The 180-room Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch provides a unique setting for a mountain retreat. The resort was inspired by the grand lodges of the west and captures the essence of the surrounding national forest. The year-round resort offers unlimited activities with skiing six months out of the year, preferred tee times at two 18-hole championship courses at the Red Sky Golf Club and unlimited summer adventures such as fly fishing, whitewater rafting, hiking, mountain biking, nature tours and culture events. With 19 treatment rooms and a co-ed, rock-lined grotto with lazy river hot tub, the 21,000-square-foot Bachelor Gulch Spa is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after a day in the mountains.
