Why now Viceroy Snowmass? Last December, Snowmass Base Village acquired the Viceroy Snowmass, per Trip Advisor Snowmass Village’s No. 1-rated hotel. They’re just completing $3.5 million in renovations in its public areas, including adding a new Pan-Latin restaurant from Richard Sandoval, a new coffee shop, and a new fitness center, too. In the spring, they’ll be upgrading the swimming pool and hot tubs, and reopening outdoor slope-side dining space.
Snowmass Village is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The Colorado resort boasts 94 trails, the largest vertical descent of any resort in North America, and a new 5,700-foot, rider-controlled alpine coaster opening this December. Snowmass is operated by the Aspen Skiing Company. With one lift ticket, one can ski four mountains in the area: Snowmass, Aspen, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk. Snowmass Village residents have ready access to the town of Aspen’s famed high-end restaurants and boutiques at a generally much more approachable price. (Realtor Chris Klug of Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty covers this topic extensively in the third quarter market report posted on his site.)
With that in mind, we’re taking a look at the premium private ownership option at the Residences of the Viceroy Snowmass Resort. Luxury, yes, but with unit sizes and pricing in a wide range:
The cluster of four mountains offer a total of more than 5,000 acres of terrain and 330 trails. The area will be the site of Toyota U.S. Grand Prix, January 10-14, pre-qualifying competitions for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and the sports, musical, and festival experience of the ESPN X Games January 25. In the summer, residents here enjoy hiking, mountain biking, fly-fishing, horseback riding, concerts and festivals. You’ll find extensive detail about Aspen Snowmass on the community website. American Airlines has recently expanded service from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to area’s Aspen-Pitkin Airport.
The ski-in, ski-out Viceroy Snowmass resort and hotel features an abundance of warm, extravagant living spaces made with fire, earth, wood, and stone elements in beige and chestnut tones, inspired by the indigenous culture of Aspen. Famed luxury hotel architect Jean-Michel Gathy designed the spacious property to be a series of comfortable interactive areas, with restaurants, a year-round pool, and a 7,000 square foot spa and adjacent state-of-the-art fitness facilities. The Viceroy offers both rental and private ownership options.
Reclaimed timber, embossed metal, and crystalline class are utilized throughout in the interior to create an ambiance that is sophisticated and unfussy. The units have black granite tile flooring, gas fireplaces surrounded by black granite, custom cabinetry, and energy-efficient windows throughout. Living rooms are equipped with high-definition, flat-screen televisions and DVD players, and on-demand programming. Kitchen features include polished black granite counter tops, custom Italian light oak cabinetry, Kohler fixtures, and appliances by Wolf, Viking, and Sub-Zero. One-bedroom units and up have stacking washer/dryers. Select units have private sun-decks.
Residential options range from studio units beginning $225,000 for 377 square feet; to one-bedroom units starting at $447,000 for 550 square feet; two-bedroom units starting at around $1 million; to three-bedroom, three-bath, 1,643-square-foot units beginning at $2.249 million.
