Hold onto your Heino, Margaret, because Copper Face Jacks is taking its punters on the piste.
The Harcourt Street nightclub beloved of guards, nurses and Sam Maguire-toting Dubs is heading on a group ski trip to Andorra.
Departing February 28 in partnership with Topflight, the weeklong extravaganza is the nightclub's second annual ski trip, following "one of the most exciting weeks of our lives" on the slopes of Arinsal earlier this year.
Tickets for the trip are now on sale via Topflight (topflight.ie) and Coppers itself (copperfacejacksskitrip.com) at €899pp and €999pp.
Expensive? Yes. But the price includes return flights from Dublin, transfers, seven nights' three or four-star accommodation at the Hotel Sant Gothard, breakfast and evening meals, lift passes, lessons and ski or snowboard hire.
Getting the shift, however, is up to you.
"Tickets are selling fast, but there are limited places still available," said Topflight's Offline Marketing Manager, Michelle Anderson.
A week of "epic" events is planned for 2016, including an All-Ireland ski race, a live set by DJ Marc McCabe, an Italia '90 party, BBQ on the slopes and more.
The 2015 event also saw Mundy jet in for a live gig, copious pints quaffed at The Derby, Arinsal's only Irish pub... and some skiing and snowboarding.
"It was the ultimate craic," Coppers says.

But wait... that's not all. All punters on the piste get the t-shirt too, or rather a souvenir 'Limited Edition Coppers Jersey'.
"These bad boys will provide the swankiest kit for many nights out to come, on the ski trip and at home on Harcourt Street," they say.
See yiz in Andorra... a nation holds its breath.
