Snowmass’ answer to the Sunday pool party

With the opening of the Elk Camp Gondola and downhill biking on the mountain this weekend, summer in Snowmass has officially kicked into gear (pun intended). The rodeo and Thursday night concerts also have started, and in addition, the Westin and Wildwood hotels are introducing some weekly activities to liven up the mall this season.

One of those is the Wet & Wildwood Pool Party. Every Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., a DJ will post up at the Wildwood pool, where the Snack Shack will offer drink specials, as well.

The scene on June 23, the day of the inaugural party, featured mostly kids and families and was considerably less crowded than what one finds at the Sky Hotel on Sundays. Guests were taking advantage of the tubes and noodles available and cruising around in the sunshine. However, it portends to be a good spot for cyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts coming off the mountain to cool off and have a good time.

And for the hungry (or hungover), the Snowmass Kitchen in the Westin is open for Sunday brunch, complete with mimosas and Bloody Marys, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Snowmass Village now has a Sunday pool party of its own. Not only that, but the pool and hot tub will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, so locals and guests alike have a new place to swim all summer long. Get to the pool from Elbert Lane, above the Snowmass Village Mall.
