Not often do the words off piste & Scotland fall into the same sentence, however we are delighted to be partnering one of Edinburgh's hottest venues, Hawke & Hunter, for Off Piste '09 - an alternative Christmas celebration. Off Piste '09 is a recreation of an Alpine village inside an Edinburgh Georgian townhouse, complete with individual ski chalets (all named after our favourite resorts), snow-covered trees, and a star-lit sky. Off Piste '09 is all things to all party-goers – it’s food as theatre, live music in performance, a party in the street, and mulled wine which will bring memories of the slopes flooding back! The event launched last week, here are some photos from the launch party: If you fancy heading along to get in the festive spirit then quote Ski Independence at the time of booking to receive £5 off per person on lunch or dinner.
