The team behind NYC’s tony Eleven Madison Park does not vacation like you do. For the past two summers, restaurateur Will Guidara and chef Daniel Humm took over a beach house in the East Hamptons for an exclusive pop-up deemed EMP Summer House, where the all-white interior, Adirondack chairs, and barside copper flamingos gave off extreme summer vibes.

Now, the duo are promising to “make it nice” during a pop-up in Aspen, Colorado: EMP Winter House will debut next month at Chef’s Club at the St. Regis Aspen Resort, serving a Swiss-inspired menu exclusively to American Express cardholders. There will be a “yurt village,” featuring speciality made yurts from Oregon and a unique service system: “From the yurts, guests can summon servers by flipping on the Christmas lights crowning the top of each structure,” as the Wall Street Journal reports. There will be après-ski thermoses of bone broth — for the table, naturally — for $28. There will be copious amounts of truffles and caviar, listed on the menu under a section dubbed “Black Diamond.”

And crucially, there will be endless opportunities for cozy, chalet-adjacent decor. It’s unclear what the interiors will look like just yet, but below, a list of some items you might find in EMP Winter House — which you can now totally recreate in your own fancy yurt.

This chandelier, featuring “naturally shed elk antlers cast in resin” — in either natural or “sun-bleached” — is literally called an “Aspen Antler Chandelier,” a missed opportunity to call them “chantleirs.” $2,895

• Sturdy-looking “chalet armchairs” that rival their summer counterpart, the Adirondack. They’re currently sold out, but get on the waitlist to shell out $1,305 apiece.

• Shimmering gold pinecone salt and pepper shakers which, at $495 for the set, keep the con in conifers.

• Beanbags encased in lamb’s wool: peak cozy, and also round, just like yurts. $839 to $1,119

• Throws made from Suri alpaca fur, which admittedly looks exceptionally fluffy. $1,189 to $1,359 each

• Hand-knit “chalet cable throw pillows” made from baby alpaca. $495 each

• An wooden ice bucket with a pewter elk attached to the front; I am screaming. $305

• A pewter stag butter dish. Per its product description: “this magnificent elk tips its head back in anticipation of being lifted up and used.” $204

• No chalet is complete with an involved Black Forest cuckoo clock. $1,719

• Antique Canadian snowshoes from the 1950s, a necessity for chalet vibes. A steal, perhaps, at roughly $130 per shoe.

Antique painted skis! Price is “email for details” so probably $$$

• Strings of fake icicles, much less deadly than real icicles. $160 for six icicles

Best yurt ever. Go forth and decorate.
