MONT PLONK 28 june-26 august
APRES SKI PARADISE
Mont Plonk is a complete Alpine-themed takeover of Melbourne Public’s Terrace, promising an authentic après-ski experience slap-bang in the middle of Melbourne, despite being over 200km away from any hint of snow-kissed mountain caps.
Access to Mont Plonk will be free for the whole month, with passionate (après) skiers keeping toasty by the fires with a selection of warming wintery offerings – including alcoholic hot chocolate and spiced rum injected mulled wine.
Mont Plonk has also teamed up with Ugg Australia to create this pop-up urban ski lodge – so expect to be surrounded with masses of snuggly sheepskins, blankets and cushions at every turn.
For those looking for the full experience, Group Ski Passes can be purchased – offering groups of 4, 6, 8 or 10 a reserved table, a cheese fondue and shot-ski packages.
