There’s nothing quite like that apres ski chic. For the dream winter hen party to remember, it’s time to hit the slopes! This is a splurge but if the bride and her girls like some reds and frolics in apres ski, the group might not mind splashing the cash. If a trip to the Alps, Mandorra, Party Hoffin or Val T is too budget busting (it definitely will be for most!) a group lesson on the Ski Club slopes in Kilternan could be right up an active bride’s street. Follow it with some reviving hot port for an après ski party. Here are some ideas for making an apres ski hen party them happen. Oh, and you can always skip the slope part and just go with the theme. Ice skating or something like axe throwing would also be a great to team with an apres ski theme.
