dizziness, seek medical attention and go down to lower elevation for several days to acclimate.
- We do our best to have the hot tub serviced between each guest stay but hot tub is “use at your own risk”.
- Rinsing off before soaking in the hot tub reduces the likelihood of contaminants like lotions, oils, and beauty products from creating build-up in the spa.
