From now until 8 September 2018, the banquet-style dinner will run on Friday and Saturday nights from 5pm to 10pm in line with Coronet Peak night skiing. However, this is not a ski-in, ski-out experience, but a full package with return transport from town and a glass of Veuve Clicquot included.
Guests will overlook the twinkling stars of Wakatipu basin with a roaring fire in the background, enjoying a rare and exclusive experience with no more than 40 fellow diners.
The multi-course banquet is inspired by Northern Italian fare designed according to the après theme, such as a delectable cheese fondue and braised lamb cheeks, utilising local free-range produce with a focus on limiting food mileage.
Coronet Peak Ski Area Manager, Nigel Kerr, says the package is a result of consistent demand in luxury ski on-snow experiences by locals and high-end domestic and international ski travellers.
“Offering a gourmet experience at one of our most popular dining venues meets that demand in a novel way – this is about recreating the après feel that is so popular in Europe, and enhancing the snow love affair, right here in Queenstown.”
The menu is served in a family sharing style, and tables are adjoined to encourage interaction and engagement between guests.
The package, touted as New Zealand’s most unique dinner, retails through Eventfinda at NZ$135.
