The gorge of seasonal merriment will also include falling snow, snowmen, and ski racks, a bizarre pastiche of sights intended to warm even the most Scrooge-like guests. If none of the aforementioned seems appealing, you can always knock back one or more of the 12 flavored vodkas (one for each of the 12 days of Christmas, natch) to lift your spirits. We bet that Santa and crew will look a lot more charming if you can find some Grey Goose in that pear tree.
Staging an après-ski environment may seem slightly bizarre, but no more so than the vomitus of fairy lights and fake pine trees you're sure to find on any high street. So, if you're up for roasted chestnuts and the like this winter, you can book a room at the Montague and get a Guest Pass that includes access to the space (rates start at £205 for two nights), or purchase a Personal Pass for a mere £20, which will get you three flavored vodkas and a food tasting platter. The Christmas Party Pass is priced slightly higher at £83, but this includes an X-Mas barbecue buffet, DJ entertainment, half a bottle of wine, and canapés. Get your Rudolph on by clicking here.
