Snowmobile + Hot Springs Weekend
Thank you RMAR for organizing our girls only “Pampered and Powder” weekend in Colorado.
We easily coordinated our flights from 3 different US cities into Denver International Airport then drove to Mt Princeton Hot Springs & Resort. It was an easy, beautiful 2.5 hour drive into the Rocky Mountains.
Our cliffside, 2 story log cabin was cozy, comfortably accommodated all of us, and offered easy access to the resort’s restaurants, spa & natural hot springs. We ate breakfasts & dinners at the resort’s Princeton Club. The views in the dining room are breathtaking, and the wine selection & cocktails are delicious.
The resort is a 20 minute scenic drive to RMAR’s trailhead. Clay provided us directions in advance, and he and Stan met us with the new Polaris snowmobiles. They even fitted us with warm winter gear for the ride: snow pants, gloves, boots, and helmets. We didn’t have to buy or pack any of this bulky clothing! After a brief but thorough instructional lesson, we sped down the groomed trail after our guide, Clay. He periodically stopped to check on us and to take pictures. We suggested adding a hot cocoa break at the top of the mountain next time. When we returned to the trail head, we left our sleds and gear with Stan. It was so easy!
After snowmobiling all morning, we drove into Buena Vista and had lunch at River Rock Kitchen. Highlights in Buena Vista included a walk along the Arkansas River, shopping locally produced items in a few gift shops, and enjoying a cup of cappuccino at The Roastery.
Mt Princeton’s Spa & man-made mineral hot springs are the rewards for a full day of mountain sports & activities. We met guests from across the globe as we soaked in one of the many hot pools. We intentionally tried different spa treatments and agreed each was excellent.
RMAR, this kind of weekend was a first for me, but it was a hit! I can’t wait to come back in the summer to try your Razors, Slingshots, and another good soak in the hot springs!
