From the moment you approach and step inside The Sonnenalp, it’s immediately apparent that it’s completely different from most ski-town hotels in the United States. The exterior, lobby, staff uniforms, restaurants and meeting space have a distinctly European feel, and for good reason as five generations of the Faessler family have set and maintained the highest standards of hospitality and service at their Sonnenalp Resorts in Ofterschwang, Germany, and Vail.
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.
