We stayed at the Lichenhearth Condo (through Snowmass Hospitality) and got a great online deal - 15% off plus 4 days of free ski equipment rentals for all three of us (just Google "Snowmass" and there are several websites to get special online vacation rental deals, but you can't go wrong with Snowmass Hospitality or StaySnowmassAspen - both are great.) You can also Google a Snowmass Lodging Map, which gives you the names and locations of all the properties, and whether or not they are ski/in ski/out (you definitely want ski in/ski out) and how close to the slopes they each are.
About the Lichenhearth:
-It's at the base of the mountain, within walking distance to Snowmass Village restaurants, the ski school, the main Village Express lift and the short gondola ride up to the Mall - great location! You do have a short walk with your skis in the morning, but you can ski in at the end of the day.
-There is a great outdoor heated pool and hot tub and our condo ...
