My wife and I have had a long-standing commitment to how our skiing culture ultimately would evolve in our family: I get lost with the kids on the slopes while she loses herself in the relaxation of the nearest spa.
While the downhill bug thankfully filtered down to each of my three offspring, it has failed to ever permeate my wife’s winter aspirations. She always has been more than content to keep watch in the lodge while the rest of the family ventures into the outdoors. And now that the youngest has made her way onto skis, it has freed up plenty of time that my wife might have normally spent corralling logistics.
That has put her on a spa-sampling plan this ski season.
What follows then is a roundup of some of her favorite spas in New England ski country in addition to the ones that remain on her to-do list.
