We all love the rush of plowing down in the snow and cutting through the mountain ranges with cold winds rushing against our faces.
The thrill of rushing down the slopes when everything becomes blurry and adrenaline kicks in to make your heart pump faster and you just want to keep going! Ski lovers know the burning feeling in calves all too well. After an exhilarating day on the slopes, when the body is exerted and you are too tired to even want to lift a finger, let alone run a bath that lasts forever. All you could ever want at this point is to head down to the spa, ease into the water and rejuvenate.
