Veuve Clicquot will be available slopeside beginning in February

When Sabato Sagaria, food and beverage director at The Little Nell, was told a food truck in Aspen was a “no can do,” he opted for something more audacious: The Oasis, a mobile Veuve Clicquot–branded pop-up Champagne bar to grace the slopes of Ajax. “The Oasis was inspired by a trip to LA, where I checked out the food-truck scene and pop-up restaurants,” explains Sagaria. “We wanted to do something similarly spontaneous and unique, but playing to Aspen’s eternal quest for fun.” Beginning in February and operating through the end of ski season (snow conditions permitting), the bar (operating Friday to Sunday) travels by snowcat to changing on-mountain locales; clues to its daily whereabouts are announced on The Nell’s social media outlets. Outfitted in Veuve’s signature yellow hue, the bar features brut, rosé, and La Grande Dame, and a food menu includes California Caviar Company hackleback sturgeon. “It’s a true expression of Aspen’s joie de vivre,” Sagaria adds. “There is no better place on the planet for people to toast the world than at 11,500 feet.” 970-920-4600
