Mountain Mayhem: Toasting to travel
On an idyllic Aspen summer evening, elite vacation club Exclusive Resorts (ER) toasted to “the return of travel,” presenting an open-air reception at Glenn Bucksbaum’s Red Mountain residence.
The July 22 event was themed to be a “Chic Hoe-Down” with a Western wardrobe encouraged. Cowboy boot and hat-clad attendees arrived in style, embracing the ambiance while enjoying live music and refined single malts at Talisker’s Rare Scotch Tasting Bar, as well as a sampling of Fairchild’s finest vintages. Guests were welcomed to the party with a brief overview on the club to learn more about ER’s members-only portfolio and focus on privacy, safety and service.
Founded in 2002, ER is a members-only vacation club with more than 350 residences, primarily located in private resorts or residential enclaves, including several locations in the Roaring Fork Valley. As one of the largest owners and operators of luxury villas around the world, they’ve forged relationships with world-class hotels, resorts and tour operators, anchored by once-in-a-lifetime vacation experiences, a proven business model and a world-class management team comprised of industry leaders like majority owner Steve Case, co-founder of AOL.com.

On behalf of ER, additional hosts included Rachel Regan Senior Vice President of Sales; Joey Whelan, Vice President of Marketing, Derek Rollings, Vice President of Sales; and Erin Lentz, Editor-in-Chief of CURATED Magazine.
