Spring skiing is here. The Rockies have had a great snow season; you are just as likely to have a powder day as a sunny bluebird day this spring. Head for the hills to take in the snow one last time. A mere 2-hour drive from Denver, Vail is the perfect place to play in the snow and indulge in good food. Starting the weekend of April 11th through closing day April 20th “Spring Back to Vail” offers various festivities, including free concerts from Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, STS9 and Steel Pulse and the annual pond skimming competition.

Colorado Springs is another great place to getaway this spring. A weekend at the Broadmoor Hotel will give you the calm you have been craving. Grab a few girlfriends for the Women’s Wellness Retreat May 1st- 4th. Spend the morning hiking and doing yoga, choose from a variety of day time lectures on the healthy living and wrap up your day with a cooking demonstration and a delicious healthy meal. The relaxing retreat will have you back on track in time for the sunny months and give you the calm you need to tackle work with a clear head.
