This luxury mountain resort provides a stylish home base for those intent on exploring the great outdoors.
Skiing may be the main area attraction here, but Viceroy Snowmass specializes in pampering guests in luxurious surroundings any time of the year. The primo Base Village location just seven miles outside Aspen proper lures visitors not only for its excellent winter sports offerings like skiing, snowboarding and sleigh rides, but also for mountain biking, hiking, fly-fishing, open-air concerts and other outdoor pursuits in the warmer seasons.
The LEED-certified accommodations range from studios to 4-bedroom suites. Interiors were designed by Jean-Michel Gathy and feature warm, bronze tones, as well as high-end linens, Wi-Fi, full kitchens, cozy gas fireplaces and private decks. Hungry? There are several on-site dining options. Guests can feast on fresh, Southern-influenced mountain cuisine at Eight K, relax over French fare at Ricard or dig into gastropub grub at Nest Public House. The Spa at Viceroy Snowmass (also designed by Michel-Gathy) soothes sore muscles after a long day on the slopes with massages, hydrotherapy and treatments inspired by ancient Ute Indian traditions. There is also a fitness center with Technogym cardiovascular and strength training equipment. More than 9,000 square feet of meeting and event space caters to conferences and weddings.
