Destination Hotels & Resorts to Manage The Villas at Snowmass Club in Colorado

Destination Announces Third New Property in Three Weeks;
Adds to Growing Mountain Collection

Englewood, Colo. – Aug. 16, 2010 – Charlie Peck, president and chief operating officer for Destination Hotels & Resorts, today announced that the company would manage The Villas at Snowmass Club in Colorado. This management announcement is the third in three weeks for the company as Destination recently added both the Wigwam Golf Resort & Spa in Phoenix and Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego to its growing collection of properties.
“It’s been a busy summer for our company as we’ve transitioned a number of properties into our diverse group of resort and hotel experiences and we are excited to add yet another with The Villas at Snowmass Club,” said Peck. “We have a long history of success in Colorado and throughout the Roaring Fork Valley with The Gant in Aspen and numerous properties in Snowmass including Top of the Village Condominiums and the Stonebridge Inn. The Villas add another dimension of luxury to what Destination offers to its customers in the Snowmass area.”

From its origins in Aspen in 1973 with the opening of The Gant, an upscale condominium resort, Destination has grown to include properties in some of the most notable, world-class mountain resorts including Vail, Squaw Valley, Telluride and Stowe, Vt. to name a few. The Villas will be marketed in conjunction with the other properties in the company’s Destination Resorts Snowmass collection. 
“Destination has been very successful in managing its mountain properties throughout Colorado,” said Ilene Grossbard, president of the Club Villas Corporation. “We’re excited to see the company bring its formula for success to The Villas at Snowmass Club to help showcase the area’s year-round appeal and this destination’s distinctive offerings.”
The 78-unit Villas at Snowmass Club is located on the 18-hole Irish Links Golf Club and features spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom units that are individually decorated and furnished. Each Villa offers a gourmet kitchen, living and dining room for entertaining, a fireplace, a barbecue grill on the deck, laundry facilities and complimentary high-speed Internet access. Concierge service and daily housekeeping is available to all guests of the Villas.
Guests also enjoy complimentary access to the exclusive 19,000-square-foot Snowmass Club athletic center and spa with four pools, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, weight room, spa services and fitness classes. The Club features the Irish Links Golf Course, as well as 13 tennis courts and three dining options.
Group and meeting attendees also can take advantage of the Villas more than 19,000 square feet of function space. The Villas offer seven meeting rooms and flexible outdoor space to accommodate groups up to 200 people for business or social events.
The Villas at Snowmass Club is conveniently located within 15 minutes of the Aspen Airport, 90 minutes from the Vail/Eagle County Airport and four hours from Denver International Airport. Complimentary shuttle service is provided to and from the Aspen Airport as well as throughout Snowmass Village. Free shuttle service also is provided daily throughout the ski season to the Two Creeks chairlift, a convenient, less congested alternative to the Snowmass base area.
