Here's the thing about New Year's.
The limos, the dress-up, the glitter — it's more like a prom than a guy thing. If it were up to us, all that glam would go.
We'd just need some whiskey. Maybe a rifle.
Solution: Give her the New Year's she wants, then have your own by grabbing the crew for a three-night expedition to The St. Regis Aspen.
Of course, when we say "stay" we don't mean "stay." You'll be fly fishing on the Roaring Fork River and blasting the bejesus out of clay pigeons (or slightly less helpless creatures, should your bloodlust desire), and following it all up with a hike so effing beautiful that it should be illegal.
Luckily, fewer things are illegal in Colorado than they used to be. (Cough.)
But back to the blasting: You'll be guided by The St. Regis Aspen’s exclusive partner, the Aspen Outfitting Company, in the art of shooting, either on a private range or a hunting site. Guns, ammo, and a good time are all provided.
No glitter, guaranteed.
