Heidi’s Hut, a bastion bistro of ski hotspot Coronet Peak, is launching a limited run of banquet-style dinners.

Making the most of the season, the on-mountain restaurant will be serving a multi-course banquet inspired by the Alps, a perfect option for those looking to have a glamourous European après-ski experience. Coronet Peak Ski Area Manager Nigel Kerr explained that there has been an increased demand for luxury on-snow experiences from international and domestic tourists alike.

“Offering a gourmet experience at one of our most popular dining venues meets that demand in a novel way,” explained Kerr. “This is about enhancing the snow love affair that is so popular in Europe right here in Queenstown.”

Said love affair takes place for an exclusive 40 guests per night, who will get to enjoy exceptional views of the South Island night sky reflected in the Wakatipu basin. The family-style meal is a hearty, intimate experience, with the huge banquet accented by a roaring fire and companionship fostered with adjoining tables.

The bistro will offer a feast of Northern Italian fare like cheese fondue and braised lamb cheeks, and focus on using local, free-range produce. The package also includes a glass of Veuve Clicquot and return transport from Queenstown.

The package will run every Friday and Saturday night until ski season winds down on September 8th, and costs $135.
