handpicked antiques; guests in the Well House enjoy their own hot springs. Others can soak
weary bones in the old bathhouse or under the stars at the source. Join a trail ride into the
Rockies or fly-fish along a private stretch of the Dolores; you'll find every conceivable winter
sport, including heli-skiing. Farm-fresh meals and wine from the resort's vineyard are shared
over the Saloon's long table.
