The Silvertree Hotel and Wildwood Lodge will close April 1 and reopen under the Westin brand on Nov. 15, said David Wasserman, principal of the ownership group that bought the Silvertree, the Wildwood and the Snowmass Conference Center for $42 million in June.
SNOWMASS VILLAGE REAL ESTATE – While heralding the pending transformation of the Silvertree Hotel into the Westin Snowmass Resort — which may include a New Belgium brew pub — elected officials want to ensure the construction involved doesn’t interfere with popular events this summer and fall.The Snowmass Village Town Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a construction timeline that prohibits noise-generating construction activity, along with certain right-of-way work, from “negatively impacting known special events,” says a memo from Town Manager Russ Forrest to council. Among the 13 major events council protected are the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Festival, the Chili Pepper & Brew Fest, the Thursday night concert series and the USA Cycling Pro Ultra Endurance event.
