Heads up, Melbourne. You can now enjoy the *real* perks of the snow without the 200km drive.
Get out your fur coats and pompom beanies, coz Mont Plonk après ski pop-up is bringing the snow to you this season. We're talking a complete alpine-themed takeover of Melbourne Public, including fires, bad jumpers and lots of hot booze.
This year, Melbourne Public have teamed up with Ugg Australia to provide you with the cosiest ski-lodge experience, smack bang in the middle of Melbourne. You can expect fur blankets, sheepskin rugs (vegans look away) and toasty, toasty fire-pits.
Owner of the space, Alysha Darcy, is almost as pumped as we are. “Mont Plonk was such a success last year. We're excited to see what our guests think of our new additions, including our dazzling new terrace bar”. We like the sound of that, Alysha!
Get ready to warm those bellies and get snug as a bug with homemade mulled wine, boozy hot chocolate and hot toddies. There'll also be an array of traditional ski food, including cheese fondue and bratwurst sausages. Mmmmm.
Wanna know what else is cool (snow puns...)? Access to Mont Plonk is FREE! But if you wanna lash out, you can also purchase group ski passes, which include a reserved table for the night, gooey cheese fondue, bratwurst sausages (my mouth is watering RN), a choice of a wintery drink and shots from the shot-skis. In case you’re wondering what shot-skis are...
So, if you can’t make it to the slopes this winter, we’ll see ya there.
