The Sierra Nevada Resort Adds Day Spa, Changes Name

December 17, 2013

Local day spa opens in time for the holidays: gift certificates now available for The Spa at Sierra Nevada Resort 

The Sierra Nevada Resort has added a new 2,500-square-foot spa just in time for the holidays, announced General Manager Brent Truax. With the day spa addition – the first in Mammoth Lakes – the resort also officially changes its name to The Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa.

“We realized a need in Mammoth Lakes for a day spa,” says Truax. “The new spa will cater to guests and locals looking for a massage and steam after a good ski day on the mountain – or people with tired arms and shoulders from carrying their holiday shopping packages who might need a bit of pampering.”

The new spa at the Sierra Nevada Resort includes a rustic-luxe waiting room with juice bar, a steam and sauna, and four treatment rooms with fireplaces designed so guests can enjoy watching the flames while receiving treatments.  The spa will specialize in body treatments and wraps as well as offering relaxing facials. “Our spa offerings will include treatments that infuse local herbs, flora and ingredients we have in the Mammoth area,” says Truax.

Truax brings 20 years of spa background to the new services on offer at the resort. In addition to overseeing the Westin Monache in Mammoth Lakes as General Manager prior to joining the Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa, his past experience includes serving as general manager for The Peaks Resort in Telluride, Colo.; Canyon Ranch Resort & Spa in Tucson, Ariz.; and the acclaimed Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Skaneateles, N.Y.

“We are currently selling gift certificates for the spa – and we also have gift certificates for Jimmy’s Taverna and Rafters,” says Truax.
Truax adds that the resort is taking reservations for New Year’s Eve. Rafters is offering a four-course tasting menu from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. with the after party beginning at 9:30 p.m. Jimmy’s is offering a four-course tasting menu for $65. “Both venues are already filling up with reservations and we encourage revelers to make reservations soon.”
