I recently had the pleasure of visiting the new Viceroy Hotel in Snowmass. The hotel offers exquisite accommodations, the finest amenities, 5 star dining and exceptional service. Its environmentally responsible design and construction supports the Leed Silver certification. But the most amazing feature of the Viceroy Snowmass is the Ute inspired spa! After a day on the slopes relax and enjoy one of the incredible spa treatments and relaxation rooms. And if heading to the bar after skiing is more your style, you have to try a Mojito, simply divine. Look for your bartender wearing a kilt. This is my new favorite spot in the mountains. getaway to the new Viceroy Snowmass is a must. Please contact Anne@SnowVentures.com
to build your perfect vacation.

Earlier this month some friends and I hiked from Aspen to Crested Butte during the peak wildflower season. Although, we had a few hours of rain, sleet, thunder and lightning the sun eventually came out and the views were spectacular. Its not a difficult hike but it does take about 6 hours. I highly recommend this hike to anyone!
If you find yourself in Crested Butte, you have to try the Secrect Stash restaurant for the BEST pizza. Some friends enjoyed the famous Figilicious but my favorite is the KGB with chicken.

I have a great job in a great industry and have had the chance to experience more than once what is, forks-down, one of the best ski resorts for dining and nightlife--Whistler. (Oh, and they ski there too!)
But I do have to admit a bit of envy for those Hell's Kitchen contestants. Why? Well, because they are competing for a truly incredible prize--a head chef position at Araxi, one of Whistler's best known restaurants.
A sweet prize, for sure...but consider too that Whistler is playing host to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, which the Hell's Kitchen winner will have a front row seat for, and now you'll know why I'm green with envy, just like an undercooked brussel sprout. :o)

Keeping fit for ski season during the summer is easy with mountain biking. The balance you need to navigate down the mountain is similar to the balance needed to ski. And its a great way to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. I thought I was done with mountain biking after taking a nasty head over handle bars fall last summer while vacationing at
Sun Valley. But now that it is summer again in the mountains I can't wait to get my bike ready for some trail riding.

Last week I attended the Aspen Food & Wine Classic. Aspen has been home to the nation's most prestigious food and wine festival in the country for the past 27 years. Celebrity chefs and over 300 wineries come to Aspen every June to share their passion for incredible food and delicious wine. If you love culinary delights and wine pairings, the Aspen Food & Wine Classic is not to be missed.
