Out of all of the other resorts in the area, the Viceroy Snowmass was named the number one resort in Aspen/Snowmass. A representative for the property announced in November 2012 that the hotel’s residences, the Residences at Viceroy are available, starting at $225,000 for a studio. The winter season ends in April for Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Buttermilk, and Aspen Highlands. As for now, the resort looks like a picture from a classic children’s storybook. In addition to the obvious skiing and snowboarding activities, photography, evening parties with food, drinks, and live entertainment.

Upcoming events include the ESPN X Games  on January 24 with over 200 athletes compete in winter sports games. Olympians Lindsey Jacobellis, Shaun White and Gretchen Bleiler will attend. The ESPN X Games are free and Aspen/Snowmass hopes guests and the public will celebrate with them during a concert beginning on January 26 at the bottom of Aspen Mountain.

Keeping the season lively at the resort, from February 8 to March 29 every Friday at 2 p.m. onlookers can watch the pros and novices alike perform ski tricks and perfect their craft. Anyone can register to show what they know. Registration is between 1 and 2 p.m. every Friday. Kids can compete, too.

The rest of  the season resumes with competitions and entertainment events. People who love this well-respected resort can have the luxury of extending their vacation by purchasing Viceroy real estate, which offers the convenient resort living with the comforts of home.  The residences feature fireplaces constructed with granite, full kitchens and easy to care for stainless steel appliances, and owners can keep all of the winter gear in one place during the off-season if they choose to leave their resort homes.

For visitors,  Viceroy/Snowmass offers a $1,000 credit for spa treatments, food and beverages  for people who stay seven nights in either a one-bedroom or a studio.  Typically hotel rates during the winter begin at $695 per night.
