Hit The Slopes This Festive Season With Our Top Alpine Themed Entertainment Picks
Fancy hitting the slopes this winter? If you’re a fan of winter sports and the eternally chic après ski party theme, take inspiration from snow-covered resorts for your festive party.
‘Après ski’ literally translates to ‘after ski’ and encapsulates the eating, drinking, socialising and partying that follows a day’s skiing or boarding on the mountain. After a hard day on the slopes, many ski enthusiasts flock to the bars and clubs of the resorts for the evening to drink, dance and blow off steam. With cosy faux furs, roaring fires, and a whole host of delicious alpine food and drink to choose from, a ski lodge party is among our favourite holiday party ideas this season.
The perfect winter party inspiration for high-octane corporate Christmas parties, cosy New Year’s Eve gatherings, or even themed winter weddings, you can be sure that alpine themed entertainment will add a shot of cool to your event.
We take you through our top picks to achieve this trending après ski party theme.
Set the tone with a mesmerising Alpine scene
Want to ensure that guests are wowed before even setting foot inside the door? A grand entrance is everything, so don’t miss out on this golden opportunity to set the tone of your ski lodge party.
Offering a highly unique and exciting spectacle, our Live Wood Sculptor is sure to set pulses racing as he deftly tackles giant tree trunks with a chainsaw. Dramatic and mesmerising to watch, this artistic talent can create beautiful sculptures, animals, figures and more from wood.
The perfect ski lodge party welcome, guests will be entranced as they wait to enter your venue, and return throughout the night to check his progress! His works of art can be offered as gifts at the end of the night, auctioned off for charity, create branded sculptures for your organisation’s headquarters, or even reveal logos. Illuminate with dramatic lighting as darkness falls and sprinkle with faux snow for a magical pine forest touch.
Looking for more holiday party ideas to create a grand entrance? You could also try our Snow Vortex Air Sculpture for a cultured and sophisticated take, or have our Reindeer Stilt Walkers bound about on their springy hind legs for a kitsch walkabout act.
Live wood and ice carving makes for dramatic entertainment and exciting holiday party ideas
Warm Guests Up With a Festive Ice Breaker
Once inside your ski lodge party, ensure the fun ensues with entertainment that encourages your guests to relax, let loose and enjoy themselves in their snowy surroundings.
Encapsulating the feelings of warmth, friendliness and good cheer, gemütlichkeit is a German word that epitomises après ski culture. Embrace this wonderful concept and give your guests a traditional gemütlichkeit welcome with costumed hosts and a warming Alpine drink of hot chocolate, schnapps, jager, or beer.
What better way to be served a drink than by a Winter Olympics team, a pack of sledge huskies, or bavarian hostesses? With a spectrum of themed costumed servers, you can go as traditional or as conceptual as you dare.
Keeping drinks literally on ice, a frozen luge and shot glasses are sure to go down a treat. You can even deliver an ice carving workshop for a creative and memorable corporate activity. Combine with coloured LED lights and fluro shots for a club vibe, or go for a more cultured beer tasting for an alternative take on our ski lodge party theme.
It wouldn’t be an après ski party theme without fun shots to set the mood!
Get Winter Party Inspiration From Themed Alpine Walkabout Acts
Moving through your venue, a whole host of walkabout alpine themed entertainment ensures an immersive experience to keep guests believing they’re partying in a chic alpine resort!

For added visual impact opt for futuristic LED poi spun by red and green acrobat elves! Wonderful Christmas entertainment for meet and greets, photo opportunities, walkabout sets and more, these cheeky acrobatic dancers are highly versatile and can alter their performance to perfectly suit your venue. The LED lights can be customised to display custom messages, logos or images.
A number of our acts are looking back to the heydays of travel to inspire their retro aesthetic, tapping into nostalgia to revitalise iconic destinations.
