PAIRED PERFECTLY - Ski Vermont partners with Woodchuck Hard Cider to bring the perfect slopeside experienceFeb 20, 2023 03:05PM ● By TAY GREENLEAF
Since the beginning, Ski Vermont has kept its business close to home. Ski Vermont knows that for many visitors and Vermonters alike, the more than 20 alpine ski areas and resorts they support are a premier spot for experiencing everything Vermont has to offer. For this reason, the organization has built its mission around sharing more than just the slopes at the Vermont resorts; they also strive to promote Vermont products— namely food and beverage.
Since 2009, Ski Vermont has partnered with Woodchuck Hard Cider to bring are refreshing sip after a day on the snow.A born and bred Vermont company,Woodchuck has been creating delectable hard cider for over 30 years and shares the same mission as Ski Vermont: to promote all the diverse opportunities in the Green Mountains. Working together, the two organizations have hosted various events and ventures from specialty food and beverage tastings to collaborative promotions each winter.With this sort of camaraderie, it is no wonder Ski Vermont named Woodchuck the official hard cider of the slopes
Now, the partners are looking to expand their offerings by going back to the long-held tradition of après ski. Meaning “after-ski” in French, the tradition of congregating with friends and having a drink after a long day on the slopes is one of the most beloved aspects of any ski trip. Keeping this heritage in mind, Ski Vermont has expanded their sights into a bigger and brighter venture: a locally produced canned cocktail.
Continuing their partnership with Woodchuck, Ski Vermont has also added Day Chaser Cocktails; a canned cocktail brand that has become the official canned cocktail of the slopes. Offered in a variety of vodka-soda and tequila-soda options, Day Chasers are made with real spirits, real fruit juice and sparkling water, giving each a refreshing and light taste after you seized the day out in the mountains. Sure, a cold beer sounds great after a day in the elements, but neither Woodchuck nor Day Chaser are strangers to a good après scene and both serve as great options for those looking to indulge in a refreshing beverage to enjoy while reminiscing over a day well spent.
Day Chaser is the perfect option for those who love their après ski, and further illustrates the commitment these two Vermont based companies share in celebrating the culture of the state. Always focused on showcasing the best Vermont has to offer to the outside world; giving a little taste of the Green Mountains while exploring them seems like quite a perfect match.
