A bubbling footbath and nail decals are highlights of the Allegria spa packages for girls (ages 5+), while tweens and teens can try a 25-minute massage (with swimsuit). And adults can indulge in mineral baths and couple's suites. It's almost enough to make you forget the slopes.

Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, San Antonio, Texas

Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa, San Antonio, TX

Everyone can round up relaxation at the ranch-style Windflower Spa, retrofitted into reclaimed Texas barns. An All About Me massage rubs away school stress, and a #Nofilter Facial is geared to teen complexions. Grown-ups can sign up for a Rancher's Skin Care or Firm My Hide treatment, which includes a cactus gel rubdown.

Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst, North Carolina

Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst, NC

Come for the golf, don't miss the spa: Package up an afternoon of Mom and Me makeup, hair, and nails. And for the putters in the family, a Sportsman's Recovery Soak in a bath of pine, rosemary, arnica, and eucalyptus oils.

DEAL: Kids under 12 stay, eat, and play golf free.

Mohonk Mountain House, New Paltz, New York

This 30,000-square-foot spa-in-a-castle offers a full-service menu for visitors 16 and older. The resort opened in 1869, but we bet Victorian Era teens didn't sign up for the Texting Tension Tamer, a massage for shoulders, neck, forearms, and hands. Younger ones (ages 6-15) aren't left out with Me Too! manis and pedis.
