Vail vs Beaver Creek for a Healthy Wellness Wind Down

Let me be clear, I did not grow up a skier. Before 5 years ago I had probably only ever been on Ski’s 3 times in my entire life. I did however grow up going to Colorado, developing a love affair that would pull at my heart strings constantly to escape into the Rocky Mountains. I’m also not a daring person, I prefer to play the strategically planned out game rather than the hurl yourself over and down a mountain without a care in the world about falling or crashing. But somewhere on one of these trips to Colorado I got myself on a pair of ski’s and if I’m being honest, I’ve never looked back. I would identify myself as a skier. I’m not great, but I’m also not horrible. I’m comfortable, confident, and enjoy the challenge, therapy, and solitude of whisking myself through the mountains. I try to ski twice a year, living in Texas has it’s limitations obviously. But Colorado thanks to it’s convenience both driving and on that direct nonstop Southwest flight into Denver. It’s pretty reasonable to pack up and go ski for a weekend. I’ve ski’d Durango, Wolf Creek, Winter Park, and Keystone a couple times (and it’s a personal favorite because of the night skiing offered). But I had never ski’d Beaver Creek or Vail so when an opportunity presented itself to go stay at The Westin Riverfront in Avon/ Beaver Creek, I jumped at the chance to get back on the slopes and to explore a new resort! The Westin is one of my favorite hotel groups because of their dedication to health and wellness for travelers. Whether it’s the Peloton bikes in the fitness room, or the New Balance workout clothes rental, there are NO excuses for you not to move…
