About Horace Newhard

I built the original house with my brother and friends in 1967. We were the first to receive a certificate of occupancy in the newly opened Snowmass Ski Resort. I continue to visit Snowmass frequently with family and friends.

The area is quite beautiful year round with world class sports, art and music activities ongoing. Events are suitable for a mix of ages and abilities.

Horace Newhard purchased this house in 2000

Why Horace Newhard chose Snowmass Village

I began skiing in Aspen with my brother in 1961, and had the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of Snowmass Ski Resort. My sister owns a place nearby and we created family vacations throughout the year to enjoy the area and each other's company.

Skiing conditions are unbelievably good, with splendid snow conditions and attention to grooming the hills throughout the ski season.

In addition to ski season, Snowmass Village is a lovely get-away for family and friends at all times of the year. Summer season is the time for the Aspen Music Festival and many other events in the area.

What makes this house unique

Ideal climate good skiing year around leisure. Excellent snow conditions are typical during the ski season. Off season offers many options for leisure, such as hiking, golfing, fishing, biking, fine dining, horseback riding, river rafting in summer, the beauty of seasonal changes, and a great place for family reunions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have been a enjoying all of the seasons in Aspen and Snowmass since the late 1960s and have stayed in several homes and condos in the area.

My absolute favorite is the Newhard Chalet in Melton Ranch, Snowmass.

The Newhard Chalet, with its expansive views of Owl Creek Road and the Snowmass Club, is modern, comfortable, and outfitted with all of the best amenities. The large kitchen, which is well equipped to handle large groups, and its adjoining dining area, with its two oversized tables and chairs, is the hub of the Chalet.

The entire first floor has soaring ceilings and windows.

There are bedrooms, each with cable TV and baths on all three floors.

The Chalet is within walking distance, via a bike trail on the cul-de-sac, to the City Market of Snowmass and Snowmass Village itself.

Another bonus is the Chalet's hot tub located directly outside of the 1st floor family room

Priceless Winter Vacation at the Newhard Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had another excellent stay at the Newhard Chalet. This was our third time staying at this property. We enjoy the closeness to the slopes, the shuttle stop in front of the house, the private hot tub, the layout of the house and the other amenities. The ladies in our group enjoyed the short drive to Aspen for the shopping. The owner is always available to answer our questions. I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a spacious place to stay while skiing or visiting Snowmass or the other nearby areas. The group loved the layout of the gourmet kitchen. The Newhard Chalet was definitely our home away from home during our visit to Snowmass. The caretaker assisted us with any inquiries that we had during our visit. I extend a big thank you to the owner and caretaker for always making sure that we have a pleasant trip. This house is close enough to be at the lift upon opening. The transit system in Snowmass or travel by private vehicle will have you from the Village at Snowmass to the Newhard Chalet quicker than one might think. There is a grocery store and a post office very close to the Newhard Chalet.

Outstanding home, in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable, spacious home. Furnished with anything and everything the seven of us needed during a four night stay. Location was great, less than a mile from Snowmass, and a short drive to Aspen. It was perfect.

Great place for a lot of people

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 people in the house for a wedding in Snowmass. The house worked great. Lots of room and a great kitchen and gathering room to relax and visit. The beds were comfortable and kitchen well stocked with enough plates to host a party.

This home is right in the middle of heart! Aspen is 20 min away and we had a great view of baloon festival from windows! It had all the facilities you need for your family or group. Kitchen was also well versed with all required utensils and other stuffs.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A group of us spent Labor Day weekend in Snowmass and the house worked out well. There was plenty of space and had all of the amenities we needed. Right next to the shuttle stop which was great for getting to and from the village and down to the park where the JAS concert was taking place. Kitchen had everything we needed and the neighbor was extremely friendly and helpful. He even shipped a forgotten item after we left. Would definitely stay here again!

Celebration Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Four couples gathered in this charming Snowmass home to celebrate my 60th birthday and another couple's 10th wedding anniversary. We couldn't have selected a more ideal spot, with house layout perfectly suited to our needs, kitchen cupboards extremely well-stocked (even a teapot and kettle for us tea drinkers!), and bus into Aspen literally right around the corner. Personal details in the house really gave this chalet the warm feeling of a family home, complete with fireplace, hot tub, and ample common-area space for dining and lounging. A bonus was the lodger who lives in adjacent garage apartment, whom Bix called when we reported a problem with the back door not latching properly. Nice guy -- he came over promptly and fixed the problem. We'd love to return again sometime to the Newhard Chalet!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review Vicki. A very happy birthday to you and we're so glad you had a good time at the Newhard Chalet. We often visit the house as a family, and there are a lot of us, so we appreciate that you noticed the small touches that make a place a home - not just a place to stay. We hope you will come back to visit the Newhard Chalet for future celebrations.
