One of the most popular amenities in ski lodges are those party-size indoor and outdoor hot tubs, just waiting to soothe your bumped-up bones, lambasted ligaments, and quavering quads. Sometimes, they’re a bit too popular — usually between 5 and 6 p.m., when they’re overflowing with the simmering bods of fellow skiers. But if you time it right, slipping into the depths of a properly maintained tub with powerful hydro jets whirring away can literally hit the spot. Here are a few of our favorite Eastern aqua venues.

Tub: GRAND SUMMIT RESORT
Location: Attitash Bear Peak, NH
Why we like it: Outdoor tubs have powerful floor jets that create a volcanic effect.

Tub: COUNTRY INN
Location: Jiminy Peak, MA
Why we like it: Only slopeside tub in the Berkshires.

Tub: MIRROR LAKE INN’S SPA
Location: Lake Placid, NY
Why we like it: A class act with a fireplace and fresh flowers.

Tub: BASE LODGE
Location: Mt. Blanc, QC
Why we like it: A mere C$5 buys a swim and a sit in the tub.

Tub: SNOW AND CLAY VILLAGE
Location: Mount Snow, VT

Tub: AQUA CLUB LA SOURCE
