Snowmass Village, Colorado
Urban panache meets mountain retreat
What it is
Sophisticated slopeside digs in the quieter Colorado high country.
What it isn't
A rustic lodge or redbrick classic in the thick of Aspen’s scene.
What we think
Like the rest of the Viceroy family, this Snowmass resort is stylish, design-forward and absolutely on trend. Set at the foot of Snowmass Base Village, the ski-in/ski-out boutique has incredible mountain views and easy access to Snowmass’s 91 trails. Designer Jean-Michel Gathy—best known for his work for Amanresorts—styled the 173 suites as family-friendly but sophisticated residences, eschewing the usual plaids and taxidermied critters for warm gas fireplaces, reclaimed timber, textured stone and embossed metals. It's the polished sophistication you'd expect from Viceroy, but with a localized sensibility. Two in-house restaurants focus on locally sourced and organic ingredients. Eight K—yes, that's how high up you are—serves mountain fare with accents from the chef’s native New Orleans (Colorado rack of lamb; shrimp & grits). Book in advance. Nest Public House, is a bright bistro serving comfort food for weary skiers as well as noshes for those basking in the LA-style poolside cabanas during the summer. (A third restaurant, Ricard, is a few minutes down the road in Base Village.) There's also a spa and fitness center.
You're here because
You want a more relaxed, family-friendly vibe than the scene in Aspen, but you don't want to sacrifice style, service—or slopeside convenience.
In the heart of the sprawling spa, you lean back in the stone and wood relaxation lounge, getting lost in the sound of falling water from the infinity pool’s waterfall. After a day of racing down the slopes, the Ute ritual that left your skin smelling of sandalwood and Siberian fir and your muscles utterly soothed was exactly what you needed.
In Roaring Fork Valley below Snowmass Base Village and about ten miles west of Aspen (a 20-25 minute drive). It’s five minutes from both the Elk Camp Gondola and the Village Express chair lift, and a short stroll to the village's restaurants and shops.
