One hundred tonnes of snow will land on North Sydney's Greenwood Hotel for a week of boozy cold weather shenanigans.
It may never snow in Sydney, but that's not stopping North Sydney's Greenwood Hotel from throwing a week of parties in honour of Snow Week. As is only fitting for this wintry celebration, one hundred tonnes of snow will be dumped on the venue every day from July 2–6.
But, the festivities will all kick off on Saturday, June 29 with a Canada Day party, complete with poutine, hockey tournaments, Canadian trivia, caesar cocktails (like a bloody mary, but with clam juice) and Canadian brews.
Next up is the Snow Week official launch party on Tuesday, July 2, with a ski lift simulation and free drinks and canapés from 5–7pm. Then, on Thursday and Friday (July 4–5), there'll be free hot chocolates and live bands on at lunchtime. Also on Thursday: two-for-one pizzas (for dinner) and inflatable snowmen.
To round out the week, the North Shore Snow Festival will take place outside the pub from noon–10pm on Saturday, July 6. Expect snow rail competitions all day, with Australian Olympic snowboarder Jarryd Hughes showing off his skills on the ramp, too. DJ sets and giveaways are also on the docket — those include Thredbo lift passes and brand-new snowboards.
