CSS team worked their magic and persuaded 4* Hotel Vanessa in Verbier, Switzerland, to open a week early and we privatised the hotel for the event. We wanted Verbier as it has a good early season snow record and every year Verbier 4 Vallées offer a free lift pass on opening weekend to those who dress up as Father Christmas – not only good for the budget but this gave the client an opportunity to brand Santa outfits and be part of a record breaking event. After a successful morning meeting the group broke off into different groups to enjoy their winter activities, this included skiing, snowboarding and a snow shoe hike. For the Christmas Party we privatised Le Rouge restaurant, it offered a traditional atmosphere, superb food and a perfect venue for the band and DJ. It was a fabulous weekend, we delivered everything the client hoped for, even the sun and snow made an appearance.
