Expert Review

November 2009 marked the opening of Snowmass Village's latest showpiece: the Viceroy Snowmass hotel. The 173-room resort represents a novel venture for the Viceroy brand, which previously cropped up in strictly sunshiney spots (Southern California, Miami, Mexico, and Anguilla). Upon entering Viceroy Snowmass, one of the first things a visitor notices is a glass bar that starts in the lobby before zooming into a lounge, 87 feet later. Outside sits a heated pool with a chairlift sweeping overhead; nearby, guests can roast s'mores in an alfresco lounge. Belgian designer Jean-Michel Gathy designed the interiors using a Rockies palette of reclaimed timber and heavy stone. The slick yet cozy lodgings range from studios to four-bedroom suites and come with kitchens, decks, and glass-fronted gas fireplaces. And what gives the Viceroy an edge on its counterparts? For one, it's ski-in, ski-out (only Aspen's Little Nell can claim the same). The resort also hosts a full spa: Treatments range from the traditional, with techniques inspired by the Ute Indian tribe of southwestern Colorado, to the modern, with facials that hydrate using hyperbaric oxygen.
