We have stayed at SBL many times, and you can learn more about SBL here.

The Invitation 

We invited guests to a 90 minute Twinspirational après ski fete that began at 4:00PM.

Our après ski party featured whimsical ski décor, scrumptious bites, delicious libations and a picture perfect photobooth. 

The Décor.

Our color palette featured Deer Valley’s signature colors: hunter green, gold, birch, charcoal and silver. Paperramma custom created our gorgeous mountainous backdrop. We  placed winter balloons and winter props at the Photo Booth. We decked the lounge chairs with adorable ski themed pillows and cushions so that guests could unwind after a long day on the slopes. We rounded out the decor with framed printables of whimsical ski expressions.

The Menu.

Since après ski precedes dinner, we served a delicious spread of cheese, cured meats, fruit, chips and dips.

The Sweet Treats.

For dessert, we served guests signature goodies from Deer Valley Bakery. On the first night, we featured Deer Valley’s Chocolate Snowballs and Pomegranate Gelees. On the second night, we served Stein’s Marzipan Cake and assorted gourmet cookies.

The Drinks.

We wanted guests to be able to relax after a long day of skiing. We served hot chocolate, sparkling water, soft drinks as well as red and white wine.

The Attire.

Anything goes with respect to attire at Après Ski. Some guests were dressed for dinner. The majority  of guests sported what they wore on the slopes, which included base layers, ski pants, ski jackets, sweaters, ski boots, hats and googles.

The Photo Booth.

We created a festive Photo Booth with Paperramma’s mountainous backdrop, bunny ears, lots of balloons and props by Big Dot of Happiness. It was love at frost sight for our guests, especially the little ones who loved the balloons and bunny ears. 

Special thanks to Emily and Abby of Deer Valley Resort, Mary Ann and her fabulous team at the Silver Baron and our adorable twinterns, Dylan and Keira, for all of their help.

Head on over to Deer Valley. After your skis are away, toast your snow-filled adventures with some fabulous après-ski. See you on the mountain, where we’ll be up to snow good.

    This sounds like so much fun! I’ve actually never been skiing. I did go to a ski lodge several years ago with some co-workers, but I went tubing instead. 🙂
