When to Redeem Your Wishlist

With a farewell to the chaotic, sugar-spiked days of summer, we welcome fall—a time of renewed structure, lazy nights, and cozy sweaters. Autumn has a way of making the world slow down and offering up time you didn’t think you had, so you can relish in the changing leaves and crisp weather and time for yourself. In hopes of helping you enjoy our changing seasons we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Wishlists and when you should redeem them.

When To Redeem Your WishlistDetoxifying Massage: With less barbeques and pool parties, and more nights watching movies and binging on Halloween candy, fall is a perfect time to replenish your body and purge it of toxins. Redeem your Wishlist for any of our multiple massage options so you can reboot and recharge before the upcoming winter.

When To Redeem Your Wishlist: Although we’d be hard pressed to find a time of year when a massage wouldn’t be warmly welcomed we suggest redeeming this the first few weeks of the new year. Starting the New Year off calm and collected will carry through your entire year. Prepare yourself physically and mentally for the year ahead with balancing and purifying massages.

When To Redeem Your WishlistFitness and Nutrition Training: During the summer it is easy to get carried away on tantalizing bar food and poolside snacks, but your body needs more sustenance than that and fall is a perfect time to whip out your cookbooks and start all over. Select one of our Fitness and Nutrition Training Wishlists so you can learn the science behind eating healthy and tips and tricks for how to adapt a healthy lifestyle of your own.

When To Redeem Your Wishlist: Although it would be easy to suggest redemption on January 1st, at Wishlist we have a theory that preemptive action is always better. It’s difficult to get out of bed on January 1st and go to the gym to run five miles— particularly if you celebrated the night before. If you begin your fitness and nutrition regimen early, say mid-October or November, you will be more than ready to conquer any New Year’s resolutions you may have.

When To Redeem Your WishlistWinter Activities: Despite the comfort of home, sipping hot tea before a crackling fire, sometimes the great outdoors beckons to us and sheets of white snow encourage us to explore. Our list of winter activities includes everything from snowshoeing to ice climbing. Peruse our complete list of winter activities and locations so you can find the Wishlist best suited to you.

When To Redeem Your Wishlist: There are so many options for winter activities that you by no means have to select simply one, or one time to go. Schedule various adventures throughout our snow-speckled winter to add a touch of adventure to your workweek.

When To Redeem Your WishlistCharming Getaways: We love the winter as much as any other Colorado born-and-bred, but we understand that sometimes the unceasing white glare of snow, and the cold, drenched boots you need to wade your way through in the city streets can wear on you. Sometimes the best way to enjoy a vast winter wonderland, is by retreating to the mountains where pine trees dusted in snow, and deer scurrying through an otherwise undisturbed landscape will replenish your love of the season.

When To Redeem Your Wishlist: Take a long weekend, perhaps Martin Luther King Day, to enjoy a charming getaway. Spend a long, lazy Sunday walking through snow-lined streets or drinking hot chocolate in a rustic lodge. Honestly there is no wrong time to take a weekend away, if you feel yourself stuck in a routine, or overly stressed, plan a weekend that you can enjoy and use to recharge.

When To Redeem Your WishlistPremier Getaways: Indulge in a high-end, incomparably luxurious weekend away with any of our Premier Getaways. Pamper yourself with world-class food, long soaks in a marbled tub, and nights out at the surrounding high-end restaurants and bars. This weekend away will leave you feeling spoiled and well rested for whatever the week ahead may hold.

When To Redeem Your Wishlist: Spoil yourself and your loved one with a idyllic and well-planned, Valentine’s Getaway. The best way to ensure you won’t be scrambling this year to find a dinner reservation or a bouquet of flowers is by planning ahead. Redeem your Wishlist today to ensure a perfect Valentine’s Day when it rolls along.

Top Five Colorado Winter Activities

Colorado seems to be fighting any references to spring with its perpetually cold weather. If there is one thing Coloradans can do, though, it’s take advantage of our pristine snow, icy air and blue skies. We know the weather may be weighing on some of you (we have to admit it’s weighing on us) but with the end in sight, we think it’s best to take advantage of these last winter months with some of our favorite snow sports.

Check out what made our list of Top Five Colorado Winter Activities.

Getaways

One of the best ways to enjoy the snow is by getting out of the city. There is something about a snow-covered scenic drive and freshly blanketed mountain town that makes us fall in love with snow all over again. Luckily, we have the best selection of mountain getaways so that you can simply choose the location and be on your way. Visit towns like Crested Butte, Durango, Carbondale, Breckenridge and more.

Perhaps by this point your wallet is fresh out of extra cash for a ski pass and you’re looking for a more affordable way to enjoy the powdery slopes. Relish in the brisk mountain air, and the fresh packed powder, by strapping on some snowshoes and exploring your favorite mountain landscapes.

Air Boarding

If you are looking for something slightly more adventurous, now is the time to try your hand at Air Boarding. This adrenaline-inducing winter activity will have you carving your way through fresh packed snow on your stomach. It will easily fulfill your dreams of being an Olympic luger or bobsledder.

Ice Climbing

For all you rock climbers out there, and we know there are a lot of you, if you’re getting antsy waiting for the weather to clear, eliminate some of your winter blues through ice climbing. It combines the technical skills of rock climbing, with our favorite parts of winter: the snow of course. Get outside and breath in that fresh mountain air.

Brewery Tours

Occasionally the best way to stay warm is with a great, locally brewed beer. Spend the afternoon warming up inside a brewery with a group of friends and enjoying a selection of Colorado’s finest beers. Sometimes the best way to enjoy the snow is by watching it fall while you’re staying warm inside.
