Located close to the main gondola for easy access onto the mountain for the biking trails, and only seven miles from Aspen, the Viceroy has a superb location. The Viceroy is by far the best option available to guests in Snowmass. I love its chic style and modern design and, even from my brief stay here, I felt its comfortable residences truly offer a real home-from-home experience in the Rockies.
You can't fault the facilities here either; The excellent children's program runs throughout the summer, the spa is huge and offers a wide range of relaxing wellness treatments, and the gym is very impressive too, although it would surprise me if it gets much use in the summer months with so much adventure to be had outdoors!
