A brand new retro-mod lodge with a sweet après spot, all steps from the gondola accessing Snowmass’s powdery peaks
Designers Carlton DeWoody and Eric Adolfson, the men behind the Wildwood’s funky style, studied ski lodges from the 1960s through the 1980s – what they considered the iconic decades of ski lodge design culture. The result is a hip new boutique hotel that's half western lodge and half 1970s rec room, with natural wood beams and light fixtures complementing blocky turquoise, blue and green furnishings, and Pueblo-inspired patterns. Special attention was paid to a large open lobby lounge and bar area where it's all about hanging out – there are board games and shelves lined with old pictorial history books and eclectic interpretations of traditional ski photography and mountain landscape paintings.
Bed & Bath
The retro design scheme continues in guestrooms, with a single strip of bold blue splashed across walls hung with wonderfully kitschy faux art. Digs are a tad small, especially when traveling with snow gear, but feature creative built-in ski and snowboard storage and a small table with chairs; large flat-screens and iPhone / iPod docks are standard. Beds are accented with western-patterned pillows atop silky soft duvets, while colorful curtains efficiently block light if you’re not rising early for a powder day. Frill-free Bathrooms get the job done.
Separating the two large lobby lounge areas, the very blue Bar at Wildwood doubles as the house restaurant, serving innovative pub fare (try the pizza with braised short ribs, mushrooms and spinach) and a host of New Belgium Brewing Company beers on draft. Fat Tire is standard issue, but don’t be afraid to dive into the hoppy Ranger IPA Imperial or the deliciously heavy Coffee Chocolate Stout (10% ABV!). Another bonus: The outdoor swimming pool is heated and remains open year-round, while two hot tubs offer post ski soaking under the stars.
