W Hits the Slopes of Aspen


W Hotels Worldwide will debut its second alpine escape – and first in North America – with the W Aspen and The Sky Residences at W Aspen slated to open in time for the 2017 winter ski season.

W Aspen, formerly the Sky Hotel, will be situated at the base of Aspen Mountain and provide skiers the ability to ski right into the hotel.

The mountain chalet will offer 88 guestrooms (including six suites) and 11 W-branded fractional residences. The hotel will feature an oversized split level Living Room (the brand’s alternative to the staid hotel lobby), a 1,600-square-foot outdoor patio and a 12,000-square-foot rooftop bar and pool overlooking Aspen Mountain.

A full service ski shop will provide guests with equipment rentals and storage capabilities, while an 1,100-square-foot FIT (the W brand’s modern gym concept) will aid travellers in staying in shape on and off the slopes. The hotel will also offer meeting space.
