Jackson Hole's Snow King Resort Completes Multi-Million Dollar Room Remodel

Beloved Wyoming Resort's 203 Guest Accommodations Sport a Fresh Vibe While Still Honoring Its Western Roots

USA, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. September 23, 2020

Nestled at the base of Snow King Mountain and considered one of Jackson's premier destination resorts with Instagram-worthy scenic views, Snow King Resort recently completed an extensive $6 million remodel to the property's 203 guest rooms and suites. General Manager Gregg Fracassa made the announcement.

The recent transformation, which commenced in October 2019 and completed in June 2020, showcases a completely new design that included a refreshed color palette that is woven throughout the fabric choices and wall color, the addition of upgraded furniture and surface finishes, carefully chosen artwork that reflects the unique character of the valley, remodeled bathrooms and upgraded amenities.

"We're thrilled to unveil what is a major transformation to Snow King's guest accommodations," said Fracassa. "The enhancements still embrace the rich western heritage of the property and the destination, while adding a more contemporary, warm and inviting ‘at home' feel."

PCL Design, based out of Vancouver, BC, Canada, was the interior design firm responsible for reimagining an updated vision for the accommodations. "The organic architecture of the resort is reflected in its use of wood, stone and metal accents throughout the property," said Scott Parry, owner and head interior designer of PCL. "The core of our approach was to select a color palette that would feel comfortable in cold winter months and warm summer days. Hence, our theme of Oats and Iron sprang to life."

The concept plays homage to the region in that oats represent fodder for the ranch horses and rough-woven canvas feed sacks. Iron is found in cowboy spurs and branding irons, representing the indomitable spirit of the founding pioneers. As a result, according to Parry, by blending the colors of warm oats and cool iron together, the color of weathered fences on the range emerged. Hence, the wood finish on the new guestroom furnishings, evokes wooden split rails yet is smooth to the touch yet while the furniture style provides a clean, straight-line, crisp appearance. Iron accents are sprinkled throughout the rooms and can even be seen in the base of the desk lamps. Wyoming's brilliant blue sky was chosen for the accent color which was used in varying degrees of tone and texture in both fabrics and accent walls. Blackout curtains, in a silver-grey fabric with a slight sheen, adorn the sliding glass patio and balcony doors, adding a textural balance to those rooms with existing brick walls while reflecting the light back into the room during winter months.

Carefully chosen artwork introduces a touch of whimsical character to the rooms, playing off of Jackson's summer and winter seasons, while warm tonal triptychs of wranglers on horseback and vintage in style, offer a reminder that modern day cowboys still have a treasured and lasting presence in Jackson Hole.

Remodeled bathrooms combine contemporary clean lines with warm, wood plank flooring and simple, open vanities of rustic-washed wood and granite countertops with nickel brushed faucets, walk-in showers with Italian tile and floor-to- ceiling sliding glass doors. Guests can choose from king accommodations with walk-in showers or double queen accommodations with a tub/shower combination.

In addition to its 203 newly renovated guest accommodations, Snow King Resort also features 60 luxury and classic vacation condominium rentals. Luxury and classic condominium rentals in the Grand View Lodge, are fully-furnished, luxuriously appointed with all of the upscale comforts of home and personally designed to reflect the regional surroundings of Jackson Hole. Condominium guests have access to all resort conveniences and amenities during their stay.

Surrounded by 3.4 million pristine acres of the Bridger-Teton National Forest and encompassed by the iconic, jagged peaks of the Teton Range and Grand Teton National Park, Snow King Resort is one of Jackson's most celebrated resorts and the only full-service, year-round resort providing an authentic, Western lodging experience. The resort offers more than 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including scenic outdoor lawns and gardens, and its signature restaurant, Haydens Post, features an expansive outdoor patio with panoramic views of Snow King Mountain. Snow King Resort and the surrounding area offer a variety of all-season culinary, cultural and shopping experiences as well as outdoor adventures that span mountaineering, dog sledding, tandem flights, fishing and skiing. Snow King has its own ski lift so guests can ski-in and ski-out, and is the only resort that offers night skiing in Jackson Hole.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
