Clicquot in the Snow a boost for Challenge Aspen

ASPEN – Steamboat lays claim to its trade-marked champagne powder, but Aspen has Clicquot in the Snow. So there.

After a day on the slopes, skiers and riders are invited to indulge in apres ski bubbly, today through Sunday, as Veuve Clicquot brings its third year of parties and champagne tastings to Aspen and Snowmass. The event benefits Challenge Aspen, the organization devoted to giving those with disabilities an opportunity to enjoy skiing and other local recreational opportunities.

For every flute of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label purchased at participating establishments, the label will make a donation to Challenge Aspen.

Clicquot in the Snow apres events take place daily through Sunday, from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Ajax Tavern at the base of Aspen Mountain, Willow Creek Bistro at Aspen Highlands and at The Nest and pool deck at the Viceroy at Snowmass.

In addition, Veuve Cliquot and Aspen Magazine host a VIP kickoff party at the Sky Hotel on Friday to benefit Challenge Aspen, and the free apres event Saturday at the Viceroy will be hosted by reality TV celebs Giuliana and Bill Rancic. DJ Baya Voce will mix the music. The Viceroy is also the spot to purchase a pair of limited-edition Smith ski goggles that feature Veuve Cliquot’s signature label on the strap, unless you win a pair during the event’s giveaways.

Saturday night brings the party to Syzygy in Aspen from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Guests can pre-reserve silver, gold and platinum table packages for VIP service, according to Veuve Clicquot.
