Aspen - snowmass mountain chalet vs lichenhearth
Has anyone ever stayed at either? Trying to make some choices for a trip this year.
They're practically right next to each other but they are very different. The Chalet is a "budget" hotel and the other is for condo rentals.
Thanks, ended up at the Mountain Chalet. Would definitely stay again.
Truly ski in and out, got to the front door during snow storm
Includes breakfast and lunch
Fridge, Microwave, coffee maker in room
Big rooms many look to include pullout sofa beds
Free Airport shuttle (better than trying to hop around on the bus)
Great front reception staff
Dogs! If you love dogs, this is a pet friendly place and it really lightened up people
Great lobby to hang out in
Good location (downhill) of Ranger Station - that's critical and near the mall
Ski locker but ok to bring stuff to room
Had hot tub, didn't use it though
Free coffee/tea/hot chocolate/water thing in the lobby
Actually a legit set of recommendations on a cork board about restaurants and things to do that wasn't just affiliate advertising.
A bit dated which makes for potentially noisy neighbors. We had some pretenders next door for part of the week that were quite annoying.
Snowmass depending on your point of view due to the distance from town. So each time you go into town it's a bus ride which is free but can get lengthy. Each of the other mountains as you guys know are rides one way or another but the advantage of something in town is that Snowmass is the far one away.
Costs seemed very good compared to other places especially given all the pros. Obviously that part varies like crazy. Anything under $300/night (after all the taxes and stuff) I think if splitting with people is very good for what it is. Over $400 I'd start getting disappointed, that's just a ton of money IMO.
Just had a dm asking about why dated = noisy. Just the walls are thin or whatever, clanking in the next room can be heard is all.
All times are Eastern (-4)
