Golf, Spa, Tennis, and Yoga Options Thrive at High Altitude in Aspen, Colorado

Pristine Fairways, Courts with a View, and Relaxing Indulgences are Unexpected Amenities in this Mountain Town

What are the ingredients of the ultimate vacation? For most people, this elusive entity involves at least one of the following: playing golf or tennis, indulging in spa services, and more recently yoga! Aspen has ample, easily accessible offerings in all four categories, from its challenging municipal golf course to its numerous high-quality spa facilities. In fact, the serene mountain setting and appreciation for the good life makes Aspen one of the country’s very best places to catch 18 holes, get a massage, play tennis, or take in a relaxing, rejuvenating yoga class—or, if you can swing it, do all four.

 Get Into the Swing…

It’s tough to say which is more impressive about Aspen’s public golf course: its challenging features or its sublime views of the Roaring Fork Valley and towering, snow-capped Pyramid Peak. The course includes a driving range and a new full-service restaurant and bar appropriately named Pyramid Peak. (www.aspenrecreation.com; 970.925.2145)
