Snow much fun on the slopes
In February AOK Creative had the pleasure of delivering two bespoke incentive ski trips across the Alps, for some of our lucky clients. Now we're back and have come down off of our natural high, we're reflecting on just why skiing is such an excellent choice for your next incentive travel event...
Group trips away for top earners and key clients are a fantastic way to motivate and reward. Taking everyone out of their regular surroundings and landing them as a group somewhere really far removed from a meeting room, helps people naturally start to get to know each other in a new light...meaning great networking both internally and externally, strengthening bonds and ultimately contracts.
In addition to hitting the slopes for some ski time, we always aim to delight our clients by finding new ways to have some fun in the snow. Whether that's through extracurricular activities or simply booking them into an incredible restaurant, AOK Creative know everything there is to know about where fun can be found in the mountains.
LUNCH IN THE SNOW
On a recent trip, we surprised our client with lunch on the slopes. No, we mean literally on the slopes. Our fabulous suppliers carved a table and bench into the snow and served our guests a fondue feast complete with all the trimmings and some tasty rose wine to keep the cold off. Complete with table settings and the stunning mountain backdrop, it was a lunch to remember.
SHOOTING ON THE SLOPES
In Val D'Isere we got our guests' blood pumping and hearts racing with a 'Biathlon Tir' which combined short bursts of running with rifle shooting (at targets!) to bring out their inner James 'The World is not Enough' Bond.
DINNER IN A YURT
Who needs a restaurant when you have a yurt? We bundled up our guests and transported them into the mountains for a wilderness experience in a yurt village! Complete with aperitifs around the campfire, and a beautiful Savoyard feast in their own private yurt, this was certainly something we'd like to repeat!
THE FOLIE DOUCE
Always. For apres. Where else compares to the Folie Douce? Dancing on the tables? Check. Acrobats? Check. DJ and a lot of Champagne? Check, check.
HOT DINING SPOTS
From the Cuckoo's Nest in Verbier to the Michelin starred L'Aterlier d'Edmond in Val D'Isere, we took our clients to the creme de la creme of alpine dining!
