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.

There are more than ten Eating Recovery Centers throughout the US.
Food Lab Boulder
1825 Pearl A, Boulder, CO 80302
Boulder has steadily grown to become a foodie destination, in-part because of its long history of serving farm-to-table fare, but also due to its high concentration of talented chefs. A newer addition to the city’s culinary scene, Food Lab makes itself at home as a community-driven cooking school. Founder and owner Casey Easton describes the space as “inviting and not-intimidating,” offering a place for couples, friends, families, and companies to bond over the communal act of cooking. The three-hour-long classes are totally hands-on, and range from pasta-making to paella with the last thirty minutes or so reserved for dining together. Easton’s taste for interior design is evident in the chic, industrial, bright space, which makes coming here for a cooking lesson even more fun.
