I spent this past weekend in Snowmass enjoying the quiet moments that off-season brings. Snow is just now covering the mountain tops and the ski season is near. The restaurants and shops are closed and there is a chill in the air… so quiet. Hiking up Divide Road and past the upper village area, I got the chance to watch the dogs of Krabloonik running, yipping and getting excited for another season of dog sledding. Does your type of getaway include quiet time? If so, may I recommend Top of the Village condominiums for you stay in Snowmass. These units are tucked in at the very end (top) of the village and offer direct ski-in/out access without all the fuss of base village busyness. Inside, the decor features good amounts of timber and has a warm rustic feel. Top floor units have vaulted ceilings with no one tramping on the ceiling above. Quiet.
