I grew up in Colorado, spending much of my youth in the mountains. I had skis strapped to my feet from the age of two (my first ski days were when I was 6 months old, in a pack on my dad’s back, which is illegal now but a brag worthy claim of kids from the 80s who grew up in the mountains), and every weekend was spent outside enjoying the sun, the mountains, and good friends. It was really the best way to grow up.
Last year, my husband and I moved back to Colorado (although it seems like I am on more airplanes than I am home these days), but it has been a welcome change from life in New York City. It has also been a massive cultural shift.
For this Après sesh I partnered with G.H. Mumm Champagne and invited Alexandra and Koen from Vail’s Hygge Life shop, as well as our photographer friends Ali Vagnini and Matt Kennedy to help us pop some bottles and kick the 2017/18 ski season off right. Alexandra and Koen specialize in furs, and pretty much everything cozy, and they brought major Hygge vibes with them. Koen even wore a vintage fur that belonged to his grandfather, a perfect accessory for anyone sabering a bottle of champagne on top of a mountain!!
It was a fun afternoon enjoying G.H. Mumm Champagne, nibbling on cheese and charcutarie and hanging with friends. Our 9 month old puppy, Bowie, made a guest appearance as well as my forever dapper husband, Zac.
Saber Master, Koen
