After a day of thrilling skiing and riding down powdery slopes, there’s nothing better than a tranquil spa. As the sun sets behind the peaks and the adrenaline of the slopes begins to ebb, there's an opportunity to embark on a different kind of journey—one of relaxation, rejuvenation and wellness. Discovering the perfect spa experience amidst Utah's renowned ski resorts not only rewards tired muscles but also complements the excitement of a day on the slopes with a serene and indulgent atmosphere. Now let the unwinding take center stage at these eight luxurious resort spas in Utah. 


1. Spa Montage at Deer Valley

One of the more opulent spas on the list is the Spa Montage located at Deer Valley Resort. Feel like royalty as you step into the palatial pool area where grand columns, each intricately tiled, outline the serene pool. Oh and did we mention you’ll also get breathtaking views out the windows as well? Yeah, this regal spa will have you living like a true monarch. So go ahead, take off your ski boots, and replace them with your crown at the Spa Montage. 



2. The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge 

In Sweden, it’s a regular day-to-day occurrence to cold plunge and sauna. Here in the USA, although it isn’t ingrained in our culture in the way the Swedes do it, it is a trend catching on like wildfire. The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge is one of the best spas to capitalize on this trend. With their cold pool situated right next to the sauna, it’s the perfect combo to reset and rejuvenate the system. Also located at Deer Valley Resort, you can guarantee this spa experience will be top-notch luxury. 



3. Solitude Mountain Spa

Looking for a quaint, tranquil mountain spa? Look no further than Solitude Mountain Spa at Solitude Mountain Resort. Open year-round, you can enjoy the sauna, Inn pool, and hot tub before or after treatment. Pro tip, if your feet are feeling extra cramped from your ski boots or a hard day of riding, add their “Foot Focus” enhancement to any of their signature massages.

4. Stillwell Spa at Snowpine Lodge

Located at Alta Ski Area, the Stillwell Spa is a one-of-a-kind spa experience. This spa is located in a property that dates back to the late 1800s and has evolved from an industrial mining building, to now a luxurious ski lodge, The Snowpine Lodge. The Stillwell Spa is named after J.G. Stillwell who owned the old mine and general store. The spa embraces its history and uses original granite stone, a dimly-lit grotto with a plunge pool, and other historical materials around the spa. 


5. Waldorf Astoria Spa Park City

When you hear Waldorf Astoria, you know you’re about to experience extravagance. For those who don’t know, Waldorf-Astoria Collection is Hilton’s luxury brand which offers the highest standard of facilities and service. So you can expect no less when visiting the Waldorf Astoria Park City. Come relax and revive the body, mind, and spirit at this luxurious 15 room facility. 



6. Cedar Breaks Lodge & Spa

Cedar Breaks Lodge & Spa is a relaxing retreat located at Brian Head Ski Resort. Head down to the Dixie National Forest, ski some perfectly lined groomers, marvel at the red rock, and top your day off at this cozy spa. Enjoy this relaxing, laid-back spa experience equipped with both a sauna and steam room.

7. The Cliff Spa at Snowbird

One of the classic spas in Utah, best known for its outdoor rooftop hot tub and pool. The Cliff Spa will have you feeling on top of the world. The rooftop pool area overlooks the mountain and ski runs. So whether you spent the whole day on the slopes, or would rather watch from the “spa- lines,” this spa is the one for you. After watching the skiers and riders from the pool, head inside and chill in the solarium, or reset in the eucalyptus steam room.
