There is nothing more relaxing than soaking in natural hot springs bubbling up from the ground while surrounded by some of the most majestic mountain views in the world. Here in Western Colorado, we are lucky to have access to these natural wonders and hot springs can be found in many of our riveres and formal resort areas that surround our training facility. There are several within 2 hours of Paonia, which makes for a perfect outing after class or for a weekend adventure. Check out some of our favorite hot springs locations – Avalanche Ranch, Penny Hot Springs (it’s free!), Wiesbaden in Ouray, Orvis and Iron Mountain.
