Discover Aura – the newest and most exclusive collection of twenty-one slope-side residences in the vibrant Snowmass Base Village. An alpine escape where families will gather to ski-in and live-out days filled with adventure, blue sky and pure Colorado mountain air.
Aura is now accepting contracts on all residences.
A next-generation living experience, Aura’s three guiding design principles set it above and apart: health and wellness, the highest respect for the environment and luxurious Snowmass living. These combine to create a soul-stirring mountain life with no hassles and less stress, letting you spend more time doing the things you love most.
Flanked by the vast playground of Snowmass Resort and the lively Base Village, Aura is absolutely private, yet offers a profound connection to nature and all the activities the mountain has to offer. There’s simply no better canvas for a legacy home in Aspen Snowmass.
Health and wellness come naturally at Aura. With out-your-door access to the boundless, year-round adventures in Snowmass, it’s easy to tap into an active, stress-free (and car-free) lifestyle. Inside, each residence warmly beckons with an abundance of natural light, exceptional indoor air quality, and biophilic design elements that seamlessly bring the outdoors inside.
Aura’s residences are smartly designed to help mitigate the impact that new development has on climate change and preserve our fresh Colorado snow and clean mountain air. This collection of ultra-efficient, all-electric homes uses 100% renewable energy sources, resulting in zero ongoing carbon emissions. Its mass timber structure is not only architecturally stunning, it also significantly reduces the building’s embodied carbon footprint.
Aura marries the privacy, space and feel of single-family living with the convenience, services and amenities of a luxury residential building. Spacious four- and five-bedroom flex floor plans cater to full-time or second-home mountain life. Its elegant mountain design captures the luxurious warmth of a modern alpine chalet, while breathtaking up-mountain and down-valley views create a profound connection to nature.
THROUGH RESIDENCES WITH DIRECT ELEVATOR ACCESS
Designed as through residences with no common hallways, each residence makes an impressive arrival statement with secure, direct elevator access from garage and lounge level.
FLEX ROOM BRINGS CHOICE
Each home features a flex space, allowing owners to customize its use to meet their needs – think office suite, media or game room or an additional bedroom.
OUTDOOR/INDOOR LIVING PERFECTED
Seamless outdoor/indoor living—with expansive terraces or walk-out patios, and large operable window walls—connects you directly to the dramatic Snowmass mountainscape.
A private, secure garage, like you’d find in a single-family home but located in Aura’s subterranean garage, offers space for two cars and additional storage. Additional guest parking is available in an auto court outside.
THE BEAUTY OF MASS TIMBER
Beyond its sustainability benefits, Aura’s mass timber structure provides a naturally warm and calming interior with stunning wood ceilings, glulam beams and columns.
A great room with awe-inspiring mountain views. An expansive terrace for breathtaking alfresco dining. A gourmet kitchen fit for culinary feats and lively gatherings, complete with a large island and high-end Wolf appliances. All, seamlessly connected to the dining area for sprawling entertaining. Plus, private bathrooms in every bedroom/bunkroom that give friends and family their own intimate alpine escapes.
Two elegant finish packages cater to your personal tastes.
This refined interior palette offers a cohesive, contemporary design approach. The cool gray, textural stone and tile are a beautiful contrast to the exposed wood. The material palette features dark, rift-sawn white oak millwork with silver metal hardware and decorative lighting.
Layers of warm, textural interior materials create a more classic mountain-modernist aesthetic. Where character-grade white oak millwork and dark bronze-and-black metal finishes work in harmony with the light, creamy tones of the tile and stone selections and the warmth of natural wood.
Aura’s focus on healthy living and wellness begins at home, where biophilic design elements enhance the connection to nature. Out-your-door access to the vast, year-round adventures in Snowmass lets you effortlessly enjoy the outdoor pursuits that make Aspen Snowmass a sought-after place to live. Here, families can feel happier, more productive and less stressed. It’s a breath of well-being that only pure mountain living can bring.
NEVER A DULL MOUNTAIN MOMENT
Aura’s location is idyllic, on the doorstep of Snowmass Resort and its new Base Village. Everything from epic skiing, hiking, biking, ice skating, swimming, climbing and yoga to rigorous workouts in the fitness center—it’s all walkable from your home.
THE NATURE OF BIOPHILIC DESIGN
Biophilic design connects us to nature fostering a sense of well-being. That’s why Aura features chalet-inspired planters on each terrace, large window walls that bathe living spaces in natural light and seamless outdoor/indoor living that makes nature your constant companion.
PRISTINE INDOOR AIR QUALITY
A hallmark of life at Aura is its excellent indoor air quality. It’s something we take for granted in our homes—and take seriously at Aura. No toxic building materials, an all-electric design (which means no gas burning in the homes), continuous airflow systems and large, operable windows assure fresh clean air flows through each residence at all times.
Your own garage—private and secure. Direct elevator access into your residence. Your own ski locker with boot dryers and ski racks offer enviable walk-out access to the ski slope. An on-site concierge to handle groceries, reservations and property management with finesse. The Aura Lounge and Grotto where you can relax or catch up over a glass of wine. At Aura, we’ve thought of everything, so you can spend time doing the things you love with the ones you love. Here, time is the new luxury.
Our social gathering spot is your welcoming hub for relaxation, rejuvenation and newfound friends—think wine, cheese, hot chocolate, board games, sports viewing, movie nights and a cozy fireplace.
Sanctuary awaits in this private outdoor oasis located just off the Assay Hill ski trail. An extension of the Aura Lounge, the Grotto offers stress-melting spa pools, fire features, a soothing water wall and lush landscaping.
SKI LOCKERS WITH SKI/BIKE STORAGE
Your own private ski locker keeps your boots and gear dry and an adjacent storage room features a dedicated rack for skis, boards and poles. When the snow melts, your ski storage room transforms into bike storage. So you can instantly immerse in playful days of pure adventure all year long.
Right next to the Aura Lounge, a private fitness studio makes working out almost effortless. Or walk across Wood Road to SBVfit—a private, expansive fitness center in One Snowmass—also home to local favorite King Yoga Studio. For laps and family fun, the private saltwater Village pool spans 25 yards and features a grin-inducing water slide.
Backed by the broader Snowmass Mountain Lodging team, Aura’s on-site concierge staff knows every insider tip to help you live like a mountain local and revel in Aspen Snowmass life to its fullest.
Start or end your ski day in the Base Village core and let Aura’s private shuttle service whisk you to and from the aprés-ski scene.
