All that glitters may not be gold, but today’s escape shines like the brightest of precious metals.

Give your life some lustre when you take in the mountain air at Silver King Hotel in Park City, Utah. There's no need to sell the family heirlooms for your trip to the Rockies. Choose among three glowing options: a two-night stay for two in an ample one-bedroom condo Sunday through Wednesday ($265), Thursday through Saturday ($292) until 5 September, or any day of the week from 6 September through 20 November ($260).

Each 800-square-foot suite comes with a resplendent queen bed and a plush sofa sleeper. The elegantly styled rooms feature kitchen, living, and sleeping spaces, with a wood-burning fireplace and a double-wide jetted bathtub.

Head downstairs to take part in the hotel's sterling services, including wi-fi and access to the fitness centre and game room. Go for an early-morning dip or late-night plunge at the indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub.

After marvelling at your digs, step on the free hotel shuttle to historic Main Street, less than a mile from the hotel. The lively street has been dazzling tourists and locals for decades, from its silver-screen stardom during Sundance to its bustling restaurant, bar and gallery scene. Attend acclaimed cultural events like the Deer Valley Music Festival, running through July and August.

Or venture beyond town to mine the many nearby outdoor adventures. Your hotel is located at the base of Park City Mountain Resort, an area gem that's a hub for warm-weather activities. Think alpine slides, ziplines, horseback riding, mini-golf, and hiking trails. For more mountain fun, visit the nearby Utah Olympic Park to ride the bobsled and watch Olympians-in-training perform aerial twists into the splash pool. Need more adventure? Check out any of the six state parks within 25 miles of the city limits.

Return in the evening for a bottle of wine or cider in your room, and receive 50% off up to two 90-minute cocoa butter body-wrap treatments at the Vie Day Spa. The session involves a relaxing massage with warm, organic cocoa butter, hydrating and soothing your skin — leaving you with a beautiful shine.

Perfect for your silver anniversary or golden birthday, this escape proves you don't have to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth to enjoy a radiant retreat.
