If you want to enjoy some pampering after a hard day of skiing, book a treatment at one of Mammoth Lakes’ day spas. The Bodyworks Mountain Spa (3399 Main St., 760/924-3161, www.bodyworksmountainspa.com) located upstairs at the Luxury Outlet Mall, offers massage therapy, spa treatments, and facials, plus a wide range of combination packages to maximize your time and money at the spa.
The InTouch MicroSpa (3325 Main St., 800/786-4414, www.intouchmicrospa.com) offers a full menu of treatments with a focus on the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water. Using Aveda products exclusively, InTouch caters to spa-goers who care about what’s put onto their skin. A number of different styles of facials and aesthetic treatments are available. If you’re in town with a group, InTouch offers several spa-party options that get everyone great treatments at discounted rates.
Somewhat incongruously located inside the local Holiday Inn, the BellaDonna (3236 Main St., 760/934-3344, www.belladonnamammoth.com) day spa offers a crackling fireplace, serene setting, and massage and aesthetic services. Come for a hot stone massage, a mani-pedi, or a complete makeover with natural mineral-based makeup products. If you’re looking for romance, check out the couples side-by-side fireside massage. Yum!
