The Rockies
Rocky Mountains, Denver
Nothing but you, a few friends, a family of elk, and a bald eagle. That—plus a lot of fresh air in a series of jaw-dropping locations—is the general idea of this trip. While MT Sobek offers excursions and hikes and adventure travel all over the world, not much can beat a view of the Rocky Mountains from 10,000 feet. You’ll hike up to a dozen miles a day and raft for about eleven miles—but this isn’t the kind of Outward Bound–style trip where you have to pitch your own tent and kill your own dinner. (You stay in a hotel every night.) After a week, you’ll come home a stronger, fitter, more well-adjusted human.
St. Regis Aspen Resort
315 E. Dean St., Aspen
Even among Aspen’s supply of extravagant hotels, the St. Regis stands out. It hits you when you walk through the doors and see the giant stone fireplace in the lobby, which has that rustic-yet-polished feeling you get at the best ski resorts in the world. The guest rooms are outfitted with custom leather bed frames and faux-fur throws, and some have marble fireplaces (be sure to request a room with one—it makes a huge difference). And the fifteen-treatment-room Remède Spa is a super decadent spot to recharge after a day on the slopes—or after a day doing anything, really. We’re partial to the Rocky Mountain Ritual, which moisturizes wind-whipped skin.
goop Aspen
422 E. Cooper Ave., Aspen
Some would argue that summer in Aspen is even better than winter ski season—and we would be among them. All it took was a hike through a field of wildflowers on the Rio Grande Trail and we were hooked. So we decided to stay and open up shop inside a cozy chalet (is there any other kind?), which has been reimagined as goop’s summer residence—until August 12. Designed by Kate McCollough and Max Zinser of KMZ New York, the space holds an Aspen-centric edit of home, fashion, clean beauty and wellness items, like organic cashmere and wool throws and cushions from Texidors, handbags from What Goes Around Comes Around, Staub cookware, and goop’s own lines, G. Label and G. Sport. And goop being goop, there are also wellness elixirs from Moon Juice and Sun Potion. Think of it as a way to get fresh mountain air—with really good benefits.
