Winter Sport:Aspen’s Pop-Up Champagne Bar
Courtesy Veuve Clicquot

For those more motivated by the promise of après-ski than the slopes themselves, Aspen now holds an extra thrill: The Oasis, a pop-up champagne bar clad in Veuve Clicquot’s signature shade of brilliant yellow and complete with lounge chairs, umbrellas and a solar-powered sound system. The Little Nell, co-sponsor of the resort, can be followed on Twitter (@TheLittleNell) or Facebook (, providing clever hints about the mobile bar’s current location—and, with Aspen’s new mountaintop cellular repeater, signal problems won’t keep you far from a crisp, snow-chilled flute of Veuve. This weekend, guests at The Little Nell get something extra: a Snow Beauty Survival Kit, created in conjunction with the natural beauty pioneer Fresh, which features six nourishing products (including the Veuve Clicquot–inspired Citron de Vigne scent) to fend off the harsh winter weather. No time for a last-minute ski holiday? The kits are also sold online and in stores nationwide. $60;
