We told you last week about Starbuck’s offering a ski-thru window at Squaw Valley near Lake Tahoe. Now, another ski resort is catering to those who get thirsty on the slopes, only they’ve taken it the adult beverage route.
Skiiers at Aspen Mountain will be able to sip bubbly on the slopes via a portable “champagne sled” bar. A President’s Day weekend special sponsored by the Little Nell hotel and Veuve Clicquot where skiiers could find the portable bar via social networking sites got the ball rolling on the idea. Now, the resort has a liquor license from the county to make champagne on the slopes an everyday reality.
When the county voted to approve the liquor license, concerns about sloshed skiiers were voiced. However, at $15 a glass, only someone on a Petra Ecclestone budget could afford to over-imbibe.
The pop-up bar will be called “The Oasis.” A press release said, “The stylish pop-up bar will be adorned in the champagne house’s iconic yellow color. The bar will feature umbrellas, lounge chairs, a solar-powered sound system, flags and other eye-catching features that will make The Oasis stand out in the white snow.”
Would you stop to sip champagne on the slopes?
