As our social media feeds begin to fill up with mountain scenery, Floridians can’t help but book a holiday in Aspen/Snowmass. Some of us may plan to stay longer through summer rentals and part-time residences. Whichever way you intend to enjoy this gorgeous escape in the Rockies, have a wonderful time.
The St. Regis Residences, Miami
While spending the summer out west, start dreaming about tropical winters in South Florida by visiting The St. Regis Residences, Miami’s sales gallery at The St. Regis Aspen Resort. Designed by starchitects Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Rockwell Group, the tower will rise along Biscayne Bay and offer signature amenities including St. Regis butler service, a private marina and Michelin-starred chef Fabio Trabocchi’s cuisine.
With the arrival of Hermès’s Aspen store, Colorado now counts two locations for the French luxury house. Natural context, from local stone and wood to mountain vistas, leads design inspiration, while artworks nod to western winter and equine motifs. Shoppers first encounter leather goods, fragrances, beauty and accessories including iconic silk scarves before making their way up to equestrian, clothing and jewelry collections.
Aspen Art Museum’s ArtCrush
Sotheby’s proudly represents Aspen Art Museum’s ArtCrush 2023 auction with works by artists such as Liza Lou, Charles Gaines, the Haas Brothers and Nairy Baghramian, recipient of the 2023 Aspen Award for Art and ArtCrush gala honoree (Buttermilk Mountain base, August 4). Visit her solo show “Jupon de Corps” with large-scale installations, for which she gives a talk on August 4.

If you’re curious about how a restaurant named Le Bateau came to be here, it pays homage to a precursor of modern ski lifts when skiers were towed by boat up Ajax Mountain. The French translation further nods to Gallic cuisine like roasted oysters with Champagne beurre blanc and pink peppercorn mignonette. Foods of French-linked locales are also in the mix.
Music + Film
The Aspen Music Festival & School livestreams eight of 300+ classical music concerts through August 20, with “A Feast of Music” benefit on August 8. The Foo Fighters and Lumineers headline the 32nd Jazz Aspen Snowmass (JAS) Labor Day Experience (Snowmass Town Park, September 1-3).
