Hats Off

TW’s vintage cowboy hat

Saturday was the First Descents charity ball at The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch.  Theme: Hats!  The snow-capped mountain backdrop of Beaver Creek and the extravagant head dresses made for quite the show.  With champagne bottles popping, auction bidding went wild.  The charity, which leads cancer patients on unimaginable sporting adventures, garnered great support.

As for the resort, I was totally enamored by the polished bar that neatly mixed elements of mountain town decor.
