The New Snowmass Base Village

Updated on July 26, 2010

Aspen Snowmass Base Village had undergone a complete overhaul to much of the village completely which reconfigures to a new level of luxury, convenience and world class amenities which are designed to astound and please the most demanding winter sports enthusiast. As construction continues, new and exciting restaurants will be added to the stellar lineup of Ullrhof, Café Suzanne, Cirque Bar & Grill, Up 4 Pizza, Gwyn's High Alpine, and Two Creeks Mexican Café.

Of course the fact that the village is being foreclosed should not necessarily affect the planning of winter fun in the area. It is very unlikely that the entire village will be mothballed, and if anything it should lower the prices being charged!

There will be a new events plaza that will host ongoing outdoor music concerts, an enormous two storey bar surrounded by patios and decks featuring spectacular scenery, and an expansion to 15,000 square feet in the Capitol Peak Lodge that is dedicated exclusively for conferences, including a new 3,200 square foot facility for meetings and cocktail parties.

The community aquatic center will feature a zero edge children's pool, hot tubs, a lap pool, and various water slides for that refreshing apres ski dip. The main arrival center for the Village features an underground terminal for up to seven transit buses at any one time, plus a 600 space parking garage, and centralized facilities for check in and all guest services.

The newly redesigned Base Village will also include more than 600 residential units, including many condominiums, a conference hotel and the sumptuous Little Nell Snowmass' 32 luxury suites. One of the most exhilarating new developments has to be the Treehouse Kids' Adventure Center, a phenomenal new 25,000 square foot facility that provides total care and entertainment programs for children two months old all the way up to 18 years of age. The Center is packed with thrilling features such as aquariums, climbing structures, mobiles, sound systems, reading caves and much more.

The offerings for the children will even carry on in the evenings. Snowmass will also benefit from over $35 million in lodging upgrades including adding 1,000 square feet of meeting space by the Artisan Restaurant at The Stonebridge Inn, a massive interior and exterior renovation project at Woodrun V Townhomes, various upgrades including the addition of two new grotto spas at Laurelwood Condominiums, a massive facelift for The Crestwood Condominium Hotel which includes new swimming and therapy pools, and thorough remodelings of The Snowmass Mountain Chalet, The Woodrun Place Condominiums and Conference Center, and Resortquest. The New Snowmass Base Village will consolidate Aspen's position at the forefront of the world's finest winter sports destinations.
