ASPENX Beach Club With Gray Malin Returns To Aspen Mountain. Mountainside Pop-Up Reopens January 2023

For twelve weekends this winter, ASPENX will revive the mountainside pop-up, ASPENX Beach Club with Gray Malin, at the top of Aspen Mountain, complete with music, food, drinks and 360-degree views of the surrounding slopes and peaks. The one-of-a-kind activation unites ASPENX’s premium style, event expertise and dedicated service with fine art photographer Gray Malin’s eye for artistry and design, infusing playful pops of color into the aesthetic.

Gray Malin is a modern-day fine art photographer and New York Times best-selling author based in Los Angeles. He has received commercial recognition for his aerial photography, shot over the world’s most stunning beaches, and has also photographed collections at historic properties including The Little Nell, The Beverly Hills Hotel and The Breakers Palm Beach. Forging his work into a larger lifestyle with the philosophy to Make Every Day a Getaway®, Gray’s photography has since expanded into a line of luxury products for home and travel. Gray has collaborated with global brands including Disney, Google, Ladurée, and Veuve Clicquot, engaging diverse audiences to experience his work in new and exciting ways.  In recent years, Gray has created unique design projects that offer an experiential component of the brand for consumers, such as a redesign of a cabana at The Beverly Hills Hotel and the ASPENX Beach Club atop Aspen Mountain.
