Though there’s a distinctly kid-friendly vibe at this slope-side hangout (full service kitchens give families room to spread out and settle in), it’s clear the Viceroy didn’t sacrifice style for utility. The handsome mountain residences, sprinkled with sophisticated accents like faux-fur blankets, motion-sensor thermostats, and rainwater shower heads, are the works of Amanresort alum Jean-Michel Gathy. That unfussy elegance is also on display at the hotel’s two restaurants: Eight K incorporates locally sourced and organic ingredients for its elevated comfort food, while Nest Public House, nestled between the slopes and the pool, offers more a casual pub-style experience and serves up over 50 Colorado craft beer varieties. Another creative example of its lean green conscience: the hotel swapped minibars with stainless steel thermoses and offers free refreshment stations across the property. But rest assured, not all the après-ski options are so sanctimonious: the 7,000-square-foot chrome-and-glass spa offers an encyclopedic menu of Native American-inspired treatments.
In the Area
Snowmass and its newly developed village, a growing collection of shops and restaurants, are a far more laid-back alternative to the glitz and glamour of Aspen, though the latter is just a 25-minute (free) shuttle bus ride away. But you’re likely here for the star player, the resort’s eponymous 4,400-foot mountain, littered with 91 trails, 21 chairlifts, and a dizzying variety of glades, steeps and half-pipes. If you’re summering here, outdoor adventures include hiking or biking through the wildflowers and Aspen groves of the Central Colorado Rocky Mountains—or exploring via hot air balloon, if you’re feeling especially flush.
How to Get There
Everything was great! Staff was accommodating and helpful at arranging transportation and making our stay memorable. Ski valet was very convenient and helpful to novice skiers. Room was large enough for 2 with view of mountain and fire place. We dined at Toro for dinner, breakfast and apres - all were good experiences.
Fantastic all around: staff, location, amenities, etc. Definitely check out the spa after a long day of skiing. Ski concierge and having a ticket office+ski rentals in property is great. The on demand car service was also fantastic
Overall, very good experience. Was misinformed that parking was $35 per night for my reservation. And room temp was too hot and uncontrollable. Windows would not open. Other than that very good.
Might be back
Amazing service from all the employees. From the front desk to the ski valet to the viceroy car service drivers. The spa services were especially good, and I would definitely recommend checking it out.
Rooms were very clean and had everything you need.
The Viceroy takes every effort to provide an upscale experience for guests. Leading the charge is the resident Executive Chef, Herb Wilson. My simple request to have some cheese shredded (along with a story of how I was going to impress my in-laws) was met with encouragement, additional supplies, recipe advice, and enthusiasm. I felt like I'd made his week, which is always a great side effect. The hotel has all the great ski-resort necessities and perks of being literally on the slope, but its service is what makes it a great place.
