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. Highlights include 5,755 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space, a heated pool and hot tub, a fitness center and courtesy shuttle service to Vail Mountain. The hotel’s restaurant, Pivot62, has shareable plates and pizza from a wood-fired oven on the menu, while innovative cocktails fuel après ski at the property’s lobby bar, Handcrafted. Don’t miss out on the warm cookies that greet guests upon arrival!

Two years later, it became the noncommissioned officers club and service club. Today, the historic property is known simply as the Red Cross Building and serves as a beautiful backdrop for special events.
