When it reopens mid-December, the Viceroy Snowmass will proudly highlight what so many here try to keep under wraps: a facelift. This one’s to the tune of $4 million and brings public spaces in the seven-year-old, ski-in ski-out property up to date with the latest luxury trends.
In addition to a reconcepted, rebranded restaurant (read more in this issue’s Eat & Drink section), the refresh transforms the lobby into more of a living room concept, including a 15-foot open-flame gas fireplace, a mural created by Anderson Ranch artist and faculty member Teresa Booth Brown, and Café V, a new coffee shop.
One level down, a brighter, lighter fitness center takes over the former Nest pub, replacing tables and chairs with state-of-the-art workout equipment (think Peloton exercise bikes and high-end Woodway treadmills). Nest, in turn, reopens as a poolside bar that also offers outdoor dining cozied up with heaters and blankets.
If you’re a hotel guest, take advantage of the new Après Concierge program; you’ll be met slopeside and whisked away into a private, heated cabana where your bathing suit, towels, slippers, and robes await, along with cocktails and small bites. Now that’s the way to end a ski day.
