The Short Version: Aspen, Colorado, is known for its picturesque winter landscapes and commanding ski slopes. That also makes it a popular wedding destination for couples who want to celebrate their relationships. Viceroy Snowmass, a resort in Snowmass Village, provides visitors with a luxurious mountain experience with comfortable, modern guest rooms, an elite spa, and fine dining available throughout the year. Many couples choose to rekindle their relationships with seasonal activities, including biking and couples spa days. For its commitment to offering elegant amenities and top-notch customer service to make every stay memorable, Viceroy Snowmass has earned our Editor’s Choice Award.
Couples looking to rekindle the romance often plan a relaxing getaway to get back on track. That has become even more important as quarantines and social distancing measures have left many relationships feeling like they’ve lost that special something.
Aspen, Colorado, offers couples a variety of activities and picturesque landscapes perfect for reconnecting. Visitors flock to the mountain town for its snow-covered charm, outdoor activities, challenging ski slopes, and upscale accommodations — all perfect ingredients for a relaxing excursion.
Viceroy Snowmass is a luxurious and romantic resort that offers couples a quintessential snow bunny escape where they can leave daily stress behind and focus on their relationships.
Many couples also choose the resort as their wedding venue because of its atmosphere and ambiance.
The Viceroy Snowmass team understands that couples may need an active, pressure-free excursion to unwind. The resort offers specials and adventure packages designed for couples who want to keep their relationships healthy, fun, and sexy.
“We have a Fall in Love Again experience, and that’s in reaction to quarantines and couples who have spent one too many nights on the couch together,” said Whitt Kelly, Spokesperson for Viceroy Snowmass. “We set up a way to rekindle the magic and set up a date for each day of your trip.”
In recognitions of its commitment to helping couples celebrate their relationships with exciting adventures, thoughtful amenities, and impeccable customer service, Viceroy Snowmass has earned our Editor’s Choice Award.
The resort opened in 2009 and is part of the Viceroy brand of luxurious, chic properties worldwide. The facility in Snowmass Village was the first mountain property in the company’s portfolio.
Viceroy Snowmass has 163 units, ranging from intimate studios to four-bedroom suites, available for getaways. Many of its rooms include private washers and dryers. One-bedroom units have a den, and the larger suites also have full kitchens.
Couples can completely unplug and focus their time on each other, but the resort has plenty of high-tech options if they want some screen time. Each room has a 42” TV with streaming and app capabilities and complimentary wifi. That makes it easy to cuddle up and watch a movie at the end of an adventurous day together.
Guests enjoy complimentary transportation to and from the Aspen airport and Snowmass Village, where there are plenty of restaurants and shops to enjoy. And guests don’t need to leave the resort to ski in the winter months. Four Mountain Sports runs a Ski Valet on the resort’s third level and offers lift tickets, top-quality rentals, and a selection of ski and snowboard accessories and clothing for sale.
The staff takes COVID-19 health precautions seriously, and follows government regulations, demanding “hyper-attention to detail especially on cleanliness,” Whitt said.
The goal is to create a stress-free space where singles, couples, and families can connect with nature and reconnect with loved ones at the same time.
“We are on the footsteps on some of the trails and outdoorsy things,” he said. “We are the perfect location for a breather for people who want to get outdoors.”
The biggest draw, of course, is the location on Snowmass Mountain, a popular ski destination that is fun for both families and expert skiers alike. During the warmer months when there isn’t snow, the resort is steps away from some of the country’s best mountain biking and hiking trails.
“We had a fleet of e-bikes at the resort this summer and an adventure concierge whose job is to help people with them,” he said. “It’s new for people, but it’s good because you don’t have to be Lance Armstrong. It gives common riders a power assist to help them get around these mountain trails.”
Couples can also enjoy time at their spa to soothe weary muscles. It is designed with Ute Native American accents, including an antler chandelier, and has a creative and inviting menu of services. Couples can ski, enjoy a 30-minute foot treatment at the spa, and then continue their day on the slopes.
Part of what sets Viceroy Snowmass apart is its company culture, which creates an atmosphere of excellent service that gets noticed by guests.
“We are guest-forward,” Whitt said. “We want the guest to come away with a memory they will cherish, and that’s something they’ll have forever. Whether it’s a wedding, a business trip, a ski trip, or a vacation, we want it to be above expectations, and our aim is to surprise and delight.”
Snowmass Mountain is visible from most guest rooms at the resort. And with chic cut-glass windows and beautiful bathtubs, romance is high on the list for couples at Viceroy Snowmass. It’s no surprise that it’s a popular place for weddings, with accommodations ranging in size from intimate gatherings to large celebrations.
The resort currently offers a special package called the I Do & Anniversary For Two, which includes the wedding ceremony venue with unforgettable views and a complimentary two-night stay on the couple’s first anniversary.
The wedding portion of the package comes with a reception location for up to 50 guests, a one-bedroom suite for the bride and groom, and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label. In addition to the two-night stay, the anniversary getaway includes a 60-minute couples treatment.
“You can do a smattering of everything, and we have a robust team who handles the weddings — you pick and choose if you want us to plan it,” Whitt said. “You can even do a ski-in and ski-out wedding. That’s been done a few times.”
Couples can choose an indoor or outdoor venue for their wedding, with the ceremony and reception on the Vista Lawn, Pool Terrace, or Grand Ballroom — which is 5,600 square feet.
For couples just looking for a getaway to strengthen their bond, the Viceroy Snowmass Fall in Love Again package is perfect. One partner can work directly with the concierge to plan the ideal vacation and surprise his or her significant other. By working directly with the experts at the Viceroy Snowmass, there’s no pressure — no matter the season.
“And we’re looking forward to another summer where, hopefully, we have more freedom and safety and comfort,” Whitt said.
