Ojo Caliente, New Mexico (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa, the historic high desert resort located in the middle of O’Keeffe Country, is one of Northern New Mexico’s most desirable après ski destinations. New Mexico’s ski resorts received some of the best snow in the United States last year, so now is the time to prepare for the powder and winter adventures in the 2012 and 2013 season.
This 144-year old legendary resort is located at the center of winter paradise—51 miles from the famed Taos Ski Valley, 64 miles to Angel Fire Resort, 69 miles to the mountain town of Red River, 68 miles through the adobe city of Santa Fe to Ski Santa Fe, a mere 49 miles to Pajarito Mountain Ski Area near Los Alamos, and 57 miles to the Valles Caldera, one of the area’s best kept secrets for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. After an exhilarating day on the slopes, Ojo entices weary skiers to rejuvenate with a Ski & Soak package. Guest simply bring their lift ticket or season pass from any New Mexico ski resort from the 2012/2013 season and get 20% off entry to the springs or their overnight stay.
At Ojo, after a hard and glorious day in the snow, you can “soak your bones” in all four soothing, sulfur-free geothermal mineral waters that flow to surface in excess of 100,000 gallons daily. The resort is modern and fresh, with historic charm, in a tranquil and relaxing environment. Choose from 11 mineral pools, including three private outdoor pools with kiva fireplaces, and a eucalyptus steam and sauna to melt away the body stress. Combining a soak in the hot springs with a spa treatment provides the ultimate relaxing experience for both mind and body. The diverse spa menu offers a full array of restorative therapies, including nurturing massage and hydrating wraps, scrubs, and body treatments.
The Artesian Restaurant provides a casual dining experience and charming atmosphere. Chef Neil Stuart blends local flavors with global cuisine to create a delightful menu that ranges from seasonal Southwestern favorites to a variety of international dishes. Lighter fare, including homemade pizzas, burgers and green chile fries, plus an extensive selection of local and imported wine and beer are available in the Wine Bar & Lounge.
Lodging options range from the Historic Hotel to charming cottages, enchanting suites with kiva fireplaces, and private homes. The Springs’ diverse landscape ranges from the lush river valley to stunning high dessert mesas – all of which contain numerous hiking and biking trails. The more adventurous will enjoy over 15 miles of newly mapped mountain biking trails plus a more level 2-mile Bosque River Loop.
Ski, Soak and Stay at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort & Spa: Bring your lift ticket or season pass from any New Mexico ski resort and get 20% off Springs’ entry or any lodging unit (one discount per person).
