Aspen Snowmass Sotheby's International Realty (ASSIR) is the exclusive sales agent for The Residences at Viceroy Snowmass on behalf of developer Related Colorado, a subsidiary of renowned national development firm Related Companies. Related is the owner and developer of Snowmass Base Village, Snowmass Mall and Snowmass Center, encompassing two ski-in/ski-out plazas as well as virtually all of the retail operations in Snowmass.

Related Colorado President Dwayne Romero said, "Viceroy Snowmass has been an unequivocal success including being named Conde Nast Traveler's number one resort hotel in Aspen/Snowmass. This season, The Residences at Viceroy Snowmass will be available for sale, offering the only wholly-owned real estate option located within a luxury hotel in Aspen/Snowmass. Among the numerous benefits to whole ownership at Viceroy are guarantees of availability for prime vacation periods, secure owner storage space for all the mountain toys, flexibility to place the residence in a rental program, and all the ease of a luxury hotel combined with a home-away-from-home."
"We are pleased to be bringing these beautifully designed residences to the market as the winter season commences," said Andrew Light, Co-Owner of ASSIR and long-time Snowmass developer. "Viceroy Snowmass has been an incredibly successful hotel, and we know there is demand for a resident experience combined with the benefit of luxury hotel services and amenities."
With panoramic mountain vistas, Viceroy Snowmass is situated in the heart of Snowmass Base Village at the base of Snowmass, the second largest ski mountain Colorado, just minutes from the bustling nightlife, art, cultural and shopping scene of Aspen. Guests of Viceroy Snowmass literally step out of the hotel and onto their skis or snowboard, delivered slopeside on Assay Hill by the hotel's ski valet. The Treehouse – home to the Ski & Snowboard Schools of Aspen/Snowmass as well as the Kids' Adventure Center – is located across from the hotel, a short walk or shuttle ride in the hotel's famous Luge, an open-air electric vehicle that whizzes guests across the Base Village to the main entrance of The Treehouse.
Widely acknowledged as one of the number one family resorts in the world and always heralded among the top resorts in the world, Snowmass' 3,332 acres welcome skiers and snowboarders of all abilities with seemingly endless beginner, intermediate, advanced expert off-piste terrain. New this season are 200 new acres of gladed-skiing on Burnt as well as the new $35 million Elk Camp Restaurant, located at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola.
The Spa at Viceroy Snowmass delivers a wide range of wellness experiences in a mountain Zen setting featuring a selection of holistic wellness experiences – from Ute Indian-inspired therapies to contemporary beauty rituals.
Viceroy Snowmass Restaurant Eight K features modern American comfort food with Creole accents under the direction of Executive Chef Will Nolan, a recent 2012 finalist for Food & Wine magazine's People's Best New Chef. Eight K bar and lounge is a stylish and happening spot for cocktails, featuring a new "Barrel-Cocktail menu" from Colorado artisanal liquors as part of the "Farm-to-Bar" program." The poolside and slopeside Nest Lounge and Café offers sushi as well as Asian-inspired cuisine with the largest mountainside vodka bar in North America.
Architect Jean-Michel Gathy designed the residences at Viceroy Snowmass as peaceful and comfortable retreats, with compelling features such as contemporary granite fireplaces, custom lightly grained oak millwork and galley or full kitchens featuring top stainless appliances from Viking, Wolf and Sub-Zero, offering owners and guests the comforts of home.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
