First hitting the slopes in Aspen in 2007, Clicquot in the Snow has become synonymous with the best in alpine wining, dining and entertainment during the snow season.
This year, Veuve Clicquot will again partner with Thredbo Alpine Hotel and The Denman Hotel & Spa to ensure ultimate Apres luxury, style, and fun for skiiers.
Clicquot in the Snow culminates in a week-long winter festival, kicking off on Monday 29th July with seven days of fabulous Veuve Clicquot activities. During this week, the Clicquot action is non-stop, with a daily calendar of Clicquot-inspired events and experiences in and around Thredbo to choose from.
New to the festival this year are Clicquot High Tea Sessions at Eagles Nest, Australia’s highest restaurant with sweeping views of Thredbo. Another addition is Clicquot Snow Croquet, an event that is bound to be a highlight of the season. Played with hoops dug into the snow and Clicquot yellow mallets and balls, the inaugural snow-quet championship game will be held from 12.30pm on Friday 2nd August at Merritts.
On Saturday 3rd August guests will experience a Clicquot-inspired al fresco fare at the Clicquot Snow Picnic, a gourmet picnic hosted by The Denman Hotel & Spa, set amidst the breathtaking Alpine scenery at Dead Horse Gap. And for those who enjoy the art of culinary Cliquot matching, there are delicious Clicquot Degustation Dinners at restaurants around the village throughout the week.
For those with a competitive streak, the Clicquot Classic Ski Race is not to be missed. This is a downhill race for enthusiastic skiers and snowboarders to be held on Wednesday 1st August, with plenty of off-piste action for the Clicquot enthusiasts as well. Those whose skills lean more to social than athletic will undoubtedly prefer the legendary Clicquot in the Snow Celebration Party, an evening of Clicquot fun, cool music, photo opportunities of a faux Clicquot ski lift and lots more.
