What goes best with skiing? Drinking! Listed below are my top 5 favorite après ski spots in the US. Enjoy.

Sky Bar @ Aspen/Snowmass, CO
Aspen definitely sets the bar high for après ski. If you are looking to do some serious partying- this is your place. Try something fancy- you only live once!

Happy skiers enjoy drinks après ski at Sky Bar at Aspen/ Snowmass.

Mangy Moose @ Jackson Hole, WY
This saloon has a great mountain feel. You’ll find locals and visitors enjoying PBR’s and live music. It was even acclaimed “One of the 10 hottest Apres Ski bars in the World!” by Forbes Traveler.

The Beach @ Arapahoe Basin, CO
Known as a challenging local’s mountain, A-Basin got it right when they decided to devote an entire base section near the parking lot to partying. Bring a beach chair, some brews, and tunes and join the party!

The Bag & Kettle @ Sugarloaf, ME
Great food, great people, and a laid back vibe make this a great place to toss a few back after a long day of skiing.

The Chamois @ Squaw, CA
Reminiscent of those good ‘ole college days, this place serves keg beer in plastic solo cups. It’s known to get rowdy so don’t forget your party hat!

HONORABLE MENTION: The Mooserwirt @ St. Anton, Austria. This place is said to be the birth place of après ski and is arguably one of the most legendary après ski locations in the world. There is no doubt they rage to perfection year after year. If you go be sure to order a stein of bomb beer!
