A road trip a few miles west and 5,000 ft up led us to a serene retreat in Beaver Creek. An isolated mountain resort town where celebrities and outdoor enthusiasts hob nob around gondolas and prime time dining establishments. In the summer the air is crisp, the mountains are green, and the town is quiet…ideal for a day of hiking + early cocktailing.
We went all out for dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago at the Ritz Bachelor Gulch. The menu changes daily and they don’t publish the prices, but for one evening of sheer dining ectasy, the price tag is worth it. Even if you don’t choose to dine, a visit to the mountain-chic bar is mandatory.
