10 Places to Indulge for Après-Ski Slideshow


The East: Sugarbush, Vermont

The Pitcher Inn, Warren

After a day on the slopes at Sugarbush, indulge in a three-course meal at The Pitcher Inn. Located in the quaint town of Warren, Vermont, the inn’s 275 Main and Track’s restaurant is just the place to relax and indulge. Choose from decadent dishes like Oyster Stew with Puff Pastry, Butternut Squash Taleggio Ravioli, and Veal Rib Chops — your legs (and stomach) will thank you.

The East: Stowe, Vermont

The Alchemist, Waterbury

The Alchemist in Waterbury is not to be missed. This seven barrel brew-pub serves handcrafted beers and traditional pub fare made with locally sourced ingredients. After a pint of your favorite brew, choose from three different kinds of fries, wings made with either a dry rub or buffalo sauce, Porter-braised chicken, and so much more.

The East: Sunday River, Maine

Foggy Goggle, Sunday River

A fan of beer and wings? No day of skiing is complete for you without a stop at the Foggy Goggle, located at the base of the mountain. With an array of specialty drinks like the “Goggle Grog” and the “Foggerator,” it is no surprise that the Foggy Goggle is home to the longest après ski party.

The East: Whiteface, New York

The Cottage at Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa, Lake Placid

While visitors may flock, to the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery for a pint or two of their own Ubu ale, the locals know that The Cottage at the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa is the best-kept après ski secret in town. Set along the banks of picturesque Mirror Lake, relax with the daily drink special by the outdoor wood stove, or head inside for something to eat, choosing from a variety of filling snacks and over-stuffed sandwiches.

The West: Park City, Utah

J&G Grill at the St. Regis Deer Valley

After a day on the slopes, head to the St. Regis Deer Valley for an unforgettable meal at one of the recent additions to Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s expanding culinary empire. Choose from a selection of signature Jean-Georges dishes from around the world, like glazed short ribs and black truffle pizza, prepared with the high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients, while dining in a sophisticated, mountain-style room. Just be sure to save room for the salted caramel sundae, or the warm chocolate cake, a JG classic.

The West: Aspen, Colorado

The Little Nell, Aspen

Wind down with a drink and tapas at The Little Nell’s Terrace Bar, one of the most famous après-ski lounges, or indulge in truffle fries, roasted beef bone marrow, and braised Nueske bacon at the Ajax Tavern. A burger person? Their Ajax Double Cheeseburger was recently named the most well-executed burger in Aspen.

The West: Lake Tahoe

PlumpJack Café, Squaw Valley

For wine-lovers, there is no better place to unwind than at PlumpJack. From the team that brought us PlumpJack and Cade Wineries, this upscale establishment is one of Lake Tahoe’s premier dining establishments. After warming up with their hot rum punch, choose from carefully crafted dishes like roasted California quail and kabocha squash soup. Just be sure to save room for their indulgent version of a s’more, with homemade graham crackers, chocolate mousse, hot fudge, and marshmallow.

The West: Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Mangy Moose, Teton Village

A ski trip to Jackson would not be complete without a stop at the Moose. Located at the base of the mountain, the Mangy Moose has been serving skiers since 1967, and was named one of the 10 hottest après-ski spots in the world by Forbes Traveler. Whether or not you attempted Corbet’s Couloir, a pint or two of the local brew is a must before filling up on spicy Moose wings, baby back ribs, or elk steak.

The West: Big Sky, Montana

Buck’s T-4 Lodging & Dining, Big Sky

After a day on the slopes at Big Sky, head to Buck’s T-4, an après ski destination in the area for over 50 years. Kick back with a pint of Montana-brewed Big Sky IPA or Moose Drool Brown Ale and their red chilé-braised pheasant quesadilla. Still hungry? You’ve earned one of their bison meatloaf grilled cheeses all for yourself.

The West: Vail, Colorado

The Swiss Chalet, Vail

After a day in the back bowls, be transported to the Alps by stopping off for traditional fondue or raclette at The Swiss Chalet. Sit by the fire in the cozy, wood-paneled space and indulge in their Alpler Fondue with Herbs, a classic Swiss cheese fondue, or the Fondue Bourguignonne, served with potatoes and a variety of dipping sauces. Of course, a big stein of German beer is a must.
