Clicquot in the Snow for 2011



AUGUST 1 – 7 2011 
Veuve Clicquot returns to Thredbo this winter season for Clicquot in the Snow 2011, a celebration of two of life's great pleasures, Veuve Clicquot and après ski.  

Clicquot in the Snow is the highlight of the Thredbo winter season. Starting on Monday 1 August, a week-long festival with a Clicquot twist.  The village will turn "Clicquot yellow", with bars and clubs decked out in exclusive Clicquot décor and hosting week long Veuve Clicquot inspired events for guests to participate in.   

Clicquot in the Snow kicks off each day with delicious Clicquot On Piste Brunch Sessions on the mountain at the legendary Kareela Hűtte. What better way to start the day than with Eggs Benedict with a glass of Veuve Clicquot ($46). And after the day's skiing, you can come off the mountain and spend the afternoon sipping on Veuve Clicquot at the Clicquot Après-Ski Sessions at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel. Chill to the snow sounds from DJ Beth Yen, wearing your chic Clicquot sunnies (available when you purchase a flute of Clicquot). 

The high point of this year's calendar will undoubtedly be the inaugural Veuve Clicquot Tube-a-Thon on Friday afternoon. Recently launched in Vail with Abbie Cornish as its host, the Veuve Clicquot snow Tube-a-Thon was an instant hit. In Thredbo, guests can enjoy a chilled flute at the pop-up Clicquot Snow Bar on Friday Flat as they cheer on celebrities competing on their limited-edition Veuve Clicquot snow tubes.  

For those with a culinary bent, there are delicious Clicquot Degustation Dinners and the Clicquot In The Snow Picnic, a gourmet picnic hosted by The Denman Hotel & Spa ($120 per person) on Saturday, set amidst the breathtaking Alpine scenery at Dead Horse Gap. Imagine sitting on your custom-made Clicquot picnic rug on the side of a snow-covered mountain with a flute of Clicquot in one hand and a marron and truffle canapé in the other, and you're halfway there. The week will conclude with the Clicquot Classic Ski Race, a downhill race for enthusiastic skiers and snowboarders (registration atClicquot Après-Ski Sessions) with plenty of off-piste action for the Clicquot enthusiasts as well.   

Clicquot in the Snow began in Aspen in 2007 and has grown in popularity, with the best bars, clubs and restaurants joining in this fabulous celebration of the winter season. For the second year, Veuve Clicquot will partner with the Thredbo Alpine Hotel and The Denman Hotel & Spa to ensure that the event is the highlight of the ski season with seven fun-packed, luxurious days.
