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.

After spending summer 2018 at our pop-up in Aspen, we knew we couldn’t miss ski season in one of our favorite mountain towns. That’s why on December 12, we’ll be planting our poles in a Mia Dalton Studio–designed shop-meets-chalet downtown. Our 1,649-square-foot winter home is basically a gooped-up Swiss chalet—meaning it’s as modern as it is comfortable. Dalton created a cozy, Rocky-Mountains-meet-modern-design take on the Aspen lifestyle, and we stocked the shelves with a selection of skiwear (including all the pieces from our goop x Perfect Moment collaboration), après-ski gear from brands like Madeleine Thompson and Monrow, and après-cocktail gear from brands like G. Label and Armani. Should you need supplies to recover from too much of a good thing, we’ll have wellness selects and workout accessories on hand, as well as home goods, including luxurious linens from Hangai and Texidors. We even took care of the mini mogulers: The Kids Ski Shop has everything you need to outfit the littles for a day on the mountain. Pop in to stock up on all the ultrahydrating, anti-chapping beauty products you need for the slopes (goop Beauty, Vintner’s Daughter, and…
