First Look at the Expansion at Snowmass

In the event you’re getting a little tired of the audiences at Breck and Keystone, there’s good reason to use your IKON Pass and head over to Aspen-Snowmass Ski Resort this season.

As of Saturday, December 15, the Snowmass Base Village is open for business–just in time for the hotel ’s 51st anniversary, and had an opening ceremony complete with fireworks, performances by local talents and a skating demonstration from Olympic figure skater Paul Wylie, one of other festivities.

The expansion at Snowmass is just likely to get larger, and while others worry that the newest additions at the resort will dissuade visitors from getting the trip to downtown Aspen for nightlife, Gunion reassures us that’s their mission.

“Aspen is clearly amazing with each of the background there and architectural personality. And the quantity of vibrancy and restaurant, commercial, retail there is phenomenal. We’re not looking to replicate this. And even when we had been looking to, we couldn’t. It’so impossible to recreate Aspen. Snowmass nevertheless has its uniqueness and personality that’so considerably different than Aspen, but very complementary. ”

To get Gunion, his team, resort and resort employees, they’re already planning for years ahead, but for now, they celebrate. Gunion says they’ve already accomplished a good deal.

“A lot of folks have been working for it for quite a while and it was great to see it all come together. ”
