Named one of the “Best Cocktail Festivals in America” by Fodor’s, the Apres Ski Cocktail Classic returns to Aspen/Snowmass for its second year, March 13-16. The event features four days of seminars, slopeside parties, cocktail-pairing dinners, a Grand Tasting and an apres-ski pub crawl all focused on the art of post-skiing spirits.
Event highlights include the art of cocoa and coffee; a raclette, fondue and Champagne seminar; the renaissance of gin; and two evening cocktail dinners in Snowmass. More than two dozen industry professionals, like “wine geek” Steve Olson and James-Beard-honored mixologist Charlotte Voisey, will host presentations throughout the festival, bringing national expertise to the intimate format at the Westin Snowmass, where the event is headquartered.
