Best Weight-Loss And Fitness Spas: Mountain Trek In British Columbia
By Gary Walther
On the first full day at Mountain Trek, a tall, silver-haired figure slides through the side door of the dining room at 7:40, walks over to a shelf, picks up an old-fashioned alarm clock (the kind one winds with a key), and then plants himself at the head of the two tables, holding the clock before him, as if it were a memento mori.
Until now, the mood has been easy-going, chatty. We arrived late Saturday afternoon, Sunday we took a light hike up the road behind the main house (below), and in the evening, did a 101-weight workout in the gym.
The resort mood evaporates; silence descends.
