The St Regis Aspen Resort is pulling out all of the stops on the slopes this season with the opening of picturesque après-ski spot The Snow Lodge. The restaurant, bar, and entertainment concept is the sister property of The Surf Lodge in Montauk, New York.
To bring The Snow Lodge Supper Club to Aspen, Colorado, Jayma Cardoso, the founder and creative director of The Surf Lodge, partnered with Stephane De Baets of Elevated Returns (Chef’s Club). “Chefs Club has always been more than offering a great menu — it’s about curating the best experience for our guests,” shared Stephane DeBaets, president and founder of Elevated Returns. “With that thought in mind, we have partnered with the Surf Lodge brand this season — the first time since our inception that we are bringing on a partner outside of just strictly the food and beverage arena. Snow Lodge will have elevated dishes but also music and cultural programming for a truly memorable experience.”
Designed by Kimberly Bevan of Bevan Interiors, the space is filled with jewel-toned velvet furnishings, heavy drapes, and cozy fireplaces. Art from local galleries and works by Snow Lodge’s artist-in-residence cover the walls. Artist and musician Brandon Boyd and photographer Brian Bowen Smith will be the first artists presented, followed by visual artist Heart Evangelista, Richard Phillips, Zoe Buckman, Tonia Calderon, Anthony James, and Brandon Ralph.
Chef Mark Connell (Casa d’Angelo) is in charge of the menu, which includes contemporary and classic Italian dishes, from ahi tuna tartare with lemon and Calabrian chili to imported burrata with grilled bread. There are also a variety of pasts available, all of which are made in-house.
Throughout the winter, The Snow Lodge will provide entertainment via a curate music series. This year’s lineup so far includes singer-songwriter Léon and Jake Wesley Rogers, with more artists to be announced in the coming weeks.
“We’re so excited to be back in Aspen,” Cardoso shared. “After spending last winter locked down, we wanted to bring people back together in an intimate setting and create unforgettable experiences. We think The Snow Lodge will be the perfect place to do just that.”
Last week, The St Regis Deer Valley unveiled a new transparent après-ski bar and lounge, The Vintage Room.
