Don't miss out on the kickoff to a new era in Snowmass at the Snowmass Base Village Grand Opening Celebration on December 15, 2018! The Snowmass Base Village renovation underwent a a $600 million mountain-resort development at the base of Snowmass Resort, the largest under construction this year in North America. This project adds a new Limelight Hotel, residences, restaurants, retail, and amenities to Aspen Snowmass. The celebration will include a live band, ice skating, climbing on the new 5-story climbing wall, a pop-up holiday market at The Collective, music by DJ Naka G, tasty bites and drinks throughout, and fireworks.
The Collective will be open from 5-8:00PM with a Pop-Up Holiday Market featuring goods by Woodland, Holly Ann, Lululemon, Anderson Ranch, All Things Sweet, The Gibson Collective and Scout and Cellar. Warm up in the Collective Lounge, whose stylish furniture has been provided by Hayneedle, a leading online home and decor retailer.
While the main event is on Saturday, you’ll find special events and activities around Snowmass all weekend long, including entertainment and activities on Friday and plenty of opportunities to brunch and skate on Sunday. The weekend culminates with the grand opening celebration in the new ice skating plaza on Saturday. Join us to ring in a new era for Snowmass Base Village! Please dress warm and ride public transit!
