After spending a day on the slopes skiing or snowboarding nothing feels better than a long soak in a hot tub (or a massage). And Colorado’s winter resort areas others both. But here we are concentrating just on the top hot springs where you can relax and soothe the soul.
Here are eight of the top choices for soaking away the sorrows of the slopes:
