Why Stay in a Ski-in Ski Out Residence

One of the biggest decisions we make when planning a vacation is lodging. Decisions are driven by budget, location, property ratings, amenities, and proximity to your favorite winter activity such as skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing. While there are some savings and concessions that can be made on a winter getaway, skimping on a slopeside location shouldn’t be one of them, and here’s why:

  • No need for a car. When you park your car at your residence, you may no longer need your car until it’s time to head home. Plus, you’ll likely enjoy underground parking or a private garage, so if it snows during your vacation your vehicle will remain snow and ice-free. Not driving? Simply take a shuttle for condo essentials, or better yet – have your residence pre-stocked with groceries before you arrive from companies like Resort Delivery (currently available in Vail, Beaver Creek, and Snowmass). Contact your concierge for companies in your destination.
  • A short distance. Walking in full ski gear to ski-lift is quite the effort not to mention parents tasked with carrying their children’s ski gear. With ski-in, ski-out lodging you can store your gear in a private ski locker (or ski valet) and you’re mere steps from the slopes. Voila—your ski day is off to a great start before you’ve made any turns.
  • First tracks. The early bird gets the fresh morning corduroy or untouched powder! For those who want to maximize the day, staying in a ski-in, ski-out residence will eliminate any additional time getting on the mountain.
  • Take a mid-day break. While skiing is fun it can also be tiring, especially for children. With the ability to ski to your residence, you can relax and refuel with lunch or a snack as most ski-in, ski-out residences will have a full kitchen or kitchenette. Perk – you’ll save money by not having to pay for the expensive resort prices.
  • Après on site. When it’s time to unwind and reminisce with a cocktail and comfy footwear after a day on the slopes – what better spot than your own patio, deck, or terrace? Most residences offer furnished, outdoor space and showcase brilliant views of the mountains and slopes. No more crowded, loud bars, and let’s face it—nobody knows how to craft a Moscow Mule as expertly as you do. Plus, a designated driver is not needed when you stay in.
  • Unparalleled location. Most ski-in, ski-out residences are located near or within an alpine ski village. Not only do you have the slopes outside your door, but you may be within walking distance to restaurants, cafes, shopping, ice skating, movies, live music, and more.

Before you book a ski-in, ski-out vacation rental, you may also consider if there are any factors prohibiting you from booking on the slopes. Do you need to drop the kids at ski school? Do you have a non-skier in your group looking for easy access to shops, restaurants, ice skating, and more? Are you skipping the dishes and planning on eating out every meal? If so, make sure the location you choose is ideal for your unique group.

This includes our employees and vendors wherever we can,” said Al Kenney, President of The Aspen Mountain Residences Condo Association, Inc.

After an exhaustive national search of many highly qualified management companies, the board selected East West Hospitality who is well known in the valley not only for their presence in Snowmass Base Village, but also known for their Colorado roots and their commitment and investment in their employees. “East West Hospitality begins managing the property today. They will report directly to the board, delivering on a culture that will be increasingly collaborative, entrepreneurial, and transparent. Partnering with East West Hospitality further establishes our investment in the community for the owners of this iconic Aspen property. I’d like to thank Hyatt Management team for our successful 16-year relationship and thank them and East West Hospitality for helping to make the complex transition, a very smooth 90-day process,” Kenney said.

“We are thrilled to welcome The Aspen Mountain Residences to the East West Hospitality family as our newest Aspen property, a prestigious complement to our growing portfolio of destinations that deliver exceptional experiences for travelers,” said Colleen Weiss-Hanen, President and Chief Executive Officer, East West Hospitality.

2020-2021 Ski Day Reservations

We want your 2020-2021 Winter experience to exceed your expectations, wherever you choose to spend it with us! We are excited to share details about the opening of ski season at different mountains as decisions are being made in a promising way. Due to the uniqueness of this year, Vail Resorts has implemented a reservation system for on mountain guests. With their plan in place, we’d like to share how significant it will be for you to purchase an Epic Pass in advance this season.Vail Mountain, Colorado

There are many reasons which make buying an Epic Pass so valuable; but this year a few of the perks are even clearer. To start, there are no blackout dates when Epic Pass holders have a reservation to be on the mountain. The ability to reserve your mountain dates gives you priority access to fun in the snow. Another piece to mention is the luxury of having Epic Coverage when you buy an Epic Pass. Epic Coverage is a refund system that protects your reservation and provides refunds when you become unavailable. Pass holders are able to reserve their choice of days before lift tickets are up for sale. Otherwise, below are some frequently asked questions which may provide you with more transparency on Vail Resorts’ plan as we approach the upcoming ski and ride season.

Why is Vail Resorts administering a reservation system?
• In order to operate the ski resorts in the safest manner possible and allow for physical distancing, the ski resorts will limit capacity on chair lifts and gondolas, as well as on-mountain dining facilities and other congregation areas.

What ensures my best chance of reserving the day I wish to ski or ride?
• Purchasing one of the Epic Pass products will ensure you have exclusive early season access through December 7th as no day lift tickets will be sold until December 8th. Additionally, as an Epic Pass holder, you will receive an early opportunity to reserve up to seven Priority Reservation Days for the core season (December 8 – April 4).

If I can’t make a reservation for my preferred dates will East West Hospitality refund my lodging?
• In the unlikely event that you are unable to reserve your preferred ski dates, East West Hospitality will not be providing a refund. In order to reserve the dates of your stay we highly recommend purchasing an Epic Pass and reserve your dates beginning November 6th.

I want to ski up to 7 days during my trip. How do I guarantee that I get those days?
• For Epic Pass holders, Priority Reservations can be made on a first come, first served basis beginning on November 6th. Up to 7 days can be reserved at one time for any resort for the “core dates” of December 8-April 4. For the most busy time periods we recommend that you purchase an Epic Pass product prior to November 6th. Then reserve your preferred dates.
• Beginning December 8th lift tickets will go on sale. Tickets will be resort and date specific, so you will have to choose a specific resort and the dates you plan to ski. These tickets serve as a “reservation” for your chosen date and resort.
• In addition, Epic Pass holders can reserve additional Week-of Reservations based on availability. These days are in addition to the 7 preferred dates above. Additional Week-of reservations can be made once your existing reservations are used.

I plan to ski more than 7 days or take multiple trips what should I do?
• Buy an Epic Pass in order to reserve your ski days. During the early November reservation period make Priority Reservations for the 7 days that are most likely to be sold out, for instance Saturdays or days over holidays, when the mountain experiences higher demand. Additional days can then be booked within 7 days of arrival for less busy time periods.

Is there a chance I might not be able to ski the days I want at the resort I prefer?
• Yes, there is a small chance that certain days will be sold out early, but those who have an Epic Pass and reserve up to 7 days in early November will have the best chance of attaining a reservation on their preferred dates.

If I book ski school am I guaranteed a reservation?
• Yes, your ski school reservation serves as your ski day reservation.

What if I plan for ski prior to December 8?
• You must have an Epic Pass to ski before December 8th and make Week-of Reservations within 7 days of your ski day. Because early season terrain can be limited, reservations will be limited based on the terrain available.

How many reservations does each resort allow each day?
• Although the resorts have not shared specific numbers, there will be very few days that will sell out for reservations. If there is limited terrain, this will impact the number of reservations available. Guests who purchase an Epic Pass and choose their preferred days in November should have no problem with their preferred reservation days. The amount of reservations may also be changed based on local government guidance.

Can I buy lift tickets when I arrive?
• All lift tickets will only be sold online this year, which means tickets cannot be purchased at the ticket window. Guests can purchase their tickets online beginning December 8th and then either have them mailed to their home or pick them up once they are in resort. Details can be found here: https://www.snow.com/planavacation/lifttickets.aspx

What is the difference between a lift ticket and an Epic Day Pass or an Epic Pass?
• Lift tickets can be purchased up to the day of arrival based on availability.
• The Epic Day Pass is valid for increments from 1 to 7 days during the season but must be purchased before they go off sale, typically in late November. The Epic Day Pass will allow you to make reservations for your preferred 1-7 days beginning November 6th.
• The Epic Pass, Epic Local Pass, and other pass products are generally for guests planning to ski more than 7 days and have a variety of restrictions based on your needs. The Epic pass products will allow you to make Priority Reservations for your 7 preferred dates beginning November 6th.

Is the Epic and Epic Day passes refundable?
• Exceptions have been made this year, we suggest you visit https://www.epicpass.com/info/epic-coverage.aspx for details.
If you have any other questions about the process, please see Vail Resorts details here: https://www.epicpass.com/info/winter-experience.aspx or call 970-754-0008

A Culture of Welcoming and Belonging

The events of the last three weeks, since the devastating death of George Floyd, have reminded us all that racial injustice is still very much prevalent in our country today. We write to share that we are listening to those in the Black community who are pained, tired, frustrated, sad, and angry and trying to understand what we can do as a company to improve the situation. Racism, discrimination, and acts of violence are intolerable. To be clear we will not accept racial injustice or inequality of any kind, and we commit to creating environments that are diverse, inclusive and respectful.

During this time, we find ourselves looking inward, both as individuals and as a company. Are we doing enough to advance the cause of anti-racism? Do we have proper diversity initiatives in place to improve the experience of our guests, clients, employees, and partners? Do we understand each other well enough?

The answer is: we have had some success but acknowledge we can do better. Setting big goals and achieving them is what our companies do best. “Embracing Diversity” and “Do the right thing” are core values, and we live by our values. We are committed to continuing to understand how we, as a company, can affect positive change including making sure everyone knows they have a voice.

Importantly, while the four of us will lead this effort to affect the change we also consider this an all-hands moment. We need your help, and we look forward to your ideas for, and commitment to, improvement.

Thank you for taking this in with an open heart and mind. We truly value each of you.

“I’m honored for this opportunity to lead the Eye Pieces team into the future and to continue building on what Dan started 40 years ago. I’m so happy for him and want to make him proud,” said Poupore.

All five Vail Valley Eye Pieces stores are currently open and are following all state-mandated protocols for cleanliness and social distancing in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Comprehensive eye exams with Dr. Dan Giovagnoli – famous as “Dr. G” – can be booked online. The Snowmass Base Village store will be reopening mid-June.
