The Pink Winter Lodge: Frosted Edition at the Moxy is always a holiday treat with echoes of a white winter wonderland at a ski lodge. There are portable ovens for Pink Campfire S’mores made with pink marshmallows and sparkly frosted graham crackers, Snow Powder Donut with apple cider donuts and spiced powder sugar, and the Frosted Cupcake, a chocolate cupcake with chocolate filling and eggnog frosting.

Beverage Director Nikki McCutcheon has also concocted boozy combinations like the Ice Queen, a new spicy frozen margarita with hot honey and gilded salt rim, along with the Après Ski, Magic Hour's signature boozy Pink Hot Chocolate served with mini marshmallows.

On the second floor of the hotel the holiday pop-up – The Moxy Chic Chalet at Bar Moxy – will transport guests to a pink whimsical wonderland with roses and lights, complimented by seasonal menu offerings too.
