A change of scenery: The Residences at Viceroy Snowmass boast interior design with details in crystalline glass and recycled timber for a sophisticated yet rustic ambience.
While we’ve got lush tropical landscapes and breathtaking ocean views in South Florida, every winter many Miamians flock up north or out west to enjoy snow and mountains. It’s a different kind of snowbird; Miamians also want a change of scenery sometimes and to experience the thrills of a ski and apres-ski lifestyle.
Step in The Residences at Viceroy Snowmass, a sister property to Miami’s famed Viceroy Hotel, which also boasts residences at The Icon Brickell — both properties developed by The Related Group.
On Friday, April 26, at the ebb of ski season, Aspen came to Miami for some tropical sunshine as agents from Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty collaborated with One Sotheby’s International Realty Founder and CEO Mayi de la Vega to announce the launch of whole ownership residences at Viceroy Snowmass.
The cocktail party took place at the Fireplace Terrace at Viceroy Miami, which is the common area inspired by Yoo by Philipe Starck. Agents from both cities gathered to share information about the Aspen property, where just like in Miami, residents enjoy the convenience of resort-style living.
Aspen met Miami on April 26.
At The Residences, snow lovers can take advantage of adjacent slopes with ski in, ski out privileges in four acclaimed ski spots — Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk, with access to 5,000 acres of terrain and more than 330 trails. Ski valet and concierge services are available.
In addition, The Residences Viceroy Snowmass offers access to abundant resort amenities, including a wellness spa, fitness center, lobby boutique, kids’ club programs as well as meeting and event spaces.
For the foodies, the resort features the Slopeside Pool Terrace, Nest Lounge and Café, with a grill, sushi and vodka concept. Eight K Restaurant and Lounge features fine dining and entertainment.
In 2012, Snowmass Viceroy garnered the title of “the #1 resort in Aspen Snowass” by Condé Nast TRAVELER’s Readers’ Choice Award. Viceroy Snowmass is the first luxury Colorado property to be awarded LEED Gold certification.
Currently, Snowmass Viceroy is also ranked number 1 out of 17 resorts in Snowmass Village on Trip Advisor.
Units at The Residences are priced affordably — starting at $275,000 — and range from studios to four bedrooms with mountain views. Jean-Michel Gathy designed the residences, which feature finely crafted interiors and custom designed furnishings.
For Miamians who hanker for a luxury ski lifestyle in winter, a second residence in Colorado makes sense. Getting there isn’t hard, either — The Residences are just seven miles away from Aspen, where the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport is located.
