Dress to impress for all our après-ski parties, but with respect. Think faux-fur, knits and classy prints.   Fancy Faux Fur & Majestic: For the Mountain Soirée Think alpine chic, meets game of thrones, meets eccentric bohemian style. Fur coats and vests, chunky knitted sweaters, Bavarian style headpieces and creative outfits are all welcome at this long-table dinner. Animal onesies, and novelty gimmicks are not. See here for some style inspiration!   Alpine Adventurer: For all activities where you'll be working up a sweat A theme of its own, we love our Gore-Tex so we decided to make it a theme. Look good both on and off the slopes by dressing in appropriate alpine & athletic gear. Bring extra layers for activities like snowshoeing, Nordic skiing & other adventures! Check out our fave outfits here!   Canadian Outback: For the Closing Party Lumberjack shirts, plaid, & denim. Anything red & white! But leave the axes at home… (you stud you).
