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
Great family friendly hotel. My girls 8 and 11 had a time of their life. Convenient. They make all the reservations for you should you need ski instructors or guides. Their rental equipment store is very helpful and patient. We loved it. We will go there every year.
Absolutely the BEST ski-in, ski-out in Snowmass. Considering I have a knee injury which makes walking in boots uncomfortable, The Viceroy is a wonderful help! From our front door of our room to help putting on my gear in Four Mountain Sports right there on the same floor! it is less than 100 small steps to the slopes! Love that convenience. Plus, stellar accommodations and food.
We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect from the rooms to every single member of the staff. Food was great. The location is extraordinary. We loved everything about Viceroy!! If your are thinking Snowmass, this is the place to be.
This is a first-class, luxury property with excellent ski-in/out access. We loved the ski valet service and the low-key yet fun scene at the hot tubs apres-ski. The rooms are due for a much-needed refresh this Spring - can't wait to see the new look. The common areas are beautiful, especially Toro, which had excellent breakfast and dinner. Service was top notch.
Hard to find any flaws. I rarely write reviews. This time the stay was absolutely perfect - location, hospitality, amenities are all top notch. I’d recommend this hotel to anyone exploring Aspen. Free public shuttle to nearby mountains is a bonus.
