Related Colorado President Dwayne Romero said, "Viceroy Snowmass has been an unequivocal success including being named Conde Nast Traveler's number one resort hotel in Aspen/Snowmass. This season, The Residences at Viceroy Snowmass will be available for sale, offering the only wholly-owned real estate option located within a luxury hotel in Aspen/Snowmass. Among the numerous benefits to whole ownership at Viceroy are guarantees of availability for prime vacation periods, secure owner storage space for all the mountain toys, flexibility to place the residence in a rental program, and all the ease of a luxury hotel combined with a home-away-from-home."
"We are pleased to be bringing these beautifully designed residences to the market as the winter season commences," said Andrew Light, Co-Owner of ASSIR and long-time Snowmass developer. "Viceroy Snowmass has been an incredibly successful hotel, and we know there is demand for a resident experience combined with the benefit of luxury hotel services and amenities."
With panoramic mountain vistas, Viceroy Snowmass is situated in the heart of Snowmass Base Village at the base of Snowmass, the second largest ski mountain Colorado, just minutes from the bustling nightlife, art, cultural and shopping scene of Aspen. Guests of Viceroy Snowmass literally step out of the hotel and onto their skis or snowboard, delivered slopeside on Assay Hill by the hotel's ski valet. The Treehouse – home to the Ski & Snowboard Schools of Aspen/Snowmass as well as the Kids' Adventure Center – is located across from the hotel, a short walk or shuttle ride in the hotel's famous Luge, an open-air electric vehicle that whizzes guests across the Base Village to the main entrance of The Treehouse.
Widely acknowledged as one of the number one family resorts in the world and always heralded among the top resorts in the world, Snowmass' 3,332 acres welcome skiers and snowboarders of all abilities with seemingly endless beginner, intermediate, advanced expert off-piste terrain. New this season are 200 new acres of gladed-skiing on Burnt as well as the new $35 million Elk Camp Restaurant, located at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola.
The Spa at Viceroy Snowmass delivers a wide range of wellness experiences in a mountain Zen setting featuring a selection of holistic wellness experiences – from Ute Indian-inspired therapies to contemporary beauty rituals.
Viceroy Snowmass Restaurant Eight K features modern American comfort food with Creole accents under the direction of Executive Chef Will Nolan, a recent 2012 finalist for Food & Wine magazine's People's Best New Chef. Eight K bar and lounge is a stylish and happening spot for cocktails, featuring a new "Barrel-Cocktail menu" from Colorado artisanal liquors as part of the "Farm-to-Bar" program." The poolside and slopeside Nest Lounge and Café offers sushi as well as Asian-inspired cuisine with the largest mountainside vodka bar in North America.
Architect Jean-Michel Gathy designed the residences at Viceroy Snowmass as peaceful and comfortable retreats, with compelling features such as contemporary granite fireplaces, custom lightly grained oak millwork and galley or full kitchens featuring top stainless appliances from Viking, Wolf and Sub-Zero, offering owners and guests the comforts of home.
