Where to go?

Après Chic at the Peak check-in is in the hearth room of the Club at Spruce Peak. Festivities will start at the ice rink with cocktails and an introduction by the MC. Guests will then parade (with sparklers) to the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center for more drinks, food, live auction, music, dancing, and MUCH more merriment.

What to wear?

Après attire from outlandish to catwalk is encouraged!  The event starts outside so furs, parkas, and capes are all a good start.  A portion of this event is outside!!  Coat check available at SPPAC after the sparkler parade.

What are transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We have made special arrangements for guests with Fleet Transportation, our newest Stowe car service, for a 15% discount.  We have arranged for complimentary valet parking at the Adventure Center circle.  Check-in for Après Chic at the Peak is in the hearth room at the Club at Spruce Peak.  Valet pick-up will be in front of the Performing Arts Center at the end of your evening!
