromatherapy bath to this package for about $100 more. The Deep Hydration Pedicure is a great way to get your tootsie in shape, especially if they have been ignored all winter long.
The spa's Ultimate Zen feeling makes it feel like a true enclave. Guests must be 15 years of age or older. For safety reasons, if you experience cardiovascular or respiratory problems, it is recommended you move slowly, drink a lot of water, and limit the time you spend in activities like the Jacuzzis, the heated pool, and the steam room. The 9,000 foot elevation can create a feeling different from that at other elevations so be cognizant of how you are feeling.
If a delightful spa day is not enough pampering and indulging, try one of the amazing restaurants at Keystone. You can take a horse-drawn carriage ride to the Keystone Back Ranch restaurant or ride the gondola 12,000 feet to the Alpenglow Stube. These restaurants serve breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. Dining packages include a $99 package for two adults allowing you to enjoy a meal at one of Keystone's finest establishments including the Alpenglow Stube, the Keystone Ranch, or the Der Fondue Chessel, an elegant fondue restaurant.
If you travel with a family of skiers, but you shy away from the slopes, Keystone Ranch Resort is the answer.
