Highline, a 116-room modern mountain resort, opened its doors in west Vail just in time for the 2019/2020 ski season. An elevated cabin-in-the woods aesthetic flows throughout the property, from the A-frame communal lobby and restaurant to cozy guest rooms and spacious loft suites. The interior features weathered woods, slate and leather accents in a palette of soothing neutrals and region- ally inspired art and fixtures. Highlights include 5,755 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space, a heated pool and hot tub, a fitness center and courtesy shuttle service to Vail Mountain. The hotel’s restaurant, Pivot62, has shareable plates and pizza from a wood-fired oven on the menu, while innovative cocktails fuel après ski at the property’s lobby bar, Handcrafted. Don’t miss out on the warm cookies that greet guests upon arrival!
