How to Dress
All you really need at Canyon Ranch is comfortable workout wear, outdoor and casual clothes, practical footwear and a hat.
Tucson is mostly sunny year-round. The summer months are hot, spring and fall are mostly temperate, and winter, while typically clear and bright, can be brisk. Nights are generally 20 to 40 degrees cooler than days. When packing, you might also consider that you may be hiking and biking at altitudes well above the desert floor.
Don’t forget your swimsuit and hiking boots!
Muscle shirts and bathing suits are not allowed in the Dining Room. Bathrobes are not allowed in the Dining Room at dinner time, and shoes and shirts must be worn at all times.
The Showcase Boutique in the Clubhouse carries exercise and leisure wear, accessories and other incidentals. The Ranch Store, just across the way, features a complete selection of Canyon Ranch logo clothing, Canyon Ranch Supplements, books and CDs, Southwestern-themed gifts, aromatherapy products and more. Much of the special equipment used in fitness classes can also be purchased at the Ranch Store. And you’ll find more wonderful spa products at the Salon and in the Skin Care department.
