With world-class skiing and snowboarding, hassle-free accessibility — 95% of all lodging is ski-in/ski-out or slopeside — and consistent sunshine, Snowmass, Colorado, is undeniably one of the best winter destinations in the country. In the summer, visitors enjoy fly-fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and many other outdoor activities. Plus, with the opening of the Base Village amenities, Snowmass truly has it all for groups of any size at any time of year.
Snowmass Base Village: A New Community Epicenter
In 2019, Snowmass unveiled its $600 million Snowmass Base Village investment. The Base Village Plaza has a bustling ice rink during the winter and a large lawn for playing games in the summer. New commercial space provides yoga classes, new dining options, the Collective game room, and additional retail stores. The Base Village is also home to the new Limelight Hotel and The Treehouse Kids’ Adventure Center, a multilevel child care facility. In the summer, the center is home to Camp Aspen Snowmass, where kids ages 12 and under can try age-appropriate adventures, and in the winter, it offers the Aspen/Snowmass Ski & Snowboard School.
The Limelight Hotel Snowmass
Meeting planners looking for new event space in Snowmass Village now have The Limelight Hotel Snowmass. Located at the base of Snowmass, the ski-in/ski-out Limelight offers a new 2,000-square-foot conference room, in-house catering, audiovisual services, and 99 hotel rooms. With the addition of The Limelight, Snowmass Village now has over 80,000 square feet of available conference space. In addition, the Aspen-Pitkin County Airport is a short 15-minute drive away from Snowmass Village, with direct flights to many major U.S. cities.
New Dining Options in Snowmass Base Village
The Collective Game Lounge, Mix6 restaurant, and MoxiBar are adjacent to The Limelight Hotel, with dining available upstairs and a free game lounge open daily with activities for kids and adults alike. The Game Lounge is a unique space offering amenities such as artistically designed pingpong tables, neon foosball, giant pin art, classic arcade games, a ski chair lounge, a mastodon mural, and even a ball pool shaped like Snowmass’ Ziegler Reservoir — home to one of the largest Ice Age fossil excavation sites in the country.
Mawa’s Crepe Shack, Slice Pizza, State 38, and Base Camp are all located in the Base Village, offering a variety of cuisine choices sure to satisfy any palate.
