An Après-Ski Village at The Academy

The Academy presents a dazzling Christmas
Taking patrons to all corners of the world through its seasonal celebrations, HKGTA is whisking us all away to a magical winter wonderland to celebrate the holidays. We may not be hitting the slopes this festive season, but we are going on an après-ski adventure at The Academy.

Inspired by the most stunning winter destinations and scenes around the world — from the idyllic frozen lakes of Aspen and the softest snow Niseko has seen to the luxurious ski lodges of St. Moritz — a Hong Kong Christmas will never be the same again. From 4 December to 2 January 2022, HKGTA’s very own global Après-Ski Village is going to bring a dazzling alpine Christmas to our patrons.

Patrons and their families can expect wonderful winter experiences and live performances, a lively Christmas market, cosying up with our nearest and dearest inside igloos, a special visit from Santa from the North Pole, a show-stopping Christmas tree lighting event, and a great deal of festive dining and drinking. Join us for a Christmas Eve BBQ, Carving Brunch, and Sharing Dinner or savour a Boxing Day Buffet Brunch and enjoy exclusive sake and wine offerings. Round up your nearest and dearest and experience the finest seasonal delights while cosying up in our snowy chalet this Christmas.

As The Academy transforms into a frosty dream, the month of December is filled with exciting activities to warm up to. Patrons are invited to create their very own “Après-Ski” adventure at HKGTA, and welcome to curate their own experiences with a host of pursuits to make this holiday season one to remember.
