The first Viceroy to grace the base of a ski resort, the 173-room lodge opened in November to high expectations. After all, the Viceroy name conjures images of such glam spots as Palm Springs and Anguilla. But this hotel, which is currently in the process of applying for Silver LEED certification, embraces such green practices as offering free and discounted parking for low emission, hybrid and electric cars; a saline pool instead of chlorine; and stainless steel water bottles at check-in, eschewing plastic bottles throughout the hotel. Ski-out to the Assay Hill Lift, the Viceroy offers studios to four-bedrooms with gourmet kitchens, terraces and a restaurant with a display kitchen and an 87-foot glass bar. For amusements of the non-dining variety, the 7,000-square-foot spa has six treatment rooms centered around a meditation lounge with infinity pool and waterfall; sip a flute of champagne before your treatment and a cup of Jasmine tea afterward. An outdoor pool with heated terrace—a weekend hotspot with DJs and live music that's served by a roaming waitstaff from the adjoining Nest Café—makes après a no-brainer. $150–$2,841; viceroysnowmass.com
