Aspen Oasis Pop-Up Bar and Cliquot in the Snow Return to Aspen on Friday, February 12

Aspen Oasis

Every ski season, Veuve Clicquot and The Little Nell come together to celebrate the high life on Aspen Mountains slopes and at its base. One week from today – Friday, Feb. 12 – Aspen Oasis, the worlds first on-mountain Champagne Bar, returns as does Clicquot in the Snow, the lively aprs-ski party at Ajax Tavern on its sun-soaked patio. Both offer Veuve Clicquot specials ($17 a glass and $89 a bottle), food and music, and will be open Friday to Sunday afternoons through spring, weather pending. For two weekends – March 11 13 and March 18 20 – theyll merge when Aspen Oasis is staged on the snow next to Ajax Tavern with surround sound. See below for what’s new to debut this season at both and what signature staples will resurface.

Aspen Oasis

The Nells mobile Champagne bar roams around the slopes, pulled by a snowcat, before settling into a unique place to socialize, swill and get your fill of bubbles and light bites. This year, youll see:
