As the evenings grow darker and the chilly temperatures return it can mean only one thing – it’s time to rug up and get cosy! Londoners in search of an escape from the wintery elements can head to the Montague on the Gardens for a slice of the Alps in Bloomsbury. From 17 November 2016 to 13 January 2017 the hotel’s outdoor wood deck will once again magically transform into an alpine Ski Lodge, complete with a cosy Log Cabin inspired area.
The Montague’s cosy deck area is adorned with pine trees, festive snowmen, reindeers, falling snow and twinkling lights. Visitors can select from a range of après ski favourites including flavoured schnapps and vodkas including candy cane, butterscotch, mandarin and toffee flavours, and winter warmers such as mulled wine, spiced cider and decadent hot ‘choctails’. Those looking for a more intimate escape can cosy up in the Log Cabin, complete with a decorative fireplace, cosy armchairs, sofas, blankets and a range of bar snacks and festive themed drinks.
To gain access to the Ski Lodge, guests can purchase a ‘ski pass’ for £30 per person, which includes a seasonal spread of mini turkey schnitzel, mini bratwurst and mini deep fried camembert (vegetarian options available too), plus a choice of three festive drinks from the Ski Lodge bar menu and access to the Ski Lodge for one hour.
Visitors can even take a ‘ride’ on the Montague Ski Lift and share a selfie using #SkiMontague on Twitter or Instagram for a chance of winning a luxury two night stay at The Montague on the Gardens.
Open from 3:00pm to 9:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays for ‘ski pass’ access, The Montague Ski Lodge and Log Cabin is the perfect winter wonderland retreat for weekend après-ski drinks, right in the heart of Bloomsbury. To avoid disappointment this Christmas, guests are encouraged to make a reservation with the hotel by calling 020 7637 1001.
Throughout the week, the Ski Lodge is also open for group bookings and Christmas parties for up to 200 guests with private hire packages starting from £70 per person.
