The Courchevel Kremlin
This year the traditional Russian season in Courchevel surprised its guests with a festival, organized by Megafon – one of the major Russian mobile phone operators.
On January, 7th, a copy of the Spasskaya Kremlin Tower, complete with a real clock, was built in ice, in the centre of town. On the day of the opening ceremony the town centre was heaving with people. Children enjoyed sliding down the ice hill, while their parents took pictures of the ice tower.
Later that evening the Cap Horn Chalet hosted a huge party, with nearly a thousand VIP guests and their close friends. These festivities were held to celebrate the start of Megafon’s new VIP service programme, which includes a choice of exclusive phone numbers, personal managers and a hotline for Megafon VIP clients.
Correction: In our Out and About, January issue, ‘Doing Good,’ the main sponsors of the event, BMI, provided tickets to London. Sun Interbrew also sponsored with Beck’s Beer and other prizes for the raffle.
