Snowmass is dominated by condominium complexes, making this full-service hotel a much needed change of pace when it opened here in 2009. The modern, lodgelike look is perfect for the setting at the base of the slopes, and the motif carries over to the rooms and suites, sleek visions of contrasting colors and inspired design by Jean-Michel Gathy. The year-round pool terrace, complete with plush chaise lounges and cabanas, is the best in the area, and the ski-in, ski-out access to the slopes is as good as it gets in wintertime.
