If there’s one thing we just love here at Urban List, it’s a glass of champers—the only drink you can justifiably enjoy at breakfast, lunch or dinner…and anytime in between. Mix it with our favourite town for a winter escape and we’ve pretty much reached peak happiness.
Yep, that luxury month-long champagne event, Clicquot in the Snow is back for 2019 and, as expected, the programme is better than ever.
Returning for its ninth year, locals and visitors alike can raise their glasses and toast to spectacular Queenstown and indulge in some serious apres ski fun for the whole of August.
This year is the best yet, with a new Clicquot husky sledding experience at Snowfarm. Yes, you read correctly, there's a husky dog sledding team ready to whisk you through the high trails of the Southern Alps. You can even take the helm yourself or just ride along in the basket with an experienced musher guiding your journey.
Add to this a stargazing experience, where you'll glide on a gondola to Bob’s Peak, situated high above Queenstown, and journey into the hidden world of the Southern night with paired dishes to Clicquot.
Other not-to-be-missed moments include the hugely popular Après Bar at Coronet Peak, a Veuve Clicquot ‘Flute & Facial’ experience at the luxurious Eforea Spa Hilton Queenstown and let's not forget the moreish "flute and fries" where you can snack on delicious truffle fries, the perfect bedfellow for a glass of bubbles.
It’s a month of champers, snow and luxury, darling. Be there.
