Colorado’s mud season, known in other states as “spring,” gets a lot of flak. The ski resorts have mostly stopped spinning their lifts, the mountain bike trails are still too sloppy to ride, and hiking generally requires both the right gear and high-stepping over the mire. The weather? It’s as ornery as a preschooler who got the “wrong”-colored cup.

But what might seem like suboptimal conditions actually spell opportunity for the financially savvy. Now that the tourist hordes have left (at least until summer), businesses around the state are looking for, well, business. Local brands and retailers offer deep discounts on winter inventory. (Front Range–based Artilect, for example, has Nuyarn merino layers up to 70 percent off). Mountain town eateries that are packed on powder days, including Laundry Kitchen & Cocktails and Table 79 Foodbar in Steamboat Springs, now entice the lower volume of customers who remain with happy hour specials and 50 percent off entrées.

Meanwhile, a bevy of spas, outfitters, and hotels reduce their rates to fill their tables, boats, and beds. Below, seven ways to save some cash this spring (that don’t include rotting on your couch).

Pamper Yourself at Spa Anjali

Best for: Those in need of a little R&R

If it’s more than your checkbook that’s feeling pinched this spring, schedule a session with a professional massage therapist, ideally at a discounted-for-the-off-season price. Spa Anjali, located in the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in Avon, has just what you knead, er, need. Their limited-time offer Relaxation in Bloom applies to multiple award-winning treatments, including the riverstone massage and age defense facial.

What’s the deal: Reduced prices on a variety of services through June 21, including a 50-minute custom massage or facial for $129, an 80-minute custom massage or 75-minute custom facial for $199, and 20 percent off other services (excluding salon and waxing).

Ride Rapids with Performance Tours Rafting

Best for: Thrifty thrill-seekers

Spring snowmelt transforms Colorado’s waterways from a mellow flow into raging white water. So if you’re looking for an affordable adrenaline rush, consider booking an early-season rafting adventure with Performance Tours Rafting, which has been family owned and operated in Breckenridge since 1986. Their most popular spring routes, half- and full-day trips through Browns Canyon National Monument, navigate down the Arkansas River’s Class III (and higher) rapids with the Collegiate Peaks towering in the distance.

What’s the deal: Buy-one-get-one-half-off through June 21 with promo code “BOGO1/2.”

Book a Weekend at Aspen Meadows Resort

Best for: Wannabe bourgeoisie

Home to Colorado’s only Valentino boutique and Kevin Costner’s mega-million-dollar ranch, Aspen isn’t exactly a go-to destination for coupon clippers. That changes come mud season, at least at the all-suite Aspen Meadows Resort. After guests settle into their newly renovated room, they can sip a $10 tipple on Martini Mondays at the on-site West End Social or take the resort’s complimentary bikes out for a spin. Then leave the 40 aspen-covered acres via the gratis shuttle to downtown Aspen for a culture fix at the free Aspen Art Museum–or just enjoy a little window shopping.

What’s the deal: Colorado residents get 20 percent off on stays through May 31.

Golf at the Broadmoor

Best for: Green chasers—without a lot of green

As the world’s longest-running Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond Resort, the Broadmoor has had a reputation for excellence since it welcomed its first guests in 1918. That cut-above service extends to its two award-winning golf courses, which have hosted numerous national tournaments and challenged the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Annika Sörenstam. Test your metal (club that is) during their Unlimited Spring Golf Getaway, which includes classic accommodations in the central resort’s European-inspired rooms (upgrade options available), limitless golf for each person on the package, and a cart rental.

What’s the deal: Suites available at 25 percent off published rates through April 30.

Check Out Beyul Retreat

Best for: Getting off the grid for a good price

Co-founded by Abby Stern, a registered yoga teacher with more than 500 hours of balasana under her belt, the Beyul Retreat center just outside of Aspen beckons those in need of rejuvenation. Beyond the complimentary vinyasa flows and sun salutations held every Saturday, guests can cold plunge into the Frying Pan River on the property, relax in the cedar sauna, and take an “awe-walk” under the 16-foot-tall Forest Spiral art installation for their well-being.

What’s the deal: During the April off-season, rates start at $99 per night for main lodge rooms and $399 per night for one of the century-old (but fully modernized) three-bedroom cabins. Come May, snag a 15 percent discount for stays three nights or longer with code “WILDFLOWER24.”

Schedule a Stay at the Source Hotel

Best for: Those who don’t have a ton of downtime

Who says you have to leave the city for a little serenity? Colorado locals can score this steal on a staycation at the Source Hotel in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood through the early days of summer (just in time for rooftop season). True to the roots of its arts district locale, each of the hotel’s 100 stylish rooms blends the simplicity of Scandinavian design with bold accents of color, while still allowing views—whether out to the Rocky Mountains or across the Mile High City’s skyline—from the floor-to-ceiling windows to take center stage. While you’re there, be sure to hit happy hour at the Woods, the hotel’s rooftop bar, if the weather is balmy.

What’s the deal: Residents from Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico get 15 percent off guest rooms and suites, along with complimentary parking, through June 30.

Soak at the Springs Resort

Best for: Wallet-conscious wellness gurus

Check into your room and out of reality with a calming stay at the Springs Resort in Pagosa Springs, where overnight guests gain 24-hour access to 25 geothermal pools. The steaming waters offer more than just tranquility, however. Rich in minerals like zinc, magnesium, and manganese, the springs come with benefits like the promotion of healthy skin, fatigue prevention, and an immunity boost.

What’s the deal: Through May 16, take $40 off nightly rates Sunday through Thursday using promo code “5280.”
