The Limelight Hotel Snowmass in Aspen, Colo., officially opened. The new 99-room property offers a complimentary breakfast, après ski specials in the Limelight Lounge, live music, activities, a ski concierge and pet-frindly rooms.

The hotel represents the third property in the Limelight brand, joining Limelight Hotel Aspen and Limelight Hotel Ketchum (Idaho). Its opening is part of the Aspen Skiing Company’s strategy to further expand into the hotel business. In addition to the three Limelight properties, the company also owns and operates the Little Nell Hotel in Aspen.

“We are thrilled to bring this property to Snowmass Village and to our portfolio of hotels,” Alinio Azevedo, COO of hospitality for Aspen Skiing Company, said in a statement. “We are focused on executing our strategy to further invest in the hotel business as the owner-operator of high quality hotel assets in leisure destinations, including expanding beyond mountain destinations.”
