Nestled in the peaks of Colorado high country, just seven miles from downtown Aspen, the 165-room, LEED Gold–certified Viceroy Snowmass offers ski-in/ski-out lodging and year-round slopeside activities. With 91 trails and 21 chairlifts, the resort is a skier’s playground, complete with après-ski at the all-season outdoor pool. Summer offers the chance for hiking, golf, fly-fishing, road- and mountain-biking, horseback riding, and rafting, with instruction provided by on-staff pros. Inside, interior designer Jean-Michel Gathy used rich, chocolate-hued furnishings for the guest rooms and suites, complete with custom Italian cabinetry, Egyptian cotton linens, and gas fireplaces. Hungry? Modern comfort food is on offer at Eight K restaurant (with its 87-foot glass bar), or there’s Nest beer house and gastropub for casual Colorado dining.
