Mardi Gras Celebration and Klug Properties Carnival Party

Posted on March 4, 2019 by Chris Klug

You don’t have to go to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras! Head over to Snowmass Village tomorrow, and be a part of their 36-year tradition of bringing Bourbon Street to the Rockies. Festivities begin with The Mother of all Ascensions Uphill Race at 7 am at the bottom of Fanny Hill, followed by parades and bead tossing in the afternoon. Wrap up the night with the Bud light Hi-Fi Concert and fireworks around 7 pm. If you need a break from the celebration in Snowmass, head into Aspen for winter bird watching at ACES and Aspen Historical Society’s Time Travel Tuesday featuring “Aspen Dogs, Tomorrow” at the Wheeler Opera House. If you are looking for something intellectually stimulating on Wednesday, there will be various physics lectures at Aspen Center for Physics and Aspen Science Center. Aspen Center for Environmental Studies is hosting its Wednesday evening Potbelly Perspectives with Hawk Greenway titled Eyewitness to Climate Change: An Aerial Perspective of Denali National Park, and guided art tours at The Aspen Art Museum. On Thursday, come join all of us at Klug Properties for an authentic Carnival party from 3pm – 6pm for some live music and Tapas at 776Divide.com! The snow is predicted to continue until the end of the week. Enjoy the fresh pow. Have a happy and safe Mardi Gras! What a week to be in Aspen!

This 2.6 acre lot to include the plans from KA DesignWorks for for a 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath, 4,245 sq. ft. residence with a 923 sq. ft. 3-car garage and detached barn. For a few ski-in/ski-out condo opportunities, check out 130 Wood Road Unit 341, Unit 716 and Unit 506.

End Of February Events In Aspen

Posted on February 27, 2019 by Chris Klug

February is coming to a close and spring is right around the corner, even though it definitely doesn’t yet feel like it. This week there is an awesome lineup of musical performances around town. At the Belly up, catch performances by awarding winning DJ DEADMAU5 (Joel Zimmerman), who will be preforming Thursday night, and Matoma, who will be preforming tonight. A winter performance by pianist Marc-Andre Hemelin will take place at the music tent on Thursday night. Don’t miss Ola Onabule on Friday and Saturday night at the JAS Café at The Little Nell. As always, there will also be historic pub crawls, ski tours, and Hotel Jerome tours. More snow is expected this weekend in Aspen Snowmass, which should make for an interesting Power of Four SkiMo Race on Saturday morning. Cheer on the competitors as they skin and descend 24 miles over 10,000 vertical feet from Snowmass Village to the Base of Aspen Mountain. Recreational and cultural opportunities abound this weekend in Aspen Snowmass. Enjoy the final days of February!

Tomorrow's Epic Powder Day

Posted on February 6, 2019 by Chris Klug

Aspen has and will continue to get completely blasted with snow until early tomorrow morning. Snow accumulation is projected to be anywhere from 12 to 18 inches in Aspen with as much as 2 feet on the tops of each of our 4 mountains. Snowmass mountain has received almost 27 inches within the last three days, with 10 of those inches happening in just the last 24 hours. With a base of 45 inches and 333 out of 336 of the runs between Aspen and Snowmass open, tomorrow is going to be an epic powder day. In addition to the awesome snow, there will also be guided tours at the Aspen Art Museum, Historic Pub crawls, Historic Hotel Jerome Tours, ACES: Naturalist Night, and a Performance by violinist Jennifer Koh at the music tent.  Road conditions are hazardous, so please drive safely tonight and on your way to the slopes tomorrow morning!

Snowmass Base Village Surges Into 2019 by Katie Shapiro

Posted on January 23, 2019 by Chris Klug

Since the ribbon was cut at the grand opening celebration of the long-awaited Snowmass Base Village (SBV) development on December 15, 2018, to a jam-packed plaza, the excitement has only intensified. 

In the two days that followed the festivities, the Aspen Times reported that nine deals closed — eight in the Limelight Hotel Snowmass and one at Lumin — amounting to $23.7 million in sales volume. Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty’s resident market research expertbroker Andrew Ernemannattributes the spike to “the psychological influence of Base Village.”

It’s a promising start to a much-hyped project that has been decades in the making, which while officially open for business, still has to put the finishing touches on its last project. Upon completion, SBV’s residential offerings will include One Snowmass with Inspirato along with the Limelight Hotel Snowmass, Lumin and Residences at Viceroy Snowmass.

Ranging in price from below $500,000 at the ski-in/ski-out resort-style Residences at Viceroy Snowmass, up to $6,300,000 for a penthouse overlooking the Elk Camp Gondola at Lumin, an SBV address accommodates every type of mountain lover. 

However luxurious each residence is on the inside (also armed with varying levels of amenities like a membership to the new, ultra-exclusive Snowmass Mountain Club), it’s what lies just steps outside each front door that is another major draw.

In the center of it all is an ice rink open daily from noon to 9 p.m. with complimentary skate rentals available to check out from a funky 1958 Airstream. Surrounded by fire pits, SBV provides a much-needed, year-round public gathering place, which will transform into an events lawn in the summer for outdoor concerts, a farmer’s market and more.

Fuel up for the day with a fresh doughnut from Sweet Coloradough’s stand or try The Crepe Shack, our beloved local chef Mawa McQueen’s third restaurant concept in the area. Limelight Hotel Snowmass is already headquarters for après ski with an extended happy hour and live music five nights a week. Also at the Limelight, you can’t miss the five-story climbing wall (one of the largest in the state!) encased in glass, making it a focal point of the SBV plaza. Dreamt up and executed to resemble sections of natural rock on Independence Pass by Boulder-based Eldorado Climbing Walls, it is available to everyone weighing 25 pounds and over. The climbing wall is $10 for 30 minutes and $5 each additional 30 minutes, with staff on hand to help you plot your way to the top. Four Mountain Sports in the Lumin building will have all of your gear and equipment rental needs covered whether you’re hitting the slopes or the Snowmass Bike Park.

And last but not least, the Collective Snowmass has immediately morphed into a community hub offering an ongoing calendar of programming and pop-ups featuring local businesses and nonprofits from a winter artisan market and yoga classes to kids camps and art workshops. A new bar and restaurant is planned to open later this year along with a new-and-improved Snowmass Discovery Center, which highlights the area's legacy where the Mastodon once roamed. Click here for the complete schedule of events through the season.

Whether you’re in search of the ski town vacation home or have yet to experience what all of the buzz is about, this winter in Aspen Snowmass is all about Snowmass Base Village — the ultimate basecamp for the entire family.

To take a tour and learn more, stop by the SBV Real Estate Experience office at the base of the Elk Camp Gondola: 110 Carriage Way (Unit #3104), 970.924.9100, allinsnowmass.com
